Meal Plan {29.06.2013} + Carrot Raisin Salad

This week has been a little difficult – in total over 4 days, I have spent 24 hours in the airport due to cancelled flights to and from New York. Very tedious. Good news is, I got two rows of hexagons almost completed.

In desperate need of vegetables (airports are not the best for healthy food)…Today we are having coleslaw and Carrot raisin salad. The cabbages and carrots came from our garden.

  • 8-10 Carrots grated
  • 1 Tbsp Poppy Seeds
  • 1 lemon’s juice
  • 2 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup raisin

Toss all ingredients in a bowl with hands. Chill for 30 minutes or longer. Serve.

    That lamb stew sounds good. I would like to make something like that, but I have to wait till the fall to use my oven. It all sounds delicious. Enjoy your time at home.
