Food & Party 125


We gave 10 CafeMoms enough Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers for one family meal. We also sent them Flip cameras so they could capture the experience on video. We're going to feature a video each Monday for the next four weeks. One lucky mom who posts a comment on any of these videos will win a $500 Crate and Barrel Gift Card!

Today's video is from Jillysmom.  Watch the video and answer the question below to get entered to win.

This week's question:

Jillysmom's DH says he's normally not a big vegetable eater. Do you have the same situation in your home?

My daughter and I eat them mostly raw though.  We do not do too many cooked veggies.  My hubby won't touch them to save his life!

Cool idea!

Yes, my family eats their vegetables... but sometimes I have to get creative with the presentation.  I have had to explain to them numerous times that corn is a grass/grain, not a vegetable (same with potatoes), so they count as a side dish, not a veggie!!!

I only have 2 picky eaters My oldest son and youngest daughter are horrible, But I did get my daughter to eat the chessy rice and brocoli and she loved it. So we'll be buying more.

It depends on what they are!!  My little one loves salad, corn and sometime fresh carrots.  My son loves, corn, fresh carrots and sometime broccoli.  Occasionally fresh green beans steamed with some butter but that is rare.  I was never a good vegetable eater but I try to make sure I do better because its a hard switch to make as an adult and I want them to see us eating it!!

Jillysmom's DH says he's normally not a big vegetable eater. Do you have the same situation in your home? Will your family eat their vegetables?

I am pleased to say "YES!".  My family eats veggies from "A" (acorn squash) to "Z" (zucchini)!  And many in between including spinach, beets and broccoli... I don't have the the problem of picky veggie eaters, so throw together any combination and we're sure to eat it!   =)
