what are hobo packets? I'm intrigued. . .

last night we had lentil soup with beluga lentils, carrot, celery, spinach and tomato and potatoes sauteed in olive oil with onions

tonight I have NO freaking idea. There's a bunch of non-compatible ingredients in my house. I hate when this happens. Maybe salmon salad sandwiches or baked lentils?

finally midwife mama to my home-birthed nurslings: Noemi Sakura 16.10.07 & Seder Pádraig 13.7.09 and partner to their lovely daddy

Not sure why the link didn't work. Here's the recipe though. It turned out really well and my kiddos loved it. I used sesame oil in place of the peanut/canola suggestion.

For the stir-fry::

2 tablespoons canola or peanut oil
1-2 teaspoons curry paste, hot or mild, to taste
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
1 red onion, sliced or diced
4 cloves of garlic, minced
2-3 cups chicken pieces - if using raw chicken, take proper handling precautions
2 cups broccoli florets
1 large red bell pepper, cored, sliced thinly
2 medium carrots, cut into matchsticks
2 cups thinly shredded cabbage (save time and use a cole slaw mix)

For the sauce::

Combine:
1 1/2 cups hot gluten-free chicken broth
2-3 generous tablespoons smooth natural peanut butter (sugar-free)
1 tablespoon unsulphured molasses* see notes
Juice from half a lime, or to taste
Pinch of cayenne pepper or spicy red pepper flakes, to taste


When the rice is almost done, heat the oil over medium heat in a wok (or large deep sided skillet) and stir in the curry paste and ginger; cook for a minute to infuse the oil.

Add in the onion and cook for 5 minutes, till softened. Add the garlic and chicken and stir-fry it till it starts to turn a bit golden. Toss in the veggies and do some more stirring. After a minute or two, add the peanut sauce [you've tasted it, right?] and continue to cook until the chicken is done [no longer pink inside] and the veggies are tender-crisp. Don't overcook- stir-fried veggies are best with a fresh, slightly crisp bite [but you know that, right?].

Fluff the rice and divide between 4 warmed bowls. Spoon the peanut chicken and vegetables on top. Get every last drop of the sauce. Eat!

Tonight the kids and I had leftover bean-tomato-zucchini-sausage "goulash" (our term for a stewed mish-mash) over rice. The goulash also included garlic, onions, and oregano sauteed in olive oil, and feta and olives on top.

DH came home late and had chicken noodle soup from a can.

Last night had: grilled ribs,mashed potatoes,green beans


Normally don't eat so many potatoes but my mom sent me like 10 lbs and I don't want them to go to waste. Emily

Tonight we are having a big bowl of Turkey chili with tons of hidden veggies from my puree day Monday, with a big greek salad and a crusty bun with butter, cheese sprinkled on top of the chili and avocado on mine.

Last night was burgers with more hidden veggies and cheese, sauteed broccoli and cauliflower, and a hidden veggie brownie.

Can you tell which book I bought recently? LOL

Sounds yummy! How has the fam reacted to the hidden veggies? Not at all, I hope? Ooh, and what veggie is in the brownie? How are they?

I did a veggie soup tonight. Onion & garlic in olive oil. Then carrots, celery, & a few chopped tomatoes thrown in with some veggie broth. I had some frorzen green beans that I chopped up and plopped in. I added some rosemary, salt & a little pepper. When it was hot and simmerring, I added a 1/2 cup of whole wheat elbow pasta.

For some of us, it was too hot, too thin, and so I stirred in a tiny amount of sour cream cool it off and give it some heft.

Soup is always tastier and thicker the next day.

I so rarely plan ahead.

I can't decide what the heck we are having. Baby is really unpredicatble lately in mood at dinner time so I'm trying to figure out if I want to make something simple at dinner time or prepare something more substantial at naptime and reheat at dinner.
