Cyndee, this meatloaf recipe kicks butt!

i use quinoa instead of the bread crumbs of rice. and i know fish sauce is a weird ingredient, but it is really amazing. and i don''t use butter or ghee because of Vincent's allergy, so i use bacon fat.

This thread is awesome! Please keep it up! I am definitely getting inspiration from it. This has been a really off week for us. Dh did the grocery shopping, which means he bought all junk. Yesterday solidified why I don't like junk though. Dh served dino chicken nuggets and Doritos for lunch. Isaid "wow, mothing like junk food for lunch!" He said, "well yeahx the chips aren't healthy but at least the chicken is!" we have very different opinionsbof what healthy is. Lol so then we had olive garden for dinner. Yum. And today I wake up super swollen all over, nauseous, and tired. So I am going to dragmmyself to the grocery store and remedy this.

Also, jac, I wanted to ask about that root beer recipe you linked to. It looks awesome! Do you think all the herbs are safe in pregnancy though? What about potential alcohol content from the fermentation process?

i am not certain on the herbs, but i'd say the amount is small enough that you would be fine. the alcohol would be miniscule....like an alcoholic beer.

i made tacos tonight...very Irish, i know!
local grassfed beef, refried beans, avocado, shredded cabot cheese, organic romaine, salsa, and sprouted corn tortillas.

We'll be having an egg white quiche with onion, spinach, kale, chard, and basil. I might be nice and serve some tater tots.

Tomorrow night will be lentil and brown rice loaf, mashed potatoes, veggie gravy, and probably some sort of salad.

tonight is brussel sprouts, baked in the oven with garlic, bacon, and maple syrup; and local amish chicken thighs breaded with almond meal and pan fried in pastured lard.

DH's cholesterol is through the roof. I usually do one or two whole eggs (more flavor, nutrients, etc), but the rest are just whites. We've drastically reduced his cholesterol intake and are hoping to get him off cholesterol meds soon.

For lunch,. London chose raw kale, cabbage, carrots, hazelnuts, and almonds. For dinner, I'm making our belated st. Paddy's day meal of corned beef and cabbage. I'm also serving Irish soda bread from whole foods. We stayed late at the pool yesterday and ran out of time so I'm making it today.

Edited because we were all too full to eat any bread. The meal was delicious though. Corned beef, cabbage, red potatoes, parsley, and carrots. I am so full!

I skipped the quiche tonight in favor of something different. I kind of made it up and it was delicious!

2 Tbsp butter
1 onion, diced
1 Tbsp minced garlic
2 carrots, chopped
1 tsp dried parsley
2 chicken sausages, sliced into rounds
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1 1/2 cups cut spaghetti, uncooked
1 big handful spinach, chiffonade
3 cups vegetable stock
1 cup peas, thawed
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Sauté together butter, onion, garlic, carrots and parsley until onions soften. Add sausage and bell pepper; sauté another couple of minutes. Stir in pasta and spinach. Sauté 1-2 more minutes. Stir in stock. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer about 8 minutes until pasta is cooked. Fold in peas and cheese.

Tonight I made grilled chicken and pineapple sandwiches with basil leaves and fresh lime juice. I grilled some baby portobella mushrooms for the side. It was delicious!

I made mashers with organic russet potatoes, with roast beef leftovers from the christening from our neighbors and steamed corn.

Wow!"28 lbs of beef! How long will it take you to eat all that?

I tried another new recipe tonight that was ridiculously easy and super yummy. Iade avocado and black bean tacos in corn tortillas, topped with shredded kale, tomatoes, and sunflower seeds. I mashed the avocado with fresh garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper. Everything was organic too!

Jac, thank you so much for your inspiration! I feel like we are eating healthier and yummier food this week and I have been cooking every day. It feels totally natural too, like I've found our rhythm.

the meat will last a while, i'm sure. the cheapest way to get grass fed is to buy in bulk. we did it last summer and it was totally worth it.

i'm glad i could help inspire you in some way. sunflower seeds on tacos sounds delicious!!

we went to my MIL's house last night and she made tacos too. they were gross.
