Thanks meemee for the potato recipe, sounds like something I could make with dd1 that she'd really like too. AND the carrot-cardamom rice sound great too (cardamom is my favorite, I'll definitely try it out here - carrots have been a past favorite but aren't right now, but I always have them around and I'd really prefer they get used up more often.)
I think spinach pie will go over well too, and doing black bean/rice tacos is a good idea (a little different than we've done it before, so new and good).
Yay for some good ideas! I just recently stumbled upon a cookbook with some simple stir fry sauces (& a slightly different technique to doing stir fry veggies than I've normally done) so that's a plan for us tonight.
There's this lemon-coconut stir fry sauce that I suspect people will actually like ?? we'll see (I think it sounds really good, so - that matters too).
Here's the recipe for the sake of sharing:
1/2 c coconut milk
1 tsp lemon zest, 3 of lemon juice
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp sweet sherry (or similar cooking wine, or water)
4 tsp brown sugar
(add to your stir fry with 2 tsp cornstarch mixed with 2 tsp water, to thicken, until heated after cooking everything through)
