If you've never tried podasts, I recommend giving them a shot. They're free, and I found I like them much better than spending my entire commute listing to radio djs and commercials. I also get to learn new things everyday, which pretty much rocks.

- Mushrooms. I always thought of them as a garnish, but they hold their own too! (apparently 5 mushrooms have more potassium than an orange).
- Kale. Good for you, but we still haven't discovered a great way to prepare it. We tried baking as chips, but the aftertaste left something to be desired.
- Crockpot corn chowder- an old favorite, but with cabbage instead of bacon this week.
- Broccoli Cauliflower bake- Yum, and I'm not a huge cauliflower fan.
- Golden Mushroom Pasta- with mushrooms substituted for the usual chicken.
4 cups broccoli florets
3 cups cauliflower florets
1 can cream of mushroom soup
3 oz. cheese
1 tbsp onion
1⁄2 tsp. dried basil, thyme, or marjoram
3⁄4 cup soft bread crumbs
1 tbsp. butter or margarine melted
In large saucepan, cook broccoli and cauliflower in boil- ing water 6-8 minutes or until almost crisp-tender. Drain and remove from pan. In same saucepan combine soup cheese, onion, and seasoning. Cook and stir until bubbly. Stir in the cooked vegetables. Transfer to casserole dish. Combine bread crumbs and butter and sprinkle over mixture. Bake at 375 for 35 minutes or until heated through.

- You can survive on vegetables
- I remembered how much I like cucumber
- Cabbage is actually good for you! Who knew? We both thought it was nutritionally void like iceberg lettuce, but turns out it's ridiculously good for you.
