This week we tried out two more Jamie Oliver recipes from my copy of Food Revolution. So far, that brings the recipes I've made to 12, and my family has loved every single one of them. Not even just sort of loved, but lick-the-bowl-oh-my-god-you-MUST-make-this-again loved.
I also made a change that I've never thought would be possible, which is instead of serving a rice/potato/pasta side dish, I (wait for it) served TWO salads. TWO! I never could even get Hubs to eat ONE!
We are eating more vegetables then I ever thought possible.
What's up in our corner of the Revolution? I have lots of things to pass along to you.
-Mr. Oliver had a BIRTHDAY this week, so drop by his Twitter stream and wish him a Happy Birthday!
