megame-- Hi! I remember you. . .yes, I was in the Sept 09 DDC, although DS decided to wait it out and be an Oct baby. :) Hey congrats on the FT mom thing! Fun isn't it? (Okay, I admit it's sometimes lonely and boring, but mostly really great.) Anyhow, nice to "see" you around here. I've made the leek and bean casoulet once and enjoyed it, using frozen biscuits would make it soooo much easier. I wonder if WF has some healthy, vegan biscuits in their frozen section?
jldumm-- thanks for the idea. I was just looking at a similar roasted cauliflower soup recipe yesterday! Although it's actually been so warm here in NorCal (I know, I know, you can hate me now), that I haven't wanted to make soup. But I may just have to b/c I am so low on ideas for that dang veg! And I guess you could call me a vegan light. Or an aspiring vegan. I've been vegetarian for a decade now and dabbled in veganism, and in my heart I'm vegan, but I find that a little ice cream and an egg brunch always manage to creep in. (Shame on me!) But I do cook mostly vegan.
Last night I wound up with a yummy meal, just by trying to use up some stuff that was sitting around. . .love it when that happens. I simmered some random veggies in some leftover mole sauce and we ate it with some leftover rice.
Okay, I've got a half-baked (pun, ha ha) meal plan for this week:
Tonight is leftovers for me, as DH will eat at work.
Roasted cauliflower soup (with ?)
Kale and tofu salad
Pasta with "sausage" and brocolli
. . .and Friday night I haven't decided yet. I usually try to make my nicest meal of the week on Friday for our (non-religious) sabbath meal.
I'll likely do kale chips at some point this week, b/c I love them so. And hopefully have time for a batch of vegan cookies. I made a good low-sugar, low-fat carrot cake this weekend.
