Fall "What's for Dinner" Thread

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

I'M BACK!!!

 

Exhausted but getting into the groove of having baby #4 and moving all within 5 days of each other(DO NOT SUGGEST IT)

 

We've recently gone gluten free so we've had quite a bit of changes in our diet. Right now I'm gluten free vegan and the rest of the family are gluten free/dairy free but still doing eggs.

 

Last night we had one of the kids new fave dinners-Pumpkin gluten free pasta with a kale Asian salad. The pasta is based on the Oh She Glows pumpkin cheeze sauce. It's AMAZING with tortilla chips. I could eat the whole batch of sauce with chips myself. I've made it twice now and doubled the recipe both times and I JUST have enough leftovers to send the kids to school with. They gobble it up.

 

Tonight I'm making curry with leftover potatoes/cauliflower from Sunday dinner and soy beans for last nights salad.

Eating lots of squash and curries too. Just tried the pumpkin coconut curry and the beer stew from Vegan Eats World which were delicious. Lots of butternut squash soup and roasted pumpkin seeds.

I'll have to check out that pumpkin cheese recipe. It sounds delicious.

Congrats on baby #4, Caiesmommy!!!:) My Goodness, I can't even imagine how it must have been having your baby and moving within a few days!!!

The pasta dish sounds delish, I'll have to check out 'Oh She Glows' for the recipe, thanks for the hint!!!

 

Nothing special here... eating lots of frozen meals (home made) and pasta...:innocent

Baked spaghetti squash mixed w/olive oil and some almond/dried cranberry thing in a plastic bag, which MIL gave me. Sauteed julienne onion, mixed peppers, fried tofu on top. DH was stuck at work till time to go to dd's soccer game, kids ate only their obligatory 1 bite (plus the tofu), so I was the only one to enjoy this dish, which I thought was fab.

 

Thinking about maybe stuffing some peppers tonight (getting boatloads from the CSA) with some fake chorizo, maybe some brown rice . . . which again the kids won't eat, so I'll give them some effen fake hot dogs and baked potatoes. Sigh.

Any new meals here??? (and a belated congrats on your new baby @caiesmommy)

 

We were boring and just had pizza with "ccinironi" (our family word for zuccini slices- prounounced keeny-roni) on top. :bgbounce 

 

ETA: Finally got rid of that annoying 'new member' badge... that only took 4 years....

Been completely off my rhythm with the MIL in town but made the pumpkin kibbe from Vegan Eats World a couple of weeks ago and it was fabulous.

We've been doing lots of curries in the crockpot lately. I just throw in whatever veggies I have on hand, plus trader joes simmer sauce, and tofu or beans. So good! I also made a yummy pumpkin curry soup, but no one ate it except me. :/

Crock pot, why didn't I think of that? Brilliant.

Nobody eats pumpkin curry soup at my house either, except me. :)

We had these Sweet Potato/Black Bean/Corn/Honey/Lime Tacos for dinner tonight:  http://www.cookingclassy.com/2013/09/honey-lime-sweet-potato-black-bean-and-corn-tacos/ - they were a hit with my teenagers and husband, and came together in 30 minutes.

 

I bought 20 pounds of sweet potatoes before Thanksgiving (they were 4 pounds for a dollar - I went a little crazy :blush ) so now I have a freezer full of bags of peeled, cubed sweet potatoes to fall back on, and I'm searching Pinterest for more sweet potato recipes.

Nothing really special going on here lately either.The last few nights have been:

 

Vegan mac & cheeze with broccoli and a bit of tofurkey

Chili beans and corn bread

Glazed tempeh, herbed orzo, and a delicata and greens sautee

 

Glad to see one of these threads up and going again. It is always helpful to see what others are eating for inspiration.

I'm glad to see this thread.  I need ideas; as usual.

 

Last night we had bean, veggie and cheese burritos (they were not GF or DF so I should not have eaten them, but I did.)

 

Tonight we had chili that was GF and DF.  I didn't make it from scratch - used Manhattan Chili Co.'s vegetable and quinoa chili and just added edamame.   Next time we'll add a little spice too.

 

Tomorrow night I am planning on making mushroom bourguignon from Smitten Kitchen (I'll use GF noodles instead of egg noodles, substitute veggie broth, butter, etc. to make it GF and DF so I can eat it too).  For lunch I hope to use up the sprouted savory baked tofu I have that is close to expiration date.  It is the only tofu we like.  For a simple lunch we saute it in a bit of grapeseed oil with onions and green peppers and then add GF BBQ sauce.  We'll eat it with a salad.
