This week we have a sub for the co-op. Actually, she will be subbing for the next 4-6 weeks. On Monday, she brought over curried lentils with a side of green beans, a beet and carrot salad. And for a treat, dark chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. The lentils were delicious. They had pototoes in them as well. The cookies, heaven in my mouth. What’s not to like?
In “Eating Around the World” news, thanks to the co-op this week, we visited two more countries, Tunisia and India. Tuesday we were delivered a Tunisian couscous dish with brussels wraps on the side. The couscous had potatoes, chickpeas, onions and bell peppers. So good. The recipe comes from Vegan Fire and Spice. The wraps were my favorite. They were full of sweet potatoes and a cilantro lime dressing. So good.
For my co-op meal, I made Indian food. I made curry tofu, with tamarind lentils and samosa stuffed potatoes. The meal was a little more work than I would have preferred. But it was so worth it. Very tasty. All three recipes came from Veganomicon. And the cost to feed everyone was around $21. Not to bad. Thankfully the store sells organic potatoes in a bag. So, that helped to keep the cost low. It was a very satisfying meal.
Well, the 1/2 marathon is this Sunday. I am excited. Josh and the boys are coming along and the weather is supposed to be perfect. As a treat we are going to the Vegan Bakesale for Haiti after the race. A well deserved prize for completing a 1/2 marathon and it is for a good cause. The place where it is being held is still under discussion. But if it is at a particular bookstore, the race my be going past it, so I might grab some goodies while running by. That would be kind of funny. By the way, if you are able to, please donate to the Red Cross. The people of Haiti really need some help right now. Any amount will do. And please remember all the families in your prayers.
I am off to Arthur’s dance class, then to the store. We are making cupcakes and cookies for Arthur’s Campfire Kids group tomorrow. They are doing a lesson about insects. So, we are going to have the kids decorate cupcakes to make ladybugs and cookies to make spiders. Fun! I will post pictures of all the bug goodness later.
Hope everyone has a lovely day.
peas and love….
Krys and the boys
