It's September! What's for Dinner?

post #1 of 117
Thread Starter 
I can't believe it's September already! Sitting here in Mpls watching the RNC coverage and dreading heading to downtown St. Paul for work tomorrow morning.....

Anyway, tonight was Veggie Pot Pie with zuke, yellow squash, carrot, celery, potato, and some Morningstar "chicken". Honeydew chunks on the side.

Triple chocolate cookie for dessert.

Lemon and Garlic Roasted Broccoli with Pecans
Baked Brown rice
Yellow and Red Cherry Tomato and Basil Salad

And fresh frozen pineapple and strawberry juice cocktails (with a splash of vodka for the grown ups)

Left over pasta salad and vegan icecream! SAD...but I worked too late to think about cooling for myself when the boys had already ate

Tonight I am making a whole wheat broccoli ravioli with some sauteed tomatoes from the garden and a little pesto, and some steamed spaghetti squash (also from the garden).

Tonight was tofu salad (diced baked tofu, chopped green olives, black olives, cashews, celery and scallions tossed with Veganise) served over lettuce. Simple but delish.

: Subbing to this thread!

We're going to have a cold pasta dish with some fresh tomatoes, chickpeas and eggplant tossed in (with olive oil and balsamic vinegar).

Last night was tofu, squash, fresh corn, mushroom and onion burritos with cilantro-lime rice. Oh, with avocado slices, too. And fresh sweet orange cherry tomatoes - they're like candy!

Last night we had spaghetti- not very exciting but unfailingly good.

Tonight was rice and beans with fire-roasted tomatoes, zucchini and corn. Served with blue corn tortilla chips.

Chickpeas piccata, garlic mashed potatoes, southern-style kale.

Luckily, unlike MinneMom, I don't work downtown! But I can hear the sirens from where I live every time things get out of hand.

It's a rainy, gloomy day in Chicago, but in the spirit of being grateful for the rain after so many days without any, we embraced the coziness and made soup. It's smelling wonderful right now: cauliflower, diced red potatoes, leeks, broth, cumin, garlic powder, and EB. We'll have it with bagels and tofutti cream cheese & fresh homemade grape jam I made yesterday.

Which reminds me: I have to brag a little! I picked grapes off our vines and made the most delicious jam EVER! It was so rewarding!!!

I'm in central Illinois and it's been rainy and gloomy here too. I decided that I would not complain because it could be so much worse, like all the tropical storms and hurricanes down south and the midwest flooding earlier this year, and like you said, we needed some rain too.

I made chili and cornbread muffins from Vegan Lunchbox. That is my absolute favorite corn bread EVER!

Keeta - I'm drooling over that curry! This weekend...

Last night was mung beans and rice with garlic green beans (we have an abundance of greenbeans at the moment) and apples.

Tonight was potato leek soup (dying for a rainy gloomy day over here lol!), fish cakes for those so inclined, onion and garlic greenbeans, and rice with kidney beans.

Tomorrow I think we will splurge and have corn on the cob, salmon for those inclined, and a quick pasta salad with summer squash, great northern beans, and freshly made tomato sauce from the csa/container garden on the deck.

Either Sat. or Sun. I plan on making that curry...too good to pass up!

I tried to make a quick dinner because DF started out the evening wanting to go walk around St. Paul and people-watch... after watching the news coverage, I'm glad we didn't go. The last thing I need is an 18 mo-old with tear gas in his eyes.

I did a creamy white bean and veggie casserole flavored with Old Bay seasoning and topped with biscuits. We had CSA cucumbers and my DSD's mom's garden tomatoes on the side with tahini-dill dressing. DF grabbed a couple of giant vegan cookies for dessert at the coop.

Waaah - I wanted to make that curry tonight, but I've got a rotten cold. So dh is in charge for him and ds, dd is at a sleepover, and I'm holing up under the blankies. I did make vegan tortilla pizzas from our CSA sauce (made from their tomatoes, zucchini's, spinach, and a bit of spices and oil on hand - it's SO yum!). I couldn't smell or taste them, but they sure looked good!

Not to seem TOO d'uh, what is a DF?
