Muffin Meals

No, these meals won't be muffins but Muffin is one of my nicknames. Besides, it sounds cute! After viewing the Vegan Lunchbox site, religiously, my Husband wants me to post my own menu. I will try to post one meal each day. I hope I inspire people to have creative and healthy home cooked meals. I think that even if you aren't a vegetarian, you'll like the meals I present. I do feature dairy products and eggs in my food from time to time, but will try my best to present vegan dishes as well.

Nothing fancy, but that's ok. They were good! I made Beans Melvon again, and on the tortilla added cheese, lettuce, onions, olives and tomatos.

Verdict: Gotta tell a story on this one. Mini Muffin is learning to nod and shake her head for yes and no. She already is learning the signs for yes and no, but likes to nod and shake her head. She also, like most children, is very agreeable, in that she wants to please us. So, I wanted her to choose her burrito toppings, in an attempt to get her to want to eat more vegetables. Now, she is learning to like lettuce, and does NOT like olives, but strangely, keeps trying to eat them. So I began to ask her, do you want beans? BIG NOD! Do you want cheese? Little nod, not a cheese fan, wants to please me. Do you want tomatoes? BIG NOD! Do you want olives? Nod, then she notices what I'm holding and gives me a funny look. So I say, its ok if you don't. She then vigorously starts shaking her head no! I almost died laughing. So then I asked, do you want lettuce? Teeny nod. So I say, just a little? BIG NOD! She had, in the end, a burrito the size of mine, just a tad skinnier. And then ate half of it, and wanted more tomatoes. After the extra tomatoes, she was full. LOL it was a good supper!
