I totally hear you! I think I've eaten my weight in sourdough french bread, brie, and strawberries this week. Hello growth spurt!

This is such a yummy thread to read through. We're about to head out and about to do our food gathering for the week, and I've been jotting down little extras nonstop since opening this thread. :

Coconut oatmeal

1 and 1/2 cups oats
4 cups liquid - I used 1 cup water, 1 cup yogurt whay and a can of coconut milk
1 mashed banana
scoop of coconut oil
dried fruit - we did raisins and blueberries

Place all in crockpot and put on low overnight.
I did find I had to turn this off by 1 AM or so as I smelled it and checked it and it was just starting to burn around the edges. So we just reheated it in the AM. Using 2 cups water and 2 cups yogurt has worked well for us tho.

It's yummy! Coconut milk, lemongrass, lemon juice and peel, fresh grated ginger, garlic, minced jalapeno, pinch tumeric..simmer sauce until reduced and removed lemongrass with a slotted spoon. Add cubed salmon, simmer until done and add fresh chopped cilantro.

I also love the Salmon in Coconut Milk and Lemongrass Sauce in Full Moon Feast.

Happily married to DH for 6 years, in process to foster-adopt 3 children DD4, DS3 and DS2. We may be bringing half brother age 9 one day as well! We are not infertile, we just have decided that since there are precious children who need homes there is no need for us to have biological children.

um, no. . but I can tell you what I did!

cut up 4-6 slices of bacon (the thick kind is great)
brown in a large pot
when the fat starts to come off them, add the 2 diced parsnips
cook until parnsips are golden brown
add 1 med onion, diced and 1T butter
when onion is starting to brown add
1.5 cups dupuy, brown or beluga lentils (soaked in water/whey for a few hours)
and 1 large or 2 small firm red apples, peeled and in small chunks
cover with water or stock - 3-4" over
salt to taste
1/2 T dried dill (or other herbs)
simmer 15-20 min
add 1 cup soaked brown rice (making sure there is still about 1" of liquid covering everything)
bring to a boil, reduce to low, cover and *don't stir* for 30 minutes (check to make sure it's not totally drying out and sticking though).

nutty, sweet-salty, creamy goodness!

Pleas share the lentil soup recipe!

When you cook nettles are they fresh or dry nettles?

Lunch was quiznos...

Whereabouts do you buy your salmon? I would like to start including more of it in our diets, but I'm not sure where to find a clean source that doesn't completely break the bank (too much anyways).

b- organic potatoes from farmer's market, slathered with butter and salt and scrambled eggs. organic/fairtrade coffee with cream
snack- strawberries we picked yesterday
l- leftover cabbage/beef stew from yesterday. Most likely a piece of ezekiel toast with it, buttered. I will add some too-salty sauerkraut from 3 months ago to season.
snacks- maybe yogurt, apples, tea
d- roast chicken. cauliflower with a sort of olive tapenade (new recipe from our csa) and a salad with most likely a raw wine vinegar-flax-walnut oil dressing, leftover feta, onions, radishes, crispy almonds

I've only had breakfast so far, so this is what I plan to have today- looking in our fridge.

Due with number 5 in August. We do all that crunchy stuff.

YUM!! reading this thread is making me drool. it's pretty amazing to read about all this wonderful food y'all have been eating. we've been gone this weekend so, although we ate delicious food, much wasn't really tf. although we did have a locally and sustainably raised leg of lamb that was barbecued! and this amazing creamy strawberry mousse thing-- can't wait to try it w/ raw cream. and lots of pastured eggs, i guess. we had quinoa and veggies for lunch today with lots of homegrown veggies. so, i guess we did pretty well, considering. we are so blessed with good food.

Thanks for all the inspiration! i want to eat TF but have been in a total slump. i'd love some of your recipes, if you care to post them. thanks!!
Lentil soup recipe that everyone in our family loves is:
2 carrots, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
Saute in butter until soft and fragrant in large soup pot
Add about 4c stock, 1c dried tomatoes (or equivalent), 2 cups soaked brown or green lentils and 2 bay leaves (If I have a parmesan rind, that is always great to throw in while it cooks).
Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer about 1 hour. Remove bay leaves, season accordingly.
We puree it slightly with a hand blender, then add sausage and kale and let it simmer for about another 15 minutes. We grate fresh parmesan regg. on top. So good.

This is really fun seeing what everyone is eating. I am going to have to go back and re-read and try to make some of it...

Ok, so today....

Breakfast - Milkshake with raw milk, raw egg, honey, 2 bananas, cinnamon and nutmeg grated on top, Oh and we added cream to it so with that and the extra banana it was super creamy. Dd also had a fruit leather.

Lunch - custard made with eggs, coconut milk, maple syrup, cinnamon and nutmeg (I guess it was a "let's eat creamy things" day)

Snack - a newman's own sandwich cookie - darn those things being in the house

Dinner -

Garlic soup - about 5 cloves sauteed garlic in butter (tho for this I usually use olive oil. I'm out of olive oil tho), jar of beef stock, jar of water, rapunzal brand buillion, diced carrots, some fresh parsley, pepper and some barley

Grilled Cheese made with fresh farmer's cheese (from pastured cows, but it is pasturized cheese - but that's ok for grilled cheese) on sourdough bread with lots of fresh bright yellow spring butter

Mixed Greens (spinach, chard, arugula) steamed over 4 or 5 cloves of sauteed garlic, sauteed in butter

DD also had a few bites of leftover meat from sloppy joes, an orange and some more custard

We also always have our daily "fishy treats" as dd calls them
