Steaming some veggies!

I'll probably have a longer post tomorrow about my lastest venture in "cooking for the birds", as I am, once again, taking the 2 day approach to producing a big batch of food to be frozen in individual meal size portion.

And while it might be more of the same, how I prepare the veggies has changed this time around. Over the holidays I received a steamer and figured I'd give it a try with the veggies I cut up for this batch of bird food. So far, I'm quite impressed - putting aside the fact that I know that steaming allows for more nutrients to stay within the vegetables, I also found they had a sweeter taste comparatively than when I gave them a quick blanching, which I'm sure the birds will also enjoy!
