At your rate you should go vegan; better for yourself and the child.  What about leafy greens and various salad with non creamy dressings like vinnegarettes; adding the veggies to the salad that you do like.  Also grain experimentations.  Quinoa (a small grain)is pretty cheap, filling and fun to eat, tofu dishes or tempeh (teriyaki  style or with some soy sauce and added veggies)
check out www.vegweb.com
By avoiding the typical american diet of meat and dairy you open yourself up to so many more options and it will have a very positive affect on your child in varition from the typical child palate of hotdogs and macaroni and cheese!

with your crock pot you could also probably try out some curries (sweet rather than tradition spicy mexican)
what about nuts; just grab a handful and go; very nutritious and filling

I love this dish and its pretty easy to make, similiar to a vegetable stir fry.

You need;
Wok (large frying pan should work too)
2-3 TBL oil (peanut, veggie etc)  For a sweeter dish use part Sesame oil)
Hottening agent such as cayenne or chili power (desired amount)
Large Eggplant, 4 Zucchini or a combo of the two (chopped into bite size pieces)
4-5 Cloves Garlic (minced)
1 Pepper (any color) chopped
1-2 cups mung beans
1 medium onion (chopped)
Basil (about 20 leaves or so)
2 TBL vinegar (white works fine but if you have quite the sweet-tooth, you can use rice wine vinegar)
3 TBL Tamari

Heat oil in wok and add eggplant/zucchini.  Coat with oil and add beans.  Cook 3 minutes and add garlic, onion and pepper.  Cook 3-5 more minutes and add hottening agent.  Stir in tamarie and vinegar and cook for about 5 more minutes.  Turn off heat and add chopped basil...Enjoy!
This recipe is very versatile and you can pretty much add whatever you want.  I think some added bokchoy and broccoli would be excellent.  Tofu or Seitan can also be added abou the time the beads are added if you want more protein.

Oh, sorry for the misinformation about the cream of tartar, but I bet you could use it for a substitute.  Also with the various flours, I think your best bet is to just start experimenting and you may find something you like even better than the original recipe.

Tempeh pieces; they are a bazillion ways to cook tempeh...not overly difficult or time consuming, maybe prep them the night before. 
I think tempeh would be easier to eat while riding in the car.
Also multigrain bread with various butters; cashew, almond or peaunut butter pack a pretty good protein punch.
7  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Rice Milk on: March 20, 2006 07:46:00 PM
Does anyone make their own rice milk?
Do you use boiling and blending or actually have a maker?
What recipes do you use?
Do you add any supplements like calcium, vitamin D..etc?

Cream of Tartar is the same as tartaric acid...do you have that?

I'm not really sure about the yam flower but you could maybe experiment with rice and potato flours or a mixture of the two.

Vegan with a vengeance is pretty awesome!  The recipes aren't too difficult, expensive or time consuming, yet incredibly delicious and great for anyone including omnis.

Actually I gave it to a friend from school when she moved  into a new house but I would probably hang it on a wall unless you had an open surface to set it.  A cluttered desk or countertop area my be kind of awkward with a large record cover clock but I'm sure it could work in the right environment.
