Enjoying Dahl…recipe from my friend Jenn. This makes a lot and can be seasoned to your tastes, extra veggies added as you like.
2 cups brown rice (dry)
2 cups red lentils
I lrg can crushed tomatoes
1 can coconut milk
3 cloves garlic (or more)
Several handfuls green beans (both are optional)
Olive oil/butter/coconut oil or a combo to melt in pan and sautee onions
1 stalk celery
1-2 cups water or veggie stock
Ginger root diced,if you like it
In saucepan, cook brown rice about 50-60 mins according to directions
Chop onions and garlic, and ginger
Melt butter/oil/coconut oil (I used half olive oil and half butter) in large pot on med
Add onions, garlic and ginger to pot
Chop carrots and celery while onions cook, stir onions occasionally, add carrots and celery
Measure and rinse lentils in strainer
After about 2 mins add water, coconut milk, tomatoes and lentils
Bring to a boil, then turn back to simmer and cover.
Cook on low 20-30 mins
Add curry podwer, etc to taste.
This freezes well and can even be served in a tortilla with avocado and lettuce the next day. Everyone in our family loves it! And it’s very inexpensive.

Monday is now baking day at our house, and I already have my eye on these crackers.
Weekly theme days:
Tuesday – painting
Wednesday –wash (probably hand washing as we are without laundry facilities!)
Thursday –craft/nature walk
Friday –polish wooden toys/bowls etc.
These are just the themes for Sapphire and I together, I’m working on meals based on the days of the week as well.
Lastly, someone of the waldorf early childhood yahoo group shared this song and I thought I’d share it with you as well:
