I am so blessed. A surprise drop in from good friends, lots of music, lots of play, and now a lovely snow falling in a way that makes me think we might score an unanticipated weekend recovery day with sledding tomorrow. Yay! Bring on the snow gear! Bring on the hot chocolate! Bring on the hot food! There is little better in winter than a bona fide meteorological excuse for eating comfort food. And so we shall proceed this week. Light and refreshing? No – that’s not what we’re shooting for. We want warm, belly filling, and homey.
Monday: Mulligatawny Soup, served with brown rice, salad, and some cooling plain yogurt for the kids
Tuesday: Mushroom Stroganoff over whole wheat noodles (from the The Engine 2 Diet, green salad, wilted mediterranean kale
Thursday: Rockin’ Gluten Free Falafel, whole wheat pitas, sandwich veggies, carrot fries, green salad
Friday: Homemade Pizza, cut veggies
Saturday: Cauliflower Steaks, quinoa, sautéed green beans, salad
Sunday: Homemade Pasta
Lunchbox Treats: Almond Lemon Jots
Adult Lunches: Picadillo
Yay! A week’s worth of comforting belly warming food and a snow covered landscape to look at while I eat. I hope your meteorological desires are being met and that you are enjoying a warm bowl of yum! Eat well, be well friends!
