It took two hours to snap all those beans!! Wow-ee.
Now to tell you what I plan to do with them.....
I will warn you that this has earned me (yet again) the title of MEAN OLD MOMMY from my darling husband.
I am bound and determined to get vegetables into Gator-boy. He's gotten smart enough now that he spits em out no matter what I hide them in.
I've been toying with this idea for awhile and now it's going into action...right after payday.
My kids put either ketchup or BBQ sauce on absolutely everything! (even Mac N Cheese!)
I am going to take these beans (which aren't a favorite, even for Sonshine who will eat most veggies) add corn, carrots, squash, spinach, peas, Worchestershire Sauce, and Tomato sauce...maybe some garlic powder too and puree the whole mess till smooth.
It then will be put in a clean ketchup bottle and presented as "Momma's Special Sauce" (McD's eat your heart out!) To be served on whatever the mood strikes.
I'm also thinking about using it as sauce for pasta.....ummm possibilities are endless.
Subvet and I go back and forth about whether or not ketchup counts as a vegetable. This "ketchup" most definitely WILL!!
Of course, it'll probably look like baby puke...but if kids'll eat this cake...they'll eat anything!!
By the way, PenofJen credits me with the cake recipe...I got it from Stephanie, it's part of her Halloween menu.
