a bit of a bust
tonight i decided to try a new recipe for dinner. i was pretty excited about it. i have been trying to find some healthy recipes and this one had whole wheat pasta and a light sauce made from fresh lemons (rather than the thick, creamy sauces i am usually attracted to). it seemed like it might be a winner...until we took the first bite. it didn't take long to see that dave was not digging the new recipe. i told him i wouldn't be offended if he wanted to throw it out and have something else. he was practically out of his chair on the way to the kitchen by the time i finished my sentence. i tried to stick it out for a few more bites, but in the end we both ended up with a dinner of honey nut cheerios. oh well. it was worth a shot. i would welcome any healthy recipes that could be appreciated by a non-health nut family. but for the time being i will feel good about the fact that we are eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables (sunflower market, i love you).
