Thank you, my friend from Belgium! Your encouraging words left a big bright spot in my day! I am wrestling with what all families experience at one time or another. It's time for me to expand my roles and take on even more responsibility. Or, it's time for my husband to redefine his roles as our family grows and evolves. In the end, I suspect we will both have to adapt and compromise!
I have been able to prepare meals which encompass all four traditional food groups. We had leftover venision sausage, chicken sausage, pumpkin bread, grapefruit, bannanas and plums for breakfast. Drinks included healthy soda for the kids (prune juice, apple juice and carbonated water - good for both an O secretor and an A non secretor). Mom, of course, starts the day with lemon water and then switches to coffee after the meal.
Lunch today included more of the same leftovers with new fruit thrown in (grapes and leftover grapefruit.) Dinner will include the last of the meat along with sauteed onion and collard greens. Dad won't go for that so I will ask him what kind of veggie he might like. We also have some gala apples that would work with the collard greens, so I will slice those up.
My experiment for tomorrow will be preparing my rice noodles, northern beans and soy sauce. Very simple, but I don't know what to do with white northern beans. I will, however, know what to do with them by the end of the week, because I have already cooked a week's worth in my crockpot! Take care everyone.
