Subbing....
What a great thread! I find it's easy to cook cheap meals this time of year. Lately, my favorites: Scrambled eggs with veggies, usually it's yellow squash or zucchini. Dice it really small, then sautee it in butter, then add the eggs and scramble, and add some cheese at the end. Something we call bean stew. In the crockpot: 1c salsa, 1c or so of water, one diced small- sweet potato, three cans total of black and pinto beans, some frozen corn, and some...
As a mother of a child who has a nut allergy, I appreciate your sensitivity to the other children in the class. But even I see this as being very restrictive. And oreos and dingdongs have wheat in them. I also missed why hummus would be out, I didn't see you mention a bean allergy. When I make hummus, there are no items in it from your "no" list. As for filling breakfasts, I find winter squashes and sweet potatoes and avacados filling. HOw about: ~mashed roasted...
My kids love beets, boiled until they are tender, then with butter and salt. They say they taste like corn.
I am not in an urban area, but there is a good magazine that is newish and seems to be published about once a season called "Urban Homesteading" that I really like.
My 8 yo loves beets. I just boil them til they're tender (it takes longer than you'd think) and put them with butter and salt. I've never had pink pee or stools, but my dh and dd tell me they do. I don't understand why this is a problem for some of us but not others.
I was also going to say that honey never goes bad, so you should be able to keep it as long as it takes to use it up. But my favorite ways are: hm granola over plain or vanilla yougurt pb, honey and banana sandwiches.
I am thrilled that there are other people in the world who are concerned about this. I have recently made changes in our diet, and one of the big reasons is to avoid gmos. Sometimes I think I'm the only person in the world who cares. I am not at all smart enough to know much about dna and all the scientific talk, but the bottom line, to me, is that genetically modifying any type of organism is wrong. It goes against nature, and I don't believe it is something God wants...
I didn't vote. My answer would be absolutely not, if that was an option. First of all, I wouldn't like dust particles in my food. Second of all, it's bad feng shui.
I use it for handsoap in the kitchen and bathroom. I dilute it in reused foaming dispensers, about 10-20% soap, the rest water. I have had lots of comments from guests about how good it smells. I also use it in a homemade cleanser. Dr Bronners and some baking soda. I used to premix it in a bowl, but now, I just sprinkle some baking soda, then drizzle some dr bronners in the bathroom sink, and I let dd do the cleaning. She loves it and I don't have to worry. ...
