Comfort Food for Lunch with Transferware

           Happy Weekend!

             I have been trying to eat healthier lately
                   and with three of our children are on vegan
              diets they are making me focus more on
           what we are eating.
           I am not planning on going vegan but just
             adding more veggies and beans and no
      red meat to see how that works for us.

So,for lunch today it is one of my
favorite soups ~ cream of carrot using
almond milk.

I love these old brown and cream
     soup bowls as well as the really old
transferware soup tureen.

Soup and apricot nectar.

I made Golden Party Loaves that have
grated carrots,apricot nectar and yogurt
in it, making a nice moist healthy loaf.

A large teapot full of tea to
linger over lunch.

In case you are wondering where I keep these
transferware dishes this is the main cupboard

    This old cupboard got painted last winter
with a grey/brown mistint. It was cream
before that but I prefer this color on it.

                   Grab a cup of tea

    And since I do have a sweet tooth I
        like to have something sweeter to end
           the meal. Coconut yogurt,strawberries
and granola hit the spot!

                     We have a basketball game to go to
                 shortly as our grandsons team is
                    in the semi finals. Tonight we go
                        to another grandson's hockey game.
                          It doesn't seem long since it was our
                         children's games we were going to....
                            so how did that happen so quickly????

                              Anyway, I hope you have a fun weekend!

Wow!!! I love your fabulous ideas for lunch. Your cupboard is beautiful, and I love the color of your cabinet. Yes, we are watching our granddaughters grow up. Our oldest granddaughter is in nursing school. Another granddaughter is starting college in the fall, and we just try to stay healthy. Love your posts. I love to look in the window of your life.

Hello Carolyn, I live in the UK and have only just discovered your lovely blog. I am really enjoying reading the posts. Would you be able to share your recipe for Golden Party Loaves? They sound delicious and we have nothing like them in the UK - I would love to have a go at making one. Kind regards.

Your post made me hungry. Everything looks delicious. I am like you. I like to finish a meal with something sweet. I really think that is the way all meals should end! I will be visiting my son in Denver and his wife is so good about eating healthy. I look forward to learning some new recipes. I hope you will share your recipe for the bread. It looks fabulous!
