I have found the secret recipe for getting your children to eat their vegetables. Seriously, last night Taylor was cheering for her asparagus, and Maddie ate 4 helpings of it. Just cut the ends off of the asparagus, place them on a foil lined pan, spray some olive oil on them, add some soy sauce, and sprinkle with fresh ground pepper. Bake at 400 degrees to desired tenderness. This works for fresh snap beans and brussel sprouts too. I've never seen children this young gobble these kinds of vegetables like this.
