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.

Stuffed Eggplant

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!

Hi Vicki - Loved your crab cake story - I agree with your friend - there is NOTHING like fresh Dungeness crab - canned doesn't even come close - Your Vegan dishes looked yummy - not that I'd ever get my DH to enjoy them - (he'd eat them, but he's kind of a meat and potatoes kind of guy.) I used to sell Pampered Chef, so I'm a pretty inventive cook - potlucks are the worst dilemma for me - do I take something fun to make - or something practical that I know my DH will eat (in case there are too many "wierd" things there) LOL - Well, I've got "miles to go before I sleep" so to speak - Later.

Tina-I am married to a devoted meat eater, but Vegan dishes would make great sides for meat eaters. Maybe your hub would be more accepting of the food that way? I try anything to get us to eat more vegetables. It's a chore but sometimes I hit the jackpot.

All of these look scrumptious and healthy and fresh, especially for the summertime! I've been trying to up our veggies lately too, I don't think it's that hard to do if you can make dishes like these that are filling and delicious! Thanks for the inspiration!
