My mom is a great cook. Last night she made a vegan stew. Tonight for dinner she made VeganYumYum’s Rustic Bread & Eggplant Lasagna.
This was the best meal I’ve had in a while. It was fantastic. The flavors blended perfectly; the tomatoes were sweet and delicious; the bread crumbs were crispy; the eggplant was superb. The whole family loved it. She made one completely vegan…
And one with cheese…
My dad, brother, and sister have all raved about this lasagna to me. Now I know what they’re talking about. These disappeared in about 20 minutes.
My mom requested that I make my massaged kale salad (kale, olive oil, sea salt, lemon juice) and I topped it with some thinly sliced onions. Everyone loved this too! I was really happy. They were kind of doubtful about the kale but now I’ve converted them to be kale lovers.
I had a very yummy homey breakfast today. It was huge!
- 1/4 cup (a little more) quick cooking oats (to use them up)
- 1/4 cup farina (suggested serving size is 3 tablespoons)
- <1 cup water
- <1 cup almond milk (sweetened)
- orange extract
- dash of salt
- toppings: whole milk, honey, agave nectar
I’ve been really into simple big bowls of oats with minimal toppings. I love my breakfast grains. I got into the habit of simple bowls while driving across the country. Almost every morning I had this at Denny’s (minus the fruit; that was Bobby’s):
A big bowl of oats topped with brown sugar, milk, and sometimes a little bit of butter.
Today and yesterday for exercise Bobby, Julia, and I walked to Kunkel Park and played on the swings.
It’s about 3 miles roundtrip. Swinging is also a great ab workout. No wonder (many) kids stay fit so easily.
What did you do for fun when you were little? I loved climbing things and I was always scaring my parents. I (almost) never got hurt though.
