Brussels Sprouts and Lima Beans

Tonight for dinner: the two vegetables that hold some taboo with many Americans. For either my third or fourth birthday party, my mom asked what vegetable I wanted served with dinner. I guess I enthusiastically replied, “lima beans!” and got my request. As the story goes, my cousin sat down at the table, looked at the lima beans, and said, “What did she do?” But, I was the kid who had a package of spinach prepared for my dinner while my parents ate baked potatoes and my brother ate fish sticks. I guess that most of my friends grew up with everyone in the family eating the same thing for dinner – I say, if it’s easier to make four different things that everyone will like, then so be it! (Of course, I haven’t ever had to cook for two kids before…).
