Boiled Cabbage - A critique

Loving Mother who insists that something green be served with every meal: "Well.  What did you think of the boiled cabbage tonight?"

9 year old boy who puts up with his mom's neurotic notions: "It was good.  Ya know, just kinda tasteless...like water."

Who knows what happens to our tastebuds as we get older.  All of the sudden, collards and field peas begin to sound like a delicious combination.  On the other side of the coin, I tried some Chef Boyardee the other day and almost had to spit it out!  Yuck!  And to think I grew up on that stuff!

Somethings things don't change though.  I found this recipe on Bakerella today.  My mouth began to water and I am quickly scanning through the ingredients to see what was used.  My son walked up and with an awed looked on his face asked, "Can you cook that for supper tomorrow night?"
