Keep Calm & Get Cooking

So long as you have food in your mouth, you have solved all questions for the time being. — Franz Kafka

I never want our busy lives to hinder eating good wholesome meals. Yes, I eat breakfast and lunch at work. And Husband eats lunch and dinner at work. We have weird schedules. Like I've said before, food is my love language, and I desire to send Husband off each day with with a wholesome lunch (and dinner) bag. For our lifestyle, the only way to accomplish this is organization. Each weekend I create a menu, grocery list and then hit the local grocer. Upon returning home I sort out my ingredients and start prepping/cooking.

This week's menu:
wild mushroom barley risotto — modified to be vegan friendly of course!

thai basil eggplant over organic steamed brown rice

palak tofu served with vegan roti

ratatouille — not a new recipe for us, just a simple throw together meal packed full of veggies.

And last but not least, roasted tomato and black bean soup.
This is a new recipe I'm developing and will share soon!

Like Julia Child once said, You have to eat to cook. You can't be a good cook and be a non-eater. I think eating is the secret to good cooking. That is the whole premise of how I cook. When picking out new recipes to try, I never really follow them — they're just guidelines. Taste and see. Do what is delicious to you!

So dear readers, how do you stay organized to feed your family? Any good tips? Please share!
