After two weeks of non-stop rain (or so it seemed), summer weather has come with a vengeance to the Deep South. But we didn't let it stop us from getting out and enjoying some mini-golf at Noccalula Falls on Saturday. We had a lovely day of family fun, in spite of the heat.
We're starting with baby steps, like switching out whole wheat flour for white flour, whole wheat pasta for regular pasta, that kind of thing. We've also added more veggies and fruits to our meals and snacks. I even got Charles to go with me to the farmer's market last week - early, on a Saturday morning! See, baby steps!
So here's what I've got on the menu:
Quinoa and kale gratin, roasted garlic cauliflower
Italian sausage sandwiches on whole wheat buns, homemade fries
Chicken and dumplings, mashed potatoes
Panko crusted salmon, oven roasted zucchini
Swedish meatballs, whole wheat noodles
Grilled steak, grilled veggies (zucchini, peppers, eggplant, onions)
