Monday: Veggie-cheese pie
(This one started off as a ‘galette’, has been downgraded to ‘pie’. Heh. Same thing happened to spanakopita: same dish in pie shell instead of phyllo, sooo much easier to prepare! And way fewer calories. (The kids don’t care about that last one, but I do!))
Tuesday: Veggie burgers, salad.
(The salad is arugula with strawberries, walnuts and balsamic vinegar. Very simply, truly delicious, but I suspect the arugula won’t be an immediate hit. Tip: NEVER let a presupposition like this prevent you from serving something to small children! There are two reasons for this: 1) They might surprise you and love it. You never know! 2) In time, with repeated exposures, children will accept food they previously rejected. Really! Low-key, matter-of-fact persistence pays off.)
Wednesday: Chicken basil coconut curry, black bean-couscous salad
(This is a mild coconut curry. They’ve loved it in the past, I expect they’ll love it this week. Soooo good.)
Thursday: Black bean soup, cornbread, salad
Friday: Char sui pork, lentil-beet salad
