We made watermelon-berry-lime Popsicles. Perfect for hot days and a good way to blend up older fruit so not to waste.
My children love avocado's-especially Claire. I usually cut one up, add course salt, sometimes a little cheese and they eat right out of it. What a lovely source of protein and those 'good fats'. I also bought each one of my children their own water bottle. The goal: to get each child to drink two a day. A hefty goal at times but here in the AZ heat, sometimes I don't even have to ask. Christian and I had a water distiller installed. The best $2500 we ever spent. What is better than pure water? And I mean seriously pure? (ps...I get my fluoride/minerals that everyone thinks they need in water, by eating dark leafy green vegetables...imagine that!)
I also made Jane's favorite. A whole wheat tortilla smothered with cinnamon and brown sugar. What a tasty little treat.
Dinner tonight was black bean chili. This chili was packed with onions, corn, and tomatoes. I also made buttermilk cornbread to eat on the side, and to crumble on top of the chili. Under the chili is a cheese whole wheat tortilla, to add a bit more bulk.
