I couldn't find this thread at first and was all excited that I might get to start it for once! Oh well, I have come to realize that living as far west as I do, I should just be thankful I got to start it once upon a time. ;)

Tonight is my first evening shift back to work. Its gotten cold and nasty again so I'm leaving a chicken/veggie/pasta casseroley type thing for the family. Everyone is going to be running again. There's a funeral Ken is attending, and dance lessons for one of our girls. I think I'm going to take some soup to work with me as I'm feeling a bit blah.

I think we're now getting the truly cold weather the rest of you have been feeling the last few days. I was enjoying our warm spell (Warmer than LA and Vegas baby!) but now its back to cold weather food. Soup, stews and chili will be on the menu for a few days I think.

I have made a raw bean salad, similar to this one:

Raw green beans - Easy Raw Food Recipe For Green Bean Salad - Raw Food Green Bean Salad Recipe with Indian Spices

It was okay--I prefer to blanch the beans a little first. I'm not big fan of raw green beans because I don't like beans that have any "fuzziness" to them. I can handle raw wax beans, but not green beans.

I've made this and liked it--but I blanched the beans.

I guess you could make it with raw beans.

My meatloaf was a huge success! Now if I can just remember how I made it!? I really must learn to write things down lol! Made steamed baby potatoes and green beans, tossed with lemon, olive oil, sea salt and chillies. Was going to make green bean mash but the potatoes were too cute to squash!

DH is teaching tonight, it's cold and rainy and I'm getting over a cold. Not much for dinner. I had to go to the store so I picked up some hot dogs to go with the hot dog buns DH brought home (was supposed to be hamburger buns). I'll maybe have some baked beans chips and dip.

Thanks CW :) I'll try these. I ended up steaming our beans and giving my sons to him raw. I only saw your post now, sorry!
