I've changed.

Growing up I was a very picky eater. I don't think I ever tried anything if it wasn't from the freezer or a nicely packaged bright box from the pantry, or the nearest drive through I could find. I've changed. If you would have asked me a year ago if you could eat some of my cookie dough mid baking, I probably would have said yes, but I definitely wasn't happy about it, nor did I ever even attempt to taste my own cookies before I baked them. And now I can't keep my own hands out of the bowl. I never realized the goodness I was missing out on! Unfortunately this wasn't the only thing I have been missing out on. Here's a list of foods that I have learned to try/love in the past year:

Avacado
Guacamole
Bananas (i'm still working on the loving part)
Sushi
Asparagus
Green Peppers
Cucumbers
Protein bars
Any type of fruit salad
Blackberries
Grapefruit
Pears
Beans (Black and refried)
Tomato bisque soup
Sweet Potatoes
Squash
Salt (okay I know what you're thinking, but I NEVER put it on anything unless it was homemade popcorn and I never realized what it did to things until I put it in some soup a couple weeks ago and it made it taste so much better!)

So I'm growing up! There aren't many things I won't try anymore and it has really made a world of difference...

**Did you notice that I tried not to mention the long blogging vacation that I was on for a while...? Let's just leave that in the past and go forward from here :)

I feel verrrrrry good about this. I won't mention the non-blogging. Or the part where I'm not on your reader's list. Just saying.

I'm so proud of you! I'll give you a call if I have picky children so you can tell them what they are missing out on.

Also, since you're reorganizing your blog roll, mind deleting the links you have to "Jenna" and "Jenna2" and making Jenna link to www.thatwifeblog.com (It won't change again!)
