Friday Freebies & the Promised Menu

As promised here's the menu for last night's early Mother's Day dinner. We had:

Whole wheat pasta with Garlic and Basil Tomato Sauce
Bakes Seitan in Tomato Sauce (think Italian sausage)
Tosses salad with homemade Catalina French Dressing
Homemade Breadsticks
Pineapple Walnut Bread
Tortilla Chips & Pretzels

I was able to get a ton of laundry done and all of it hung on the line to dry. I filled another bag of outgrown clothes to bring to my friend and another two to go to the donation bins. I even cleared out a drawer to store my fabric scraps in, although I never actually put the fabric scraps into it but later today I will!

Here's a link to Nutrition, on the Cheap which was part of this weeks Meatless Monday. I like the spirit of the post although last time I checked being your own butcher and eating fish and poultry weren't vegetarian.

Another interesting article is Eat To Live: Junk Food Linked to Cancer. Both studies in this article aren't conclusive but making positive dietary changes couldn't hurt.

Happy mother's day. Your menu for today looks delish. I really love your blog and your healthy outlook on food and life.
