I Found the Most Delicious Frozen Veggies Today

I don't grocery shop very often, so they may have been around a long time, but today was the first time I saw this Caribbean Blend of frozen veggies.

At first I thought the yellow was squash, but it's not. Guess what it is?

Yellow Carrots! I liked that because it was different than the usual orange color. I just boiled these until crisp tender and tossed them in butter, salt and pepper...YUM! This blend has green beans, yellow carrots, broccoli, and red pepper. It would be great for a stir fry.

Since it's getting close to St. Patrick's Day, I thought I'd make some green cookies. I wasn't in the mood to work hard enough to make cut out shamrock sugar cookies, so I bought a bag of all green M & M's and tossed them into some oatmeal cookies.
They turned out very good. It's just the recipe on the Quaker Oats box with M & M's thrown in. With 3 cups of oatmeal, I think they can be considered "health food", don't you? LOL.

As I write this, I am watching Paula Dean's talk show. One of the guests is a large man who has sweat dripping down his face. I must have a very weak stomach, because seeing someone cook with sweat droplets almost makes me lose it. I keep imagining a big "plop" as the sweat drop drips into the saucepan. GROSS! I will leave you with that pleasant thought... :)


  1. Yum-o! I thought for sure that you were going to say the veggies had mango or coconut in them. : ) I haven't seen them, but I bet Trader Joe's has something similar.
    I agree-sweat dripping and cooking don't mix well. I wonder if Mario on Iron Chef may have that problem. My Bri has a sweating problem in the summer and I can't get near him after he cuts the grass or does something strenous-he soaks his t-shirt!

  2. Cookies!! These look good. Love the green M&Ms. They are said to make you feel a certain way-that's what people say...LOL

  3. Oh you'll love this!

  4. What? You don't go grocery shopping very often? Does someone do it for you or do you just buy in bulk infrequently?

    Regardless, the cookies look delicious and I agree, they are health food. Plus I agree that cooks who sweat and the sweat is dripping should not be cooking. That is gross.

  5. What a thought to leave us with, Zoey!! Dripping sweat while cooking..
    The cookies look yummy, I love anything oatmeal. Oh yeah I agree they must be very healthy.

  6. dianne, Mango and coconut...that's a thought! Someone will probably make a mint off that idea.

    DH usually does the shopping. I do it every now and then, but mainly he does. And he does a FINE job of it.

    Betty,those cookies are really very, very good! They seem better than normal. It must be those green M&M's!

  7. I'm glad I read your post because at first glance, I thought they were hamburgers with m&m's in them! LOL!

  8. I know a kid who would probably eat hamburgers if they had M & M's in them, but maybe not the green ones... that might look too much like a vegetable for her.

    I haven't baked in awhile Zooey and may steal this idea from you - thanks!
