Personal Notes:
Fresh vegetables were always served in the Trapp's house. Josephine was strick when it came to preparing a balanced meal. She would always say; "There always has to be something green on your plate." Most of my family cooks this way. This was her way of training us to eat our vegetables... Today, I do not serve my family a meal unless it includes at least one vegetable.
