We are doing a pork loin for dinner. Probably seasoned and grilled, knowing my husband. But my job is the side dish. I'm attempting these.... http://pinterest.com/pin/474074298245184829/ Broccoli cheese bites, found on Pinterest. My kids are very choosy. My son loves veggies of all shapes and sizes, and is really good about trying new veggies or ways too cook them. My girls wont eat many veggies at all, they are all about the fruit, instead. Getting my big kids to help in the kitchen (and in the veggie garden!) gets them excited to try foods that they were reluctant to try before. My big kids love to measure and love to crack the eggs, so this recipe is perfect for them. Plus, it includes cheese, which is one of their all time favorite foods. Can't go wrong with a cheesy gooey goodness. We just planted broccoli in our vegetable garden. Its our first year growing broccoli, so hopefully this summer/fall, we will be eating these bites with our home grown broccoli instead of getting it from the grocery store.
So dinner last night was good. We marinated the pork in a bourbon sauce, and Hubby grilled it. I made some garlic cheddar biscuits and the broccoli bites turned into broccoli cauliflower and spinach patties instead. (Hubby said "Make them a bigger, manly size!" and so I did.) I drained the spinach, chopped the broccoli and cauliflower in my food processor (I used about 2 cups of chopped veggies) and mixed it with a cup of italian bread crumbs, a cup of grated cheddar and lowfat mozzarella, 3 eggs, and some salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
