What we eat

Samantha eating applesauce.

I've had some questions on what we usually eat. I love simple meals. A few times a week I am trying out different recipes, but we usually eat the same things. I should get more creative! Kimball and I do go out to eat. Maybe once or twice a month.

Eggs. Always. There easy and Dieter loves them.
Smoothie with milk kefir and pineapple. We only have this when I have pineapple.
On Sundays we have sausage.

Usually leftovers. I loved having soups all winter. It was so easy to have for leftovers.
Pizza. It is easy to cook up for Dieter.
Ground hamburger with salt.
Steamed broccoli and cauliflower.

I have to be more creative for dinner. If I remember, I will start cooking a chicken or beef roast in the afternoon.
I am big on sourdough pizza right now (for Kimball and I).
Pork chops. Our whole family loves those.
Spagetti is easy.
I've been making these biscuits a lot.
Steamed vegetables.
Fermented carrots.
Home canned beans.
Home canned honey peaches.
Squash. We don't have any more in the root cellar. It is so expensive to buy, but I still do it.
Now that it is getting warmer. I will be looking for a lot more crock pot recipes.

We all love these almond biscuits.
Coconut flour bread is good.
If I need a treat, I cook custard, pudding, or gingersnap cookies. They are all simple.
Raisins. Dieter loves them. Really people. I think he would choose raisins over anything.
Dried apricots or nectarines.

What Samantha Eats
Breast milk.
Chicken and stock.
Steamed broccoli and cauliflower/ vegetables.
Eggs. Boiled (I only give her the yoke) and scrambled.
Homemade applesauce.
Fermented carrots.
Dried Apricots. I let her suck on them until they fall apart. Then I take them.
I give her the crust on Dieter's pizza.

There you have it. I'm sure I have missed many things but that gives you a idea. Oh, and I am trying not to snack and trying not to give Dieter snacks. You might think I am strict, but he eats better when he doesn't snack. I will give him a snack in-between lunch and dinner.

Great ideas! I feel like we get often get stuck in a rut and have the same things over and over!
