Surprise! My Kid Likes Veggie Chips #AGiantSurprise #spon

I love a surprise, especially the ones I know about ahead of time.

Patrick can attest to this; he hates buying me things or planning surprises for me. He claims, somewhat rightfully so, that whatever the surprise is, I won’t like it because it’s not exactly what I wanted. This probably has something to do with my selective control issues.

But surprise deliveries of food? Yes, please, and thank you!

No, wait. That’s not always true. Like that one time my sister had a disgusting chicken on pizza delivered to me on my birthday, and I unsuspectedly took a bite. That was just plain cruel, sister.

Last week, I got a surprise package of the new Green Giant Veggie Chips delivered to my front door. This, my friends, is a good surprise.

Green Giant Veggie Chips

My 7-year-old is a salt girl, so she polished off 1/2 the bag before anyone else could get so much as a single chip. When she stopped stuffing her facehole with the surprisingly good veggie chips, she begged for more. Even her sister, who like me is a sweets girl, loved the Sweet Potato chips. Well, they are SWEET potato chips after all.

I detest green beans. but I have to admit this reipce is addictive.1 lb green beans, cut into 1 inch pieces (about 3 cups)4 tablespoons butter3/4 cup finely chopped onions1 tablespoon sweet Hungarian paprika2 tablespoons flour1 cup sour cream1/2 teaspoon salt Add the beans to a pot of boiling salted water, reduce the heat to medium and cook uncovered 10-15 minutes or until just tender, drain.Melt butter in a large skillet, add the onions and cook 4-5 minutes or until they are translucent.Remove pan from heat, add paprika and stir until onions are well coated.In a small bowl, wire whisk the flour into the sour cream, add to the onions, add salt and mix.Return the skillet to the stove and simmer on low heat 4-5 minutes or until the sauce is smooth and creamy.Gently stir in the beans and simmer 5 minutes.Carrots (also try making carrot cake)1 (16 ounce) package frozen baby carrots1/4 cup butter1/4 cup light brown sugar1 (1 oz) package ranch dressing mix (yes I know sounds weird)Cook carrots according to package directions, drain well.In the meantime, melt butter in a large saute pan over low heat.Add sugar and stir until dissolved.Add carrots and Ranch mix, stir until carrots are coated.Increase heat to medium, and stir until carrots are hot and glazed, about 5 minutes. Zucchini (also try chocolate chip zucchini bread)2 medium zucchini2 teaspoons olive oil1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt, to taste (Lowry’s or Johnny’s)1/3-1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, to taste (and size of zucchini) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.Clean the medium (or large-ish, if you like your squash as I do!) zucchinis well, cut the ends off, and slice them lengthwise into quarters so that you have eight pieces.Coat the bottom of a baking dish with the olive oil and place the zucchini pieces in the dish.Sprinkle with the seasoning salt (I sometimes lightly spray the zucchini with pan spray before sprinkling on the seasoning salt), then with the Parmesan cheese.Place uncovered in the oven and bake for 20 minutes on 350 degrees F. Cauliflower Cheddar Puffs (definately taste more like junk food)1 cup flour1 teaspoon baking powder1/2 teaspoon salt1/4 teaspoon pepper1 egg1/2 cup milk1 teaspoon melted butter1 cup chopped raw cauliflower1 cup shredded cheese1/2 cup finely chopped onions Make a smooth batter with first 7 ingredients.Mix in next 3 ingredients.For best results, refrigerate for an hour or so (but not necessary).Drop by spoonfulls into hot oil and deep fry til brown and crispy.Sprinkle with salt immediately upon removing from oil.
