Need to eat more vegetables?

(I posted a slightly different version of this as a comment to a friend, but it's worth repeating.)

The March issue of Delicious Living (free at many natural-foods retailers) has an article called "Veggies in Disguise" that's got a bunch of tasty recipes in it.

Aside from roasted root vegetables and squash through the winter, I don't eat many veggies until they come in season locally and I can buy them fresh at farmers' markets. I don't like canned or frozen stuff; all we buy canned is fruit cocktail because Laurel eats it like there's no tomorrow. (If you buy in bulk, a 6lb 10oz can of Del Monte Fruit Cocktail, drained, packs into around 16 1/2 cup Gladware mini rounds. At $5 for the can and the cost of Gladware, which I wash and reuse, it's a lot cheaper than individually packaged fruit cups.)

It's an illustration by Ernest Shepard that accompanies the poem "The Good Little Girl" in A.A. Milne's _Now We Are Six_. I scanned it out of _The Complete Poems of Winnie-the-Pooh_ (a compilation of When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six); it's on page 175 in the hardcover edition.

If you stumble across "Classic Pooh" merchandise among the regular Disneyfied versions of Winnie-the-Pooh, it's based on Shepard's illustrations that went with the earlier editions of the Pooh stories. I used to collect it, but Laurel's partial to the Disney version so it's all packed away until she's older and can appreciate it.
