After two very busy weeks without childcare, our new au pair arrives tomorrow! Woo hoo! She is oh so lovely, but also oh so vegetarian. We tend to eat mostly vegetarian meals, but I’ve gotten in the habit of throwing in a meaty meal once a week and we also have a fish dish at least once per week (I guess that’s not a very vegetarian diet now that I think about it . . . ).
Dinnertime is a very important time of the day in the Hungerford household, and I really hate the thought of our au pair eating a separate meal from everyone else. Also, realistically, I don’t have the time/energy to cook two separate meals during the week. It seems like the best option will be to come up with more vegetarian meal plans, or to have meals where the meat/fish is easily omitted from one portion. (The last option would be tricky for me as I generally like to cook everything in one pot/dish when possible! Also, what would her protein be then. . . ) Anyway, you guys always have great advice and recipe ideas, so please link away in the comments below!!
White Fish with Herb Sauce and Artichokes
Chicken and Dumpling Soup
