Indigo and Violet...phew!

Things seem to have been pretty hectic around here lately.  I've been busy preparing for L's birthday and birthday party next weekend as well as making her Halloween costume.
I also started teaching two music classes this week and have been looking for other work.

I really wanted to fit in our last rainbow meal this week so we could celebrate L's birthday with a complete rainbow meal with all of the colors.
I decided to combine indigo and violet since really we had a hard enough time with blue to try and do indigo as a whole meal on it's own.

So here we go.  It was actually very successful.  We had blue corn chips with hummus and red(which is actually totally purple!!)cabbage coleslaw with raisins and cashew nuts.  We also tried a Chinese eggplant which I fried up with some garlic, onions, mushrooms and green pepper.  It was totally yum!
L also had to have olives which are her favorite!

 We had blackberry and elderberry juice to drink and plums for dessert!
So there you have it.  Indigo and Violet.  We have  now managed to eat all the colors of the rainbow!! Woohoo!
I'm so looking forward to next week when we will eat all of the colors of the rainbow in one meal!
Stay tuned for that plus tons of upcoming posts on birthday preparations and celebrations!
