With all the medical crap going on around here, Cool and I have been thinking alot about diet.  Actually, I have been thinking alot about diet, Cool has been putting up with my ramblings.  BUT, we have agreed on a plan.  That is amazing to say the least.  Our plan is to eat a vegetarian diet during the week and eat meat for 2 meals on the weekend.  Hopefully with the meat on the weekends he won't crave meat too much and with the vegetarian diet we can get things managable and possibly off all the meds.

We started this week.  It has been going "ok" as I have a 13 year old who loves meat but the kids love being able to pick the foods.  We went through recipes online today and they picked our next two meals both containing tofu.  I am not sure how I feel about that but I gladly bought the ingredients. 

It is scary changing things the way we have but also freeing in a way.  I think with this new way our garden will be a fantastic thing this summer.  If it ever warms up that is.

 
 

While going through the scrap paper my mom sent over I found this treasure of a recipe.  It is actually one of our family favorites.  One that I haven't made in like forever.  I can thank Nanc for this since she is the person who orginally gave it to me.

Mustard Dip

16 ounces sour cream
16 ounces yellow mustart
16 ounces Helmans mayo
1 double package Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing
1 cup sugar
1/2 small onion, minced
6 heaping teaspoons horseradish

Mix all ingredients together.  Let sit overnight in fridge before serving.  Keeps for a long time and makes alot.  This is great as dip for hard and soft pretzels and on sandwiches in place of mayo.

Oh yum!  I made this for lunch today.  It was a big hit amongst the tribe.

Chicken Quesadillas

About 1 tbs olive oil
1 medium onion diced
about 1 ½  tsp minced garlic
1 chicken breast cooked and chopped
Mexican Fiesta Seasoning
Flour tortillas
Co-Jack shredded cheese
Cooking spray

In a skillet heat the olive oil.  Saute onion and garlic in the oil until almost clear.  Add chicken and heat until hot.  Set aside with lid on pan

Over medium heat in a nonstick skillet that has been sprayed, place 1 tortilla.  Sprinkle about ¼ cup cheese over top.  Add about ½ cup chicken mixture.  Sprinkle with another ¼ cup cheese.  Heat for 3 minutes.  Flip and heat for another 3 minutes.  It should be golden brown and crispy.

Serve with sour cream and salsa with refried beans on the side.
