I love steamed green vegetables. With lots of ICBNB butter spray. Lately this sustenance has become a 'snack' for me - as I am trying to be more health conscious. The upside of snacking on vegetables has been that none of my offspring wishes to share with me. I don't know about other Mom's but I become overly aggravated when I fix myself a plate/bowl/dish of something and my half hound-dog kids come sniffing about and ask for a bite. (It is my food, and I don't want to share!). Sadly, vegetables are no longer a 'safe' dish. Today, I fixed myself a big plate of steamed broccoli. I was excited to sit down and 'enjoy' it when the kids came running. Two of the three saw what I was about to eat and excitedly asked to have some because they love it so much. Now don't get me wrong - I am happy that my kids are excited about eating their vegetables, HOWEVER, now instead of hiding my M&M's from them I will have to hide my broccoli.
