My mother-in-law always makes vegetables out of a can (microwaved no less!), and they always taste bland and lifeless.  It's not even cheaper to eat them that way, so it's only the convenience factor.  I'd much rather go to a little more effort and enjoy better tasting food.  Bleh.

Frozen vegetables, while still being a far cry ( wink.gif ) from fresh vegetables, are much better - or at least tolerable.  The only frozen food vegetables I eat regularly are brussel sprouts - steam those puppies and add some butter and salt and yummo!

Bet you've got some nasty farts after eating those brussels sprouts.  Does your wife make you sleep outside?

When you've been married long enough though, you start having competitions.

Okra is one of those vegetables that is good prepared in one way but horrible in another way. I have to eat it fried, I love it! But I will not eat it stewed, it's slimy.

Okra is one of my favorite vegetables. I love it stewed. My grandmother used to make it all the time. She also made dandeloins with dandolion tea. I used to love it when I was younger.

eww, slimy stewed okra. bleah

I want to know how people can eat yams with marshmallows on them on Thanksgiving on their plate.
It is like having a scoop of ice cream with turkey and gravy on stuffing on it.
It's just.......wrong. tongue.gif

I do have one really, ultra-important question here:

Does anyone use the word "vegetables" anymore?  Sure, I've seen a few uses in this thread, but it seems like it's been replaced mostly with veggies in the mainstream vocabulary.

For the record (and as if any of you cared), this is a major pet peeve of mine.  I HATE "veggies".  Not the food - the word.

i guess you hate rbi's or ribbies as baseball fans call it. laugh.gif
are you an english teacher? unsure.gif

Actually "ribbies" doesn't bug me.  Just "veggies".  I don't really know why; perhaps it's overuse?  (Not too many people outside of baseball fanatics say "ribbies".  Also, it's pronunciation of an abbreviation, not shortening a word).

Perhaps it's because it's sort of evocative of baby-talk?   confused13.gif

it's not a big deal in my world and sometimes rolls off the tongue a little faster when you're yelling to the wife on her way to the supermarket. "hey honey, pick up some veggies!!! as oppsed to v e g e t a b l e s.  you could be mugged and stripped naked on my block in the time it takes you to say vegetables. laugh.gif

I also don't like saying "veggies" mainly because its what my mom said all the time when I was a young child. I'm a grown-up now and it's time to say VEGETABLES! cool.gif

Bell peppers and I really don't play well together. I try to pick 'em out if I find them in something I'm eating.

My wife's family makes that shit, to me, it's disgusting. I can't even abide the smell of it.

There isn't a vegetable that I don't like.  I used to hate beets, but acquired a taste for them as I got older.

I loved spinach as a little girl too.
