Andy found something really funny in one of our old cookbooks the other day. Check out the note I made:
If anything, it should say — “Add vegetable.”
This is actually a really good cookbook — weeknight meals by Deborah Madison, who is an amazing cook and writer — which we hardly use anymore because it’s vegetarian and falling apart from constant use. We were flipping through it and there are several things in it that we would still eat. Sometimes I just need to shake things up.
I actually highly recommend Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, because many of the recipes are primal, and you just have to add meat. A home run dinner — EVERY time.
I have to admit that my son constantly amazes me everyday, (My daughter, too.) But with my son, it’s food that particularly amazes me.
Here is a child who will devour all of the meat on the table if left to his own devices. Burger patties are his favorites but pork cutlets and pork chops are right up there. But what made us laugh lately is his insistence on licking the spatula that we use to scrape out the coconut milk. Unsweetened coconut milk.
He loves it.
This past week, I made my first milk drop at the Mothers Milk Bank. I hadn’t quite collected the initial 150oz, but apparently supplies are really low, and they needed me to bring in the milk ASAP. Demand is high for milk, so I was happy to oblige. I picked up new bottles and I’m ready to collect more. (For more on why I started, see my post about healthy milk.)
It feels really good to help out all of those babies.
