Something Strange is Happening to Me

I think I am beginning to like vegetables! I was your stereotypical picky kid. I would only willingly eat corn and canned green beans, and I could force down broccoli under duress.

As an adult I started adding vegetables to my cooking mainly for aesthetics. After all, a shish-kabob looks silly with just meat and potatoes. At this point I serve veggies every day, and really don’t mind them at all.

But tonight, I looked at those snow peas and red bell peppers with a new longing. As they stir-fried up to a tender crisp, I popped one in my mouth the way my dad used to snatch bits of turkey while my mom was carving.

And it was so tasty!

What’s happening to me?!
