~CC and I have been perusing Food Network and Allrecipes.com for healthy, tasty recipes. Sometimes it seems you have to sacrifice taste for lower calories and fat. So far though we have been really fortunate with the recipes we've found.
~Sunday evening I found a couple of recipes I wanted to try out. I bought lentil beans, heard they are really good for you. I found a recipe for Lentil Bean Rice Pilaf and Tarragon Trout. For the rice I sauteed fresh carrots, celery, garlic cloves (3) and one whole onion in olive oil.
After the vegetables soften I added in my lentils and vegetable broth. You will need to salt this some as the recipe doesn't call for any salt.
I do think the pilaf was a bit heavy for this dinner. The trout would have better been paired with a salad but it was great nonetheless.
~~~~~~Today was class and then helping Papa Bear. I didn't cook but we picked up Koobideh Kebob from Pasha. My goodness, words cannot describe how wonderful that was. All of Lena's books for her homeschool came in today. There were boxes everywhere! She was sent a globe, jump rope, tambourine, kick ball and books galore! She was so excited to finally get on a steady schedule. I am so happy she is excited. I studied for about two and a half hours and needed to rest....so here I am blogging!
~Tomorrow I don't want to do anything but stay in and clean house. My cleaning has been neglected since I've been going to school and helping Lena with hers. The house is not in horrible shape but it's not in tip top shape. The floors need mopping, clothes need to be put up, the winter mantle needs to come down...Just little things that add up.
