We've been gone since Sunday - it was spring break and we spent the week down in Laguna Beach. We saw a little bit of sun but a lot of rain. I know I'm repeating myself but I'm so tired of the rain!
We found some good restaurants - Indian, Thai, Mongolian BBQ - where we were able to get good vegan food. Driving home tonight one of the girls said "mom, what's for dinner?" Argh. There was nothing in the house and I really didn't feel like one more meal out. So I rummaged through the freezer and pantry and we put together the sweet and sour "meatballs" mentioned awhile back at veganlunchbox. I had two packages of the frozen organic basmati rice that Trader Joe's sells. I doubled the sauce (grape jelly and chili sauce) and we had the meatless meatballs over rice. Everyone loved these! I was amazed at how popular this was. Quick, easy and everyone ate it. What's not to love? It's good to be home and I look forward to being back in the kitchen!
