Long Grain Rice and Tri-Colored Quinoa packed with Veggie Goodness—￼
Tomatoes, Shredded Carrots, Onion, Celery, Orange & Yellow Mini
Bell Peppers. This was an easy throw-together. Added all ingredients to
Rice Maker along with enough water to reach an inch above the contents.
Cooked for 45 minutes. (I set timer.) After cooking added spices including
Cumin, Dried Mustard, Basil, Pepper, Garlic. I‘ve made enough for
several meals. Will variously add beans or Lentil/Oat Loaf;
make Wrap with Whole Grain Flour Tortillas.
“Fried” Green Tomatoes
Lucky me! Someone blessed me with several green tomatoes.
I sliced and battered with combination of : potato flour, flax seeds, Chia Seeds,
Oregano, Garlic, Basil, Black Pepper; dipped in low-sodium V8 juice.
Cooked in iron skillet along with
V8 Juice and Portobello Mushroom.
Simmered more than fried.
Crockpot Marinated Soy Curls, Portobello Mushroom

Several Sliced Brussel Spouts with:
1 TBSP Maple Syrup
Juice of 1/2 Lemon

Add, 3 TBSP of Tomato-Basil Sauce

Continue cooking on HIGH about 1 1/2 hours.
My energy waxes and wanes so I’ve learned to maximize the times energy is better. I’m marinating Brussel Spouts and Napa Cabbage; and making barbecued Soy Curls; and Marinating Portobello Mushroom Slices, Onions, and Carrots. Good, nutritious eating to come.
This was supposed to be Braided Challah Bread.
I ran out of energy, so the result is SIMPLY DELicIOUS Bread,￼
soft in center and crispy on outside. The whole truth is I thought
I was making the Cranberry Banana bread, I simply luv.
Without my knowing, the cookbook pages fliped and because
both recipes call for Banana, I didn’t notice I was making
Challah Bread until I was a third way through the ingredients.
It has been a challenging day
with even routine activities being awfully difficult. But, there’s warm bread to feast on.
All is well!

(Onion, Yellow Squash, Mushrooms, Kale). Then added some cooked Ramen Noodles
to further please my taste buds. (Insert smile)
