Oh man! I am close, but not close enough.

I am attempting to make some sort or mushroom barley mixture & roasted asparagus

Tonight i used (but modified) a recipe from allrecipes.com called One Dish Vegetarian Dinner

it was:
Pasta mixed with broccoli and sliced black olives and tossed with garlic cooked in olive oil (and i added a few more spices, red pepper flakes, some italian seasoning, a dash of lemon pepper seasoning salt, and some parmesean cheese (my sil said it really helped, but i am sure for non-dairy vegetarians you could leave it out or use something else).

It was DELISH! : And the house smells great!

Tonight was a thrown together stir-fry with carrots, broccoli, mushrooms, onion, garlic, tempeh and pineapple terriyaki sauce over coconut jasmine rice. It was pretty good!

Last night we had Linguini with Broccoli Sauce and Garlic from Vegan Italiano. Tonight we had baked black bean burgers from Veganomicon. Both were delicious!!

Right now I have a tamale pie in the oven. I got the recipe from Compassionate Cooks (from the author of the Joy of Vegan Baking and the awesome veg podcast!)

My friend didn't show at the Nepalese place, so came home to eat. Thankfully, I'd marinaded some tempeh earlier in the day, so pan-fried and topped it with an amazing lemon dill sauce (from my wonderful neighbor). Baked potatoes and peas on the side. It was the bomb!

I've got Morroccan Stew in the crockpot. The recipe is from Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker: it's got chickpeas, green beans, peas, dried fruit, olives, all sorts of good stuff. I am smelling the spices right now...yum!

I am going to serve it over couscous. Can't wait!

Last night was Roasted Asparagus Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Pine Nuts (from Vegan Planet.)

Tempeh picatta (yum!), coconut rice pilaf with toasted almonds and peas, and green salad with maple-balsamic vinaigrette. The tempeh was sooooo good!

First Veganomicon meal tonight - potato kale enchiladas. Haven't tasted them assembled yet, but the filling and sauce nibbles rocked my world! I added the leftover failed cannellini "beans in a bottle" to the filling...since they didn't have any taste, thought they wouldn't hurt (and added protein). Having corn and plain old rice on the side 'cause there was no cilantro for lime/cilantro rice.

Kahlua on ice for dessert - another one of those days thanks to last night's ugliness

Tonight we had my best chickpea patties yet with yams roasted with garam masala. My intent was to also make gravy, but I didn't get to it.

DH is still out of town.. so, the night before last I had pasta salad, and yesterday I had veggie pizza delivery

DH should come home tonight, but not sure when. It will probably be too late for dinner.

Oh man... I'm drooling here, mamas!!! LOL
I guess I couldn't convince you to share your recipes too, huh?:

We're going to have veggie Shepherd's Pie. I've switched a few things since I didn't have tamari soy sauce for ex. but used Bragg's instead etc. It's the first time I've used this recipe, so we'll see how it turns out lol.

Here's the recipe if anyone cares

Shepherd’s Pie

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large yellow onion, chopped
1 large carrot, chopped
4 ounces white mushrooms, chopped
1 tablespoon tomato paste
2 tablespoons tamari soy sauce
3/4 cup Basic Vegetable Stock (page 000)
1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried
1 teaspoon minced fresh marjoram or 1/2 teaspoon dried
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons cornstarch dissolved in 1 tablespoon cold water
3 vegetarian burgers, thawed and chopped
1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
1/4 cup ground walnuts
3 cups mashed potatoes
1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and carrot. Cover and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook 3 minutes longer, stirring occasionally.
2. Stir in the tomato paste, tamari, vegetable stock, thyme, marjoram, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the cornstarch mixture and simmer to thicken slightly, about 1 minute.
3. Spoon the filling mixture into a lightly oiled 2-quart baking dish. Stir in the chopped burgers, the peas, and the walnuts. Taste to adjust seasonings.
4. Spread the mashed potatoes over top. Sprinkle with paprika and drizzle with the remaining oil. Bake until hot and bubbly and the top is golden brown, about 30 minutes.
Serves 4

My DH is still out of town, he's due back tonight, but not until long after dinner. The girls and I have had nothing but soup all week, and frankly, I'm pretty sick of it.....so tonight we are having sweet potato and spinach quesadillas, guacamole and tortilla chips. I was going to make some vanilla "rice" cream to go with it, but DD2 is sick, and I ran out of time to allow it to freeze properly, so we'll be having that later this weekend. I think instead we'll have some mangoes to go along with it.

We're having Neat Loaf. We read "Benji Bean Sprout Doesn't Eat Meat" today and the boys wanted to try Benji's favorite meal. I'm using the recipe from PCRM.
