Another week of pantry eating is upon us! We have quite the variety of dry beans, so you’ll see those as the staple of the week, and likely for the next few weeks as well as we work down the stash!
Monday: Black bean and sweet potato soup
Tuesday: Chinese meatballs, brown rice, green beans
Wednesday: Mac and cheese with white beans, broccoli
Thursday: Lemon chicken with capers, brown rice, carrots
Friday: Baked beans, cornbread, oranges
Saturday: Creamed chicken with cornbread dressing, mixed veggies
We spent the day at The Tech Museum in San Jose today. Every second Sunday is free day, and we took advantage! Readers, would you be interested in posts about local free events and activities for families?
Their current display shows technology benefits humanity, with technologies that are making a difference in the lives of impoverished people around the world. The one that struck me was a stair-master type water pump to irrigate fields and provide drinking water to people who otherwise would be reliant on rainfall. We take easy, affordable, readily available drinking water for granted, and explaining to Peanut that not everyone has running water reminds us that our situation, which I often think of as “poor”, is so much better than so many people who are struggling around the world just to have basic needs met. I am humbled and grateful!
