Oh Happy Day

Our daughter, Samantha (Sam), arrived last night and will be staying with us for a few days!  She and her husband live in Chicago and we don’t get to see them as often as we would like.  So for the next few days, while George is at work,  we will spend our time catching up and doing all those mother-daughter things we used to do.  That includes grocery shopping.

Sam is a vegetarian so, while we don’t necessarily eliminate meat when she is here, we try to plan meals that are either vegetarian or include some kind of seafood.  Tonight we are having a shrimp and veggie paella.  It will be loaded up with red and green pepper, asparagus, mushrooms, green onion and paprika shrimp.  Tomorrow night she has requested potato pancakes and fresh applesauce.  Also on the menu, Stir fried rice, stir fried veggies and crab wontons, and a smoked salmon and cream cheese frittata. 

With meals like this who misses meat?
