The sickness struck our home again. Ever since Boogie started school, we have encountered all kinds of germs. The positive, we are building some strong immnune systems.
Sunday, we planted some dinosaur kale seeds, trimmed back the giant dill plant, and planted 3 types of onions: Southern Belle red onion, Sweet 1015 onions, and Granax onions (they claim to be as sweet as an apple).
Josh made 2 batches of tortillas for our taco dinner that night. One batch went into the freezer, and the other for our tacos. The tacos we made were lentil, greens, and soyrizo, topped with a nutritional yeast sauce, and salsa. I served the tortillas with spanish style rice, and refried beans, never from a can.

Speaking of freezer, I made Asian dumplings. I filled them with tofu, pickled ginger, miso, asian cabbage from the garden, mushrooms, and carrots. We ate the dumplings later in the week with stir fried garden fresh peas.

Monday I was sick, as was our 4 year old Little Bear. Josh stayed home and took care of us. Boogie is better, and it hit me and the youngest. Kindergarten has brought us all kinds of germs. It is a petri dish. That being said, we had leftovers Monday night. Thank goodness for leftovers.
Tuesday, we had leftovers again. Not by choice. I called Josh, and asked him to come home because I had progressively gotten worse. Well, a trip to the doctor, and a flu test. I have the flu. Type A flu to be exact, the worse out of all 3 different types of flu. Thankfully, Josh has sick time, so he is playing Mr. Mum so I can rest, and the boys are well cared for.
He stayed home with me until Friday, and finally went back to work. I was still under the weather, so the youngest and I watched movies, and relaxed. My sweet Boogie was given a ride home from school Friday. He was invited to a playdate to hang out with his two best friends. He told them he couldn't play, he wanted to go home and check on his mommy. Best kid ever.
Saturday, I cooked something for the first time since last Sunday. Josh was so happy. I made Mongolian BBQ tofu over rice with garden fresh peas, and served them with a side of homemade pot stickers, and dipping sauce.

For dinner Saturday night, we had a pumpkin black bean stew. I had a sugar pumpkin sitting on the counter that I needed to use. I chopped it, and roasted it, along side some lovely cherry tomatoes we had in our fall garden. I added black beans, onion, garlic, broth, tomato sauce, and spices. It was tasty, and hearty.

This morning, Sunday morning, my guys requested scones for breakfast. So, I made proper Scottish oat scones. Tasty, and delicious.

I went grocery shopping today. Drum roll please. We spent: $41.72
Tonite we had leftovers. No wasting food around here.
Oh, and last but not least, a garden update. I harvested a head of broccoli a while back, and was happy to see the broccoli plant is producing three more heads. The cauliflower will be ready to harvest in a few days, and another cauliflower is producing a small head. The greens are looking great, and I can see some tiny carrot tops in the garden. I love it.
Hope you have a lovely evening.
peas and love....
Krys and the boys
