Menu Week 3

The table format for the menu was fun but it was cutting off the end of the week.  So I am just going to list the days and meals below.  Also, for the most part we have left-overs for lunch.  In that case I do not indicate a meal.

Tonight, we had the bean wraps and all by the littlest child cleaned their plate.  Little M even asked for a side of steamed kale.  We are all getting LOTS more veggies.  The bean wraps were my own recipe.  Sauted onion, garlic & green peppers, 1 T cumin, 1 T Chili Powder, 4 c. of black beans with their liquid, 2 c. chopped kale.  Black Pepper to taste. I mashed the beans as you would for refried.

I feel like I am starting to get a handle on the recipes and food prep.  The kids have been amazingly open to the changes and trying new things.  I can’t believe we are into our third week.  Last night and today we had the opportunity to share a meal at home with friends and family.  It was encouraging to be able to share ‘plant strong’ foods with them and still enjoy and socialize.  I am glad to see we can still gather over food!
