My husband and I happily gobbled up every bite of this dinner. My 13-year old is still refusing to eat mushrooms. I’m thankful that he’s beginning to eat tomatoes… and that he’s fairly willing to try most other vegetables, but I just can’t get him to eat those darn mushrooms. Oh well, more for me! I keep telling him that someday he will LOVE mushrooms. He does not believe me- ha!
