    Thanks for a great class! I just drank my greens :)

  2. Enjoyed the class and all of the delicious goodies I bought! I like the Greens+ powder, and the Alter Eco chocolate quinoa bar was gone within a few hours after returning home from class :) I’m planning to make the lentil barley soup for dinner tonight.

  3. I enjoyed the class as well. Mimi was a gracious teacher and host, and she was very willing to answer my newbie questions. All of the dishes were excellent and will be on my menu. I went shopping right after class and tonight I will make the North African stew! Later this week I will also make the lentil soup (once I can find the barley, the local Giant did not have it).

  4. A very good class. I’m really looking forward to making the cassoulet and cornbread. The flavor of the cassoulet was incredible and who doesn’t like good cornbread? :-)

  5. I made the Chuckwagon stew. Really good, the whole family enjoyed it. I put it over some rice to make it more filling. I also made mine in the crockpot. Turn it up to high on the last 20 minutes and then start gradually adding the thickener, give a minute between dribbles. The taste of the sauce reminds me of sloppy joes so it added something else I can do with it.

  6. A great class – yet again! My top 3 were Lentil Barley Soup, White Bean Cassoulet and Chuckwagon stew. I will target two recipes per week and try to do them all! Its getting cold out – so why not? The cornbread of course will go with the chili.

  7. As an update, I also made the North African Stew. Excellent, and the cinnamon was a different flavor than I am used to in a main course. I used butternut squash and I also added red quinoa right to the pot instead of preparing it separately. Definitely on the “gonna make it again” list! Thanks Mimi!
