Something For Everyone
I hope that everyone is having a great week. As a reminder, it is National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. For more information, please be sure to visit the official NEDA website.
The highlight of my week so far has been discovering this at Earth Fare.
A Blueberry Muffin Larabar! I’ve been absolutely dying to get my hands on one since they were released.
Believe it or not, I haven’t gobbled this baby up yet. I am purposely saving it for tomorrow as my special “Congratulations, you’re finally done with your job” treat.
Last night, I made quesadillas for Michael and a giant salad for me. I skipped out on the quesadillas since I cannot eat cheese.
Quesadillas without cheese are like Snooki without her poof.
I’ve been making these quesadillas for awhile now, and Michael loves them.
Since I follow the recipe exactly without modifications, you can check it out here.
We also had some of my yummy guacamole with tortilla chips.
My dinner consisted of romaine lettuce, hard boiled egg, avocado slices, mushrooms, broccoli, black beans, tomato, sweet potato, and onions.
It is basically a recipe for severe gas and bloating (though somehow Emma was the only gassy living being in our household last night).
After dinner, we watched American Idol. Let me just state that I was less than pleased because the mean boy who kicked Jacee out of his group during Hollywood week sang a Lionel Richie song! Mean people shouldn’t be allowed to sing “Hello”, and if I ruled the world, I’d make that a rule.
Back on the subject of adapting recipes to suit everyone’s dietary needs/preferences/beliefs, I need your help!
I’m going to my in-law’s house for dinner next weekend, and my MIL is stressing out about what to make for dinner. You see, the guest list includes a vegetarian, a lactose intolerant Lionel Richie fan, and southern food loving men.
Can you guess which one I am? 😉
Michael’s cousin Dawn (who is the vegetarian on the guest list) and I offered to come up with something that everyone can eat. One of the ideas that we came up with was a taco bar with meat, cheese, and veggie choices. Another option is lots of vegetables (without cheese), some kind of meat, and a meatless patty for Dawn.
Can anyone offer any other suggestions? I’d love to hear them all!
Have a wonderful wonderful day!
