I have been lucky enough to cook for some folks who come down once a year to vacation in my fair city. This is my second year to cook for them and if I get lucky I will be asked to come back for a third year.
One member of the family has a medical reason that he eats Vegan. For those of you who are meat eaters, that means that nothing with a face is consumed, even honey for some vegans. So I get to play once a year with different grains and vegetables that I don’t usually cook for my meat eaters. So they try new things and I get to enjoy learning new things as well.
Usually I make 5 salads, and 4 dinners with a slew of sides to go with each dinner. I didn’t repeat a lot this year. So there were some new things for them to try and hopefully fix once they get home. I always print off the recipes and leave them with the family. So here we go through the things that I fixed for the last three days that I cooked for the family.
Cucumber, Mango and Spinach Salad
Avocado and Black Bean Salad
Quinoa with Green Beans and Carrots
Zucchini Salad with Tomato Dressing and Pinenuts
I wanted to post more pictures but I think I have capped out on photos with blogger for today. I have some more pictures and will post them when I can!
