Love that song! Also love the 'Mamas and The Papas!' If I had some sort of electronic listening device, it would be filled with their songs! Monday isn't as grim as it used to be now that I have my solo grocery excursions though! Today I may even get to go with my husband, he has the day off!!! Mid-day date! Hooray! I am prepared with my list of groceries for this week's menu! I have not been very good about getting to all of my planned meals nor have I been very good about fixing them when they are scheduled. I decided it might be easier to have seven meals listed, buy the ingredients, then pick from the list as I see fit! We'll see if this works better?!?
1. Collard Wraps and Chia Chili Cheese Dip! (major hit! Kudos to the the Fitnessista)
2. Raw Pancakes ~ we love these! We used to have them every Sunday morning before church but now we can't seem to get up early enough. I missed them, we are looking forward to this one! It's a recipe from my Ani Phyo book!
3. Salsa Al Pomodoro Maccheroni! Sounds fancy doesn't it?!? Hehe, it's just macaroni and tomato sauce! I am going to give you the recipe this week....another creation of mine! Hooray!
4. Save the Chicks Pate, a raw dish again from my Ani Phyo book!
5. Marinated Mushrooms and Balsamic Asparagus
6. Sesame Green Beans and Baked Sweet Potatoes
7. I am going to recreate the dish I had Saturday at Carrabba's. They have a gluten free menu. They mix the salads in a separate bowl to try and eliminate cross contamination! I had the Insalata Fiorucci. It was really good! Of course, you know me and my love affair with artichokes...so I am going to make my own version here at home. I haven't decided what to call it yet!
That makes 4 raw meals, 1 mostly raw meal and 2 cooked! I am really looking forward to our food this week. I hope I am able to get to everything!
The Sesame Green Beans are fantastic! We first had them at my MIL's house for Thanksgiving and I had to have the recipe! So good!
1 pound fresh green beans, washed and ends snapped
1 Tbs sesame seeds
1 Tbs olive oil
1/4 cup vegetable broth. We use Pacific which has low sodium and is GF!
*Saute green beans and sesame seeds in olive oil until sesame seeds are lightly toasted ~about 5 minutes. Add veggie broth and simmer until liquid is mostly absorbed ~ about 10 minutes! I like my green beans to retain their 'green' ....so I never cook mine quite as long! Give it a try, you will love them!
Do you love 'The Mamas and The Papas?'
