No, I don't particularly like the title "Deceptively Delicious" by Jessica Seinfeld, but I think it can be overlooked since the idea is to nourish your family by infusing pureed vegetables into the recipes. It seems that my daughter and my husband have no trouble (yet) with veggies, but it is I who needs the 'deception'. Don't get me wrong. I buy veggies. I look at them. I serve them to my family. But, I poke at them and then fill up on rice. It seems that in my 36 short years here, I've yet to crave broccoli. Ever. And I still don't like to cook, but I asked for a cookbook. Mom, note the day and time.
H also gave me a beloved photo album with photographs from our honeymoon. We had never gotten around to printing out those easy-to-print digital photos. I only expected a paper envelope of pictures at some point, but a black leather album with white stitching was all put together for me...um, us.
Many other wonderful gifts (and food) were received for my birthday. A big thank you to all who celebrated with me. I wouldn't have wanted it any other way.
