Skunk cabbage is not really edible, but it has been fun to see it popping up in the marshy areas of the woods where I walk.
I think it looks kind of like hostas.
Luckily, the leaves only smell skunky if you bruise them. So as long as I’m just taking pictures, all is well. 😉
What I Spent
I spent $24 at Safeway, mainly to get some packed lunch supplies for Zoe. And that was it for shopping for me.
What We Ate
My mom made chicken tikka masala, which we ate with naan. We had broccoli on the side, plus a fruit salad.
She had some squash/black bean filling left, so my mom made some more of the burritos, which we ate with a green salad and some fruit salad.
I made pork tinga with rice (an ATK recipe), and of course we had a green salad and some fruit with that.
This recipe calls for chipotle chilies and look guys! My mom has the exact same jar of blended chipotles as I do at my own house.
My mom’s jar:
I wrote a whole post about how I blend and store chilies in the fridge, if you are interested.
Leftover pork tinga from Monday. With more salad. 😉 My parents eat a lot of salad. And they ARE in very good health, so…make of that what you will.
I think it’s a pretty safe bet to eat more salads; salad-eating is quite low-risk, and there’s a high possibility it will do good things for your body.
My mom made gumbo and rice, and this Smitten Kitchen cauliflower, which is very good.
We happened to eat a lot of rice this week, I guess. I didn’t even notice until I sat down to write this post!
We were all out at dinnertime, so no one cooked. I managed to feed Zoe and myself for $5 because I had some freebies, so, yay me!
Tonight is the Tenebrae service at my parents’ church, so I think we are just doing a quick fend for yourself thing before we go.
