Today I have a very simple grain and bean salad recipe for you. Something you can easily whip up if you have leftover grains and beans. My children love this salad. Today I made it for Tom and packed it up for him to take on a two day trip to Seattle.
If you have been following my last few posts, you'll know that I have been totally consumed taking care of all four of my children whom have had the chicken pox. Luckily now they will have lifetime immunity! The end of this week marks 5 whole continuous weeks of dealing with this. Now we are on the home stretch. My last child, 16 month old Ben, has them this week. He had a 105.3 fever the other night, the highest I have ever seen a fever before.
Thank goodness for breast milk, which was his only food for almost 2 days. He was not interested in food or water and I would imagine would have been very dehydrated if it weren't for mama's milk. Now today, he is beginning to get his little Benny spunk back and has been busily playing outside for most of the day.
The kale that I picked, along with a few chives, was for a simple rice and garbanzo bean salad that I made for Tom before he left for a weekend trip to Seattle. Packed in a to-go container, this meal is ideal for lunches away from home.
I hesitated posting something like this because it is so simple, but sometimes the simplest things are the best.
