I am never quite sure until the middle of that day. I try to do veggie 3 time/week, and the rest of the time fish, beef (we bought 1/4 of a cow) about once a week, turkey something, and chicken something. I don't know what to make until I know the weather.

Today, it was raining, but really *hot* and humid out, so I did wild salmon (frozen) on the grill, with a salad, and grilled potatoes & spinach.

If it's hot tomorrow, I'll grill veggie burgers (I don't like to do meat two times in a row) outside. If it's cool, I might make a bean & sweet potato stew or a veggie soup of some sort inside. I hear it's supposed to be hot and humid here for the next few days. If that's the case, I will only grill. I had to turn on the AC yesterday (in Oct in MA, and I hate doing that). If I use the oven, it will be too hot not to do so again.

Sunday I made chicken soup with (brown) rice.

Last night was tempeh sauteed in olive oil until crispy-golden in with onions and collard greens and a litte tamari. I served it with steamed millet and butternut squash. Served with salad.

I am doing a pot roast tonight- with potatoes, carrots, cabbage, and some homemade cornbread stuffing. Salad.

I am craving sweet potato and black bean stew again- my fav recipe from Vegan Planet. I'll probably make that tomorrow.

I have also been craving cilantro, so maybe something Mexican on Thurs.

Hey-- if there are no particular requests, I cook what I like...

I'll let you know how they turn out before I pass them on. Haven't made either recipe yet. :LOL Wouldn't want to tell you to make something that turned out icky, so I'll try em first and let you know.....
post #54 of 400
I am going to make:
Turkey Chili bake (turkey chili, with sweet corn mixed in, in a casserole dish topped with cornbread batter and baked)

Falafel and pita ( I like Fantastic Foods' falafel mix) with cucumber, tomato and onion

Tuna melts and baked fries

Butternut squash soup and spinach salad ( i have a great soup recipe if anyone wants it!)

Stirfry with sushi rice (the sticky kind seems easier for DS to feed himself)

And on the last night we usually have canned soup and grilled cheese night.

Alright, so the beans were no good, I had a feeling about them.
The cornbread turned out alright, I would probably make a few adjustments next time.

Coconut Cornbread
Mix together 1 3/4 c cornmeal, 3/4 c flour, 3/4 c toasted coconut, 1 1/2 t baking powder, and 1/2 t salt. Separately mix together 1 3/4 c plain yoghurt, 2 eggs, 1/4 c milk, 4 T syrup, and 2 T oil. (Next time I would probably replace the 1/4 c milk and 3/4 c of the yoghurt with coconut milk. It was a little tart for me.)
Put into a buttered loaf pan and cook at 350 for 50-55 minutes.

Kids' fav--roast chicken, potatoes, broc, carrots, salad with feta, whole wheat baguette (trying to fill the kids so they wouldn't eat too much candy before bed).

Tonight- stir fry with crispy tofu & udon noodles.

No way can I think further ahead than that.
