Rawchos? Raw nachos? Apple nachos? Nachos without cheese? Huh? My thoughts exactly until one year ago when I through together poorly sliced apples, sunflower seed butter and chocolate syrup. Which, I might add is a totally acceptable way to make apple nachos unless you really want to create a super healthy version that you can stash away in your virtual recipe “box” for years to come.
First, let me start by saying that I don’t have and never had an aversion to foods based on color alone. I haven’t met a food that I don’t like period. It’s similar to the way that I view movies. Even if the movie is not entertaining and basically no good I still sit through the entirety for the experience. So, yes I have been known to eat some pretty random foods that I will likely not eat again but I did at least try them.
Yes, I am the mom that fed my babies and had to have a bit of whatever they were having…just to taste it. I was also that 3 foot tall toddler that stood by my grandpa’s chair at the dinner table basically begging for a bite of what he was having. LOL!
Last week I spent a day at Avalon, an outdoor entertainment, dining and shopping experience that is so well planted right off the freeway that it doesn’t feel like you are a shopping center in the city. It’s like a sweet neighborhood with beautifully manicured lawns, landscaping and curved sidewalks with smiling faces and neighborly conversation it as a place we visit frequently.
Although every day for me is meatless “Monday” I like to challenge my friends and family who eat meat every day to one meatless or meat free day of the week. It just so happens that Meatless Monday has a nice, catchy ring to it. An example of what our most recent dinners are looking like and so quick and easy to pull together.
