Brownies again!

Last night we had the asian noodle tofu dish again and I used stir fried frozen veggies which cut down on the cooking time. I didn't use nearly enough veggies! I am slowly realizing that we need to up our veggie intake. I am going to start doing more salads with dinner. Maybe I can premake them ahead of time (naptime) so they are ready to go for dinner.

I have been toying with the idea of what foods to include/not include and have decided that we will do eggs and cheese on occasion. I will strive for a very small amount of animal protein per day but I am not going to stress about it. That would be counter-productive, wouldn't it?

I also made the black bean brownies again last night for playgroup today and used 1/2 cup of applesauce instead of eggs. OMGSOGOOD!! Next time I make the recipe I will play around with reducing the oil and increasing to 3/4 cup applesauce and 1 cup beans. I think the recipe should hold up fine. (As long as you slather with a can of frosting, ha!)

I have been telling people about the book where I can...I have mom reading it and dad is interested. I really can't recommend it highly enough.It is just hard to talk about without feeling "preachy". Luckily I am used to putting my foot in my mouth (verbal diarrhea), so it's not too big of a problem for me.

Tonight we will have veggie pizzas (sun dried tomatoes, eggplant, sauteed potatoes, spinach, mushrooms, and vegan mozzerella cheese.) I can't wait! This meal should be quick because I bought pre-made crusts.
