Mickey, Minnie, summer grain salad and a mixed green lunch
Posted July 31, 2012on:
I couldn’t resist. The girls have Mouse fever. Like Hello Kitty, they can never get enough of Disney. I found some Mickey & Minnie sandwich cutters on eBay, and I had to have them. I made them chocolate almond butter and agave nectar sandwiches with fresh fruit. From the top are pineapple, pear, mango and apple mice inbetween the sandwiches. I found the fabulous vintage looking plate on clearance at my local Target store.
I rely on a few websites for great tasting, vegan recipes. This one is adapted from Oh She Glows. Angela Liddon has amazing, original recipes that taste great. This one’s called the Back On Track Wheat Berry and Bean Salad. You can revise it how you like as I did. I had spelt berries and garbanzo beans in the pantry which is what I used. I love extra vegetables so I used lots of grape tomatoes, cucumbers, 3 colors of sweet peppers and green onions. The dressing is also by taste. It’s a great, filling salad for summer or a potluck dish too.
My husband is having a mixed green salad with broccoli sprouts along the sides. On top of the sprouts along the edges are sweet red peppers and cucumber Os. His side of spelt berry salad is at the top right and heart shaped strawberries at the top left packed in his Easy LunchBox container.
