A variety of meals

I had every intention of blogging about each of these separately, and including tallies and all.  But life (sick child, work, triathlon training) gets in the way sometimes.  So, it's one big post while my sick kid naps on the couch.

Salad with deli turkey meat.

Fried organic potatoes and onion (fried in a little olive oil and coconut oil)


Carrot soup with ginger (DEELICIOUS - leftovers tonight).  Organic carrots are 79 cents a pound.  Add onion, garlic, ginger, stock, a pinch of sugar, salt, and pepper...can't go wrong with this one.

Whole wheat penne with roasted peppers, roasted cherry tomatoes, roasted garlic, plus a "sauce" of goat cheese, gouda, parmesan, and the cooking water.  Topped with avocado.  More leftovers tonight.

Smoothie-in-a-bowl: strawberries, banana, and milk, topped with Lovegrown foods granola that I won from Biz's giveaway.

Stir-fry: local free range beef (Rancho San Julian) with frozen veggie stir-fry mix from Costco.  Plus green onion, garlic, and ginger, a little sesame oil-soy sauce-rice vinegar.  And sriracha on top (natch!).  Over a bit of brown rice.
