Seitan Stroganoff, rainbow sandwich, and more

My favorite black bean corn avocado salad (accept I don't cook anything like the recipe tells you to) with quinoa and kale. I mixed it all together to make the kale more palatable. It was raw, I like it cooked and only raw when other people make it into a really yummy salad. I never seem to have such luck. It was a refreshing dinner, and I did almost enjoy the kale.
A and I had these rainbow sandwiches for lunch. I spread almond butter (she finally will eat it), then put the cut fruit and sprinkled a cinnamon/date sugar combo that I use almost daily to get A to eat fruit. It was delicious and A ate everything but the kiwi. She usually likes kiwi too, but this one was a little over ripe so I didn't blame her.

Seitan Stroganoff cooking and in my bowl served with brown rice spirals. I didn't have the usual linguine noodles and A gets to pick out the pasta most of the time. She has been on a spiral kick lately, it was penne for EVER. Chris and I loved it, A liked the seitan and noodles but the mushrooms, onions and tomatoes did upset her occasionally. I loved this, I'm not sure where the recipe came from, a friend passed it on, but it is super.
Could he get any cuter?

I'd love to see that recipe if it's not too much a bother.

E loves all fruit so much she'd eat it to the exclusion of all else, but that rainbow sandwich she wouldn't touch - anything without a top she rejects. Even with avocado or Dreena's cinnamon hemp spread on toast, I have to put another slice on top or she'll wig out.

Yeah, athena had to eat most of the fruit first and then fold it in half. That is too funny, but she will eat some things open faced. She also balks at foods with faces, she doesn't want to eat them, like teddy bear pancakes or something. I haven't figured it out exactly.

All of that looks really amazing. The color on the salad and that open face sandwich.

I want the pasta.
