menu time

I have a friend who has 10 meals she rotates for her family and they are happy with it. I believe it is my time to do this. If it was just my husband and me, things would be more layed back and relaxed, but with his autistic brother living with us, things need to be on time and also I need to fix more food, of course. We do enjoy having him live with us and he does wash dishes and sweep floors and about any other job we ask him to do (with no complaining even).

Here’s the first couple meals I made which they are happy with. We have cut out meat, dairy (except yummy kefir I make myself) and sweets, so I can’t just fix rice and lentils every day, although they would probably be okay with that too.
