The summer is quickly disappearing! It's been a learning process for all of us. The boys have learned to try new and different vegetables
and my husband has learned that a meal can be good without meat. I fixed a delicious soup again today with navy beans, chopped potatoes, chopped carrots, sliced onions and frozen corn put in at the last to cook in the heat of the other veggies. There was too much liquid for my liking so I thickened it with whole kernel corn meal. My husband ate 2 big bowls of it. I would have added peas too but didn't have any today. He likes casserole and soup type meals better than eating vegetables separately and I'm glad to oblige.
The boys have been helping with some of the preparation of their meals and they like their own "cooking". It's going to be awfully quiet again in about 3 weeks. We've enjoyed a most memorable summer with them.
