Home Cookin'

Today's lunch menu featured a Spanish Fritatta and cabbage salad, followed by an apple crisp.

To make your cabbage salad, you will need 1/4 large cabbage (save the rest for future use), 1 carrot, 1 small onion. Put all of these into your food processor so they look like they've been grated. Put cabbage, onion and carrot shreds into a medium sized bowl and add 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise, salt, black pepper, a touch of cider vinegar and a little sprinkle of Splenda (I don't put sugar or Splenda in my recipe though).

Mix everything together and serve. It's a balanced meal with the protein from the eggs and you've also got a bit of carbs with the potato in the fritatta. Hubby and the boys wanted freshly baked bread too. They aren't like me--they don't mind doubling up on carbs! LOL!

My student, P1 helped make the apple crisp. You could smell the fresh cinnamon all throughout the house! Mmmmmmmm! P2 made the bread, as he's becoming an expert bread maker here! Ahh...the things these kids are learning living in the country! :)

There's no meat in that dish! A meal is not complete without a serving of meat! *wink* *wink*

LOL! Don't eggs count as a meat substitute? :)
