Veggie Month: Bean Sprouts

I had a vegetable ready to go this afternoon when KK suggested we walk down to the grocery store to scour the produce section together. Never one to pass up a walk (especially with tomorrow's forecasted rain), I decided to pick up a different vegetable for today.

I ended up with bean sprouts, which I love but haven't eaten in some time. My childhood bean sprout memory is of my mom putting them on salads, which she'd dress with olive oil and apple cider vinegar.

Tonight, they gave my salad a nice crunch. So did the croutons, but this isn't carb month.

Are vegetables really to be eaten? I grew up hiding them under my leftover baked potato skins. One of my sons learned that trick without me even teaching him. Now of course I have a wife that feeds me weeds all the time. She wants to keep me healthy so I can take care of her in her old age. I think I have a problem with her logic???

Weeds and mush--two of my favorite food groups.
