Today, I made two batches of homemade cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting. Gave away one of them. smile

I'm working on a beef pot pie made with leftover beef from my pot roast. The homemade mashed potatoes will be turned into croquettes.

Tonight, I made smothered pork chops with homemade mashed potatoes (again, I know, but my hubby is from Texas!) Also steamed broccoli and baked homemade cornbread. Everything from scratch! smile

Oh, I forgot the dirty rice! I made dirty rice with ground beef instead of the typical gizzards that make the rice "dirty." I am such a rice girl and did not want potatoes!

Lori-

My husband would love you.

Tonight, I baked a whole, organic, free-range, no antibiotics chicken stuffed with a whole onion (cut into fourths), 2 celery stalks, a bush of rosemary, a few stems of thyme, a bush of basil, and a few stems of sage, some celtic sea salt, and cracked pepper. I also roasted a stalk of brussel sprouts, an acorn squash, and steamed broccoli.

Yummy smiles all around.

MMMM, Yvonnie! That sounds divine! smile I can practically smell all those aromatics in the bird. I'll bet it was delectable.

Also, I love that you served three veggies. I really need to do that instead of all the starchy sides I tend to make.

Lori-

I too am impressed. It was divine intervention. I had gotten so frustrated with the choices of food my daughters have been preferring and/or asking for, that I stopped cooking for awhile.

Along the way we all began eating "[censored]".

Last week, I asked my spirit guides for a solution and this meal was one of my inspired designs. Last week there was a ham with broccoli, corn, and string beans. Monday it was chili and salad. Each one has been a winner.

For the record, breakfast has been fruit only, every other day; exchanging with homemade pancakes, biscuits, or oatmeal. Lunch has been full of salad, green smoothies, and leftovers (ham sandwiches on fresh pita, bagels, or croissants was the favored). I'm starting to feel really good about our choices and whole food cooking.

Boy, Yvonnie, you *are* inspiring! smile

I am going to cook healthier meals now. I *did* make kale chips twice now and bought more kale to make more. Too bad, hubby and son don't care for it, but my daughter and I find them positively addictive!

(P.S. I am going to post in your forum about your guides.)

Please keep posting what you cook to keep me inspired!

All of your meals sound heavenly indeed, Yvonnie! Can I come over for dinner?

Today I had leftover Quinoa and Spicy Peanut Chicken dish (see the recipe) for dinner, and made a yummy rice pudding with coconut milk and lemon for dessert. Mmmmm! Unfortunately it's not my own recipe, so I can't publish it, unless I can get permission. I'll work on that!

Hi Caitlin-

I love feeding others. Come on over.

Truth is, I am moving more toward a mostly raw diet, after fighting this pull for so long. That said, I am not ready to convert anyone else so, I must still provide meals that are as nourishing as possible for my loved ones.

Have you read Nourishing Traditions? I'll bet you have. I love the comfort of cooking; it centers me and it brings me a feeling of love. So, I put a lot of loving energy into my cooking.

Thanks, Yvonnie!

I'll check out the book. Sounds a good title, anyhow.

Yes, raw diets are not for everyone. According to my dosha, in the Aurveydic tradition, raw foods are too cooling for my system, and several healers have urged me away from even raw salad (they say to wilt it. I still eat salads raw, though)! I also learned that raw foods are very hard on the digestive system, so I encourage people to have balance in their diets, not all or nothing for one plan or another.

Have fun!

Oh, last night I went out to dinner with a friend. Guess where he wanted to eat? Barbecue. LOL.

Tonight, I made some Mexican beef and bean chimichangas topped with chili sauce and cheese, zucchini and Spanish rice.

But I'm beginning to feel sheepish announcing my unhealthy menus here. frown

On a good note, I made two more batches of fresh kale chips. They are *so* addictive!
