Creativity in the Kitchen

Dr.O' gave up meat for Lent again this year, which makes our meal planning interesting. I am continuing to eat lean poultry, and so are the kids. Dr. O' has agreed to do the special shopping and much of the prep for his dietary committment, which may again become a long-term thing. We made a menu yesterday for the next two weeks, and I'm pretty excited about it!

Black Bean Burgers
Baked Ziti with Ricotta
Portabello Mushroom Sandwich
Cilantro and Hummus Sandwich (much like the Mediterranean Sandwich from Panera)
Lentil Soup
Vegetable Barley Soup
Curry simmer sauce over basmati rice with chickpeas
Falaffel and cucumber sauce

  1. Yesterday, Lohn and I just made a long list of meals that are heart healthy. We are trying to cut back on meats and saturated fat and cholesterol. It IS a good feeling to have a list of foods to choose from. I am excited to go grocery shopping for this week!
