Meatless Monday: Guacammous


Last week sort of knocked me flat on my back, and I didn’t even have kids heading to school.  I did, on the other hand, start babysitting – and had 2 long (7:30-5:30) days of 5 kids under 5. Between recovering from the Long Weekend’s antics, babysitting, and trying to get my house in some sort of respectable shape (I ... Read More »

Meatless Monday: Spinachballs


Yes.  Spinachballs.  Like meatballs.  But instead of meat, spinach.  And you know what?  They’re really good.  My husband and I really liked them.  But our 2-year old toddler, who believes that he’s allergic to vegetables?  LOVED them.  I’m fairly certain that he ate about 1/2lb of spinach last night.  I’m not exaggerating. Yesterday during naptime, I was frantically searching my ... Read More »
