Water / Work in Progress

Water is going down much easier this week.  Might be because it’s very hot and humid right now?  Whatever the cause, it was great to see 4 of the 6 water bottles I’d filled Sunday night come back to the sink empty last night.

However, the early summer vegetable soup I made was not a hit.  Maybe it was the broccoli, the kale, too many vegetables?  I refrained from adding pasta, but if I did that, plus some white beans, it would have made a fabulous meal (to me).  The kids picked out the potatoes, made sandwiches.  Sigh.  At least lunch is done for the rest of the week.

It’s always a work in progress.  I remember turning up my nose at my Mom’s soups and casseroles, the side dishes of squash or greens.  I will never forget the acorn squashes coming out of the oven, halved on a tray, one half per plate.  The look of horror on our faces when we realized we were supposed to eat that.  I eat that now.  I’m hoping my kids will too, later in life.
