We are two sisters that feed our families almost completely vegetarian. With 5 children aged 2 to 12 years between the two of us, we have had the joy and pain of experimenting. We plan to Blog 365 simple and kid approved meals. Most will be made-from-scratch but we will also share what we do when eating out. It may take more than 365 days to accomplish this but we hope you'll check back often, try our suggestions and give us your feedback.


71. Southwest Omelet and Blackberry Breakfast Dessert

If you don't know how to make an omelet ask a friend. I made this yesterday it was very refreshing.

Inside: feta cheese
spinach (chopped)
seasoned with adobo
On top: avocado slices

Serve for dessert:
small bowl of blackberries with (small) vanilla yogurt scoop and drizzled agave

70. Bruschetta

2 heirloom tomatoes diced
3 garlic cloves minced
2 sprigs oregano
1 sprig rosemary
1/2 tsp dried basil
about 15 chopped kalamata olives
salt and pepper to taste

Allow to marinate about an hour. I served on toasted french bread brushed with olive oil, (looks like an open faced sandwich when done). Top with bruschetta and a small sprinkling of mozzarella or parmesan cheese. Put under broiler until cheese is melted and serve with soup or salad for a complete meal, or alone for a small lunch.

69. Garlic Sauce

I made a veggie stir fry tonight and tried to mimic a garlic sauce that the Chinese take out place by my parents house makes. I got close and wanted to share with you. The problem is I wasn't fully paying attention to my creation so if you try this it is with some risk!

6 cloves garlic thinly sliced (lightly brown with veggies)

when veggies are almost done add:
1/4 cup agave nectar
2-3 shakes red pepper flakes
1/8 tsp chinese five spice
2 Tbs hoisin sauce
salt to taste
garlic powder to taste
