I made the ratatouille tonight and here's how it went down:
Positives: It was much quicker to make than I thought, it tastes great (to the big people in the house) and it's very filling and nutritious.
Negatives: Mr. I-need-ratatouille of course wasn't as crazy about it as he thought (although he did eat it when prompted, even the big tomato bits and the onions) and little miss didn't like it. Not enough flavor, I guess. She eats spicy indian zucchini like nobody's business.
In other news, it's cold. We've had a mild winter, but this week has been pretty bitter. The power was off for a couple of hours one morning for some repairs. During that time, I got some milk out of the fridge and thought to myself, "Oh, better close the fridge up quick so the food doesn't spoil." That's Texas thinking there. Last time we had friends over for dinner, I chilled drinks on the balcony and they were COLD.
