Here’s what we’ve been eating lately, going backwards from last night.

Tuesday: Grilled gluten sausages, grilled zuchinni & broccoli, beet/turnip/chard greens sauteed with garlic, sesame seeds, sesame oil & soy sauce

Monday: Zuchinni & cheddar cheese quesadillas, black beans, mango salsa

Sunday: grain, nut & bean burgers (made by grinding up Saturday’s leftovers with some egg & spelt flour) & salad

Saturday: couscous w/carrot & garbanzos & walnut-miso dressing; salad; sliced raw turnips & radishes

Friday: Pasta w/garlic, olive oil, cannelinni beans, chard

That seems to be about all I can remember, sad to say . . . There was some more grilling in there, with hamburgers for Baby Daddy and the Bug, some grilled yellow squash, lots more salads (thank you CSA lettuce).

For deserts we’ve been eating pineapple, oranges, watermelon.

The Bug is rejecting one of the few veggies he likes to eat, namely the glorious cherry tomato.  I hope it’s not a forever kind of thing.

Here’s what he’ll eat fairly reliably these days:

raisins, dates, dried apricots, walnuts, cashews, tofu chunks, apples, watermelon, canteloupe, pineapple, oranges, pears, most kinds of cheese, hamburger, fake & real sausage, yogurt concotion (see previous post), carrots, corn, crackers of all kinds, raw oats, olives, capers, fusilli pasta w/pesto, ravioli, pizza, hummus, applesauce, cheerios, muffins (I make some banana wheat germ & pumpkin millet ones he likes), peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, grains of all sorts — rice, quinoa, couscous, millet, etc., turkey meatloaf, quesadillas, bread.  And there’s a blueberry scone he usually gets on Sunday mornings with BD that he’s quite fond of.  What’s not to like?

You’ll notice this isn’t a huge list.  And there’s hardly a vegetable or green thing in sight.  And nary a legume, save for the soybeans that went into making the tofu.  The boy is not a vegetable-lover.  And he’s not adventerous.  Still, there’s enough on here that I only want to tear my hair out and scream once every few weeks.
