  1. Yah, wish my boys were a LOT younger. You won’t find them playing with their food at 9 and 12, but helping me prepare it might go a long way to getting them to try the food! I love beans and potatoes!! YUM


  2. Green beans and potatoes are the two veggies my boys and I love raw. They will eat potatoes pretty much any way I make them, but green beans go further raw than cooked any day here!
