This is sort of a brothy Minestrone with potatoes, carrots, green beans, corn, tomatoes, and cannelini beans. I was hoping my dad would eat some broth, but his tastebuds are geared toward oatmeal and ice cream right now. I also made a loaf of whole wheat bread (no pic).
Spaghetti Squash Casserole
I know you can’t see the spaghetti squash, but it’s mixed with tomatoes and Italian seasoning underneath some roasted turnips and steamed green beans. This turned out quite tasty and we all ate lots of it.
Indian Spiced Cabbage
An Ethiopian restaurant is right next to the hospital, and my sister and I had an opportunity to eat dinner there one night. We both especially loved the cabbage dish we ordered. I knew I couldn’t replicate it, knowing nothing about preparing Ethiopian food, but my Indian style cabbage was delicious. We ate lots of this too.
I also made Super Charge Me Cookies, which I have made before and absolutely love.
Chase gave up his usual share of the leftovers so my sister could take them on the plane and share some with my nephews when she gets back home.
It was wonderful to be back in my kitchen making healthful food to share with my family. I’m grateful that my mom and sister share my love of veggies and enjoy eating meatless meals of my vegan creations. I am anxious for my dad to get his appetite back so I can cook for him as well.
Thank you all again for your thoughts and well wishes.
