What's for dinner? Fall to winter thread - Page 4

post #61 of 103

Last night was lentil coconut curry with cauliflower.  I got the recipe from one of these threads.  It was delicious, but made a lot!  Served with WW naan and a dollop of Greek yogurt.  It was just DS and me last night so I took some for lunch today.  Hopefully DH can help us finish off more of it tomorrow night.

 

Tonight is a school fundraiser at a local pizza place.  Most likely I will have a slice of pizza with roasted red peppers and artichoke hearts.  yummy.gif

Last night I made the veggie burgers out of leftover red lentil curried soup w french fries and salad. The burgers did bind and fried well/stayed together but it was odd since they tasted so much like soup. Ds and youngest dd ate them and Ds said he'd prob eat them again but if I made them differently lol. Oldest dd wouldn't touch them...sigh

 

Tonight I made a hoison/ginger tofu w sesame raman noodles served in lettuce cups w carrot slaw/cukes/peppers. Topped with cilantro/green onion and lime. THEY WERE AMAZING. Youngest dd FINALLY ate tofu for me and Ds ate 3 of them. DD again wouldn't touch them...errr

Last night was perogies and raw veggie. I was in full sick pregnancy mode and I scratched my cornea and it got infected so my eye was near swollen shut. The idea of cooking wasn't happening.

 

Tonight was a cous-cous w cranberries,almonds,peas and cilantro,tossed pear salad,roasted cauliflower and red lentil patties.

Caiesmommy - oh no, hope you feel better and you eye heals quickly!

 

Yesterday we found a great little hole in the wall mediterranean grocery and deli.  I told the owner that we were vegan and he made us 3 big falafel sandwiches and a large container of bean soup (I think red or yellow lentils?) for $9.  We feasted until we were stuffed. :) 

 

Today I am making a tofu pot pie and Vegan With A Vengeance's Raspberry Chocolate Chip Blondies.

Last night was spinach and pea risotto, baked in the oven so super low maintenance.  Perfect Sunday night comfort food!

We've been trying to push my middle sons food limits lately so we are going to keep to his favs for a couple days.

 

Last night we had Vegan Dad seitan sausages, herbed orzo, and zuchini and onion tots. The tots were a new recipe and didn't turn out like I had hoped but they were atleast edible.Tonight will be bean tacos and tomorrow spaghetti and sausage. Stil need to plan next week after I go shopping Friday.

It's taco night here at the Buttercup household.  I made "traditional" tacos with crumbles for the teenagers, and the Zucchini, Black Bean, and Olive tacos from Appetite for Reduction for adults.  The kids have enough leftovers for tomorrow, and I'm going to add our leftovers to a tofu-scramble and call it brinner.

I have no clue what I've been making this week lol

 

Tues was vegan scalloped potatoes in the slow-cooker(HUGE NASTY MISTAKE) so we have a ton leftover that I froze to attempt to make potato soup out of. We had it with roasted honey carrots,steamed broccoli,baked peach hoison tofu and a kale/carrot slaw.

 

Last night pregnancy sickness hit me again and it was tin veggie soup and vegan grilled cheese for the kids. Dh came home to a big bowl of organic o's for dinner greensad.gif

Last night I had black bean taco's. Tonight I had pasta and breaded eggplant with marinara and a garden salad. Yum!

We're having the Pasta de Los Angeles from Appetite for Reduction, plus mango sorbet.  However, it's game night (we play D&D - we're nerds like that) so I had to find a snack the tadpole will tolerate - I am having the weirdest 1st trimester food aversions.  It's like I can't eat anything processed - the longer the ingredients list, the less likely it is to stay down.  Spicy isn't a problem - as long as I make it from scratch, using whole ingredients - but the more "chemical" type ingredients something has, the more it tastes like metal when I try to eat it.

Yay crunchy vegetarian gamer moms! Me too! I'm actually one of the guests at GameStorm in Vancouver, WA next month, running a Firefly LARP.



My go to game night snack is blanched, chilled broccoli and peanut sauce, or veggie gyoza. But we've been playing a lot of Serenity for the last few years, and that calls for Asian food.

Thursday was the tofu/noodles in a lettuce cup again,requested by ds and dd FINALLY caved and ate it and LOVED it joy.gif

 

Last night was rice and pigeon peas(pregnancy craving),cinnamon squash,jerk coconut veggie sautee and a mango salad. DD inhaled it. DS not so much...sigh

 

Tonight is a lentil loaf using leftover mashed squash. Mashed potatoes,mushroom gravy,sauteed shredded brussell sprouts and salad. Maybe broccoli too

Whoa - a Firefly LARP!  That totally outranks my game night, lol.

 

Last night we went out to Torchy's with friends to celebrate their engagement.  Fried Avocado Tacos!  Get in my belly!  :eat  But tonight will be a more humble Chickpea, Rice, and Kale soup from the ppk - easier on my budget and my tummy.

Tonight I'm attempting this recipe with some tweaks. I've got tons of black eyed peas so I'm excited to use them a new way

It's Sunday so I am going to cook a few things so we have quick and easy lunches and dinners this week.  I am making an asian slaw with edamame, seitan ribs, spoonbread,  vegan ricotta and mozzarella calzones, curried roasted sweet potatoes and cauliflower, vegetable kugel and brownies.  :)   I think we will eat the 'ribs' with greens and the spoonbread for dinner tonight.  It sounds like a lot but it is all pretty easy stuff and having it onhand will help keep us from ordering out.

As I said in my last post, I'm lazy and pregnant and not cooking too much... but last night I made local fresh spinach pasta with lemon tofu, mushrooms, spinach, zucchini in a fake butter/miso sauce. Love reading all the ideas on here, btw! Thanks mamas :).

Last night was CP black bean and sweet potato chili with cornbread.  Seemed like good Super Bowl food.

 

Tonight is taco salad with pinto beans, salsa, and avocado with the leftover cornbread.

That sounds AWESOME. I've been hating pasta and the kids have been begging. Could I have a break down on the lemon tofu and the miso sauce?

 

Tonight is sloppy lentils,chilli potato wedges and an asian slaw
