Lately I have only been reading books that are set on Nantucket. This is by accident, not design. Although...I haven't been there in 9 years. I wouldn't mind going again someday. I think E would enjoy the beaches. We did take him to the beach once this summer, but it was frightfully hot. At one point he fell asleep against my leg.

D is trying to eat healthier (this is quite a turnaround for someone who used to avoid vegetables, despite being vegetarian). So when I made capellini with tomato pesto tonight, I used whole-wheat pasta instead. And you know what? It actually tasted better.

Tomorrow night I am planning to make black bean burgers with salsa mayonnaise. I know it sounds gross, but I am looking forward to it. I love both salsa and mayonnaise. And guacamole (though I won't mix that in).

I've switched whole wheat pasta. It definitely tastes different, but I've never found the flavor to be offensive in any way. I think it adds an interesting dimension to pasta and makes it feel more like a meal. It's heartier, I guess you could say.

What is it with men and vegetables? My husband and my uncle (whom I recently visited) are vegephobes.

Yeah, I think it's common. He has always liked Brussels sprouts, though.

That's funny--apparently that's one of the few that my uncle likes too.

They actually are good, I was shocked to discover it. Especially sauteed with olive oil. I agree with you on the whole wheat pasta, by the way. I'm still a bit apprehensive about using it in my baked ziti, but it should be fine :)
