The Weekly Dish

Ok, so this isn't food, but I couldn't resist showing the picture of my sweet hubby snuggling my sick little man.....annnnd it is the reason I missed a recipe this week, so we will pretend it's fitting. ;)
This week I will make up for some of the lost time from last week. Having a sick kid kinda puts a wrench in the culinary creativity. After doing this blog for a few weeks now, I have realized I finally found my hobby. Andy has asked me a number of times what my hobby is and I never have had a good answer for it. Now, I do. I love this! I love finding ways to make my food healthy but tasty. You all know what I am talking about. When you think of taking the oil, white flour and sugar out of things you instantly thing BLAH! In the past, that is how healthy tasted. However, people are getting more serious about what they put in their bodies and aren't willing to eat pine cones and grass clippings for dinner! (That is what my dad calls healthy food lol...pine cones and grass clippings) :) Thank you to those of you who are sending me recipes to modify to make them healthier or tastier. I really enjoy this! If you have a recipe you want me to modify, email me I will do my best to incorporate it into the next weeks blog. This week I will be doing another recipe from Jill and a banana bread recipe Brittany gave me to modify. Next week I will be modifying Nichole's Pumpkin Whoopie Pie recipe....YUUUMMM! So, with no further adue (How in the world do you spell adue? It didn't even come up on spell check lol.) here is this weeks menu.

Quinoa and black beans
Roasted eggplant dip (Thanks Binky for reminding me to make this!)
Almond Chinese chicken (This was suppose to be made last week)
Garlic and rosemary chicken
Brit's banana bread
