Healthy Meal Plan: Global Potluck

I love the two Sweet Pea's elementary school.  Hardly a week goes by without me saying "I love this place," or "thank you for leading us here."  The best part?  The boys love the school going, love learning, love sharing what they've learned.

I'm a very thankful mom.

But two things this week that made me really step back and say, "wow!"  The first, is a partnership our school is doing with artisans in Third World Countries, involving fair trade and education.  Wow.

The second was a potluck that R's teacher put together, complete with a World Cafe theme.  R's class has students and families from Egypt, Ethiopia, Brazil, Germany, just to name a few.  Each family brought a dish from their heritage.

We ate *good* at the potluck:

You ready to eat good (and healthy) next week?  Here's a meal plan:

Meatless Monday:  Lentil Soup, Bread, Arugula Salad, Kiwi

Pork Loin with Apple and Sage, Rice, Blood Oranges

Sweet Potato and White Bean Enchiladas, Mango

Chana Masala, Quinoa, Naan, Pineapple


 Olive Bar Fish, Grits, Green Beans, Pear

 Curried Chicken Salad over Greens, Pita


Have a great weekend!

Life is sweet,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
