Hey, Atilla. We're eating only what we have in the house this week. Luckily, we had a frozen turkey (20 lbs!), so we'll be eating turkey for a while. We went to Costco yesterday and returned an outdoor shower I bought last year for our new deck...we got a gift card, so we bought basics there...eggs, butter, bananas, oranges, apples, carrots, and grapes. I'll be doing some baking with the apples and banana, as I don't see how it's possible we'll eat ten pounds of oranges, four pounds of grapes and five pounds of bananas before they all go bad. But, hey, it's fruit! Anyway, on our menu this week:

Tonight: Homemade Bolognese sauce, pasta
Tomorrow: Roast turkey, mashed potatoes, steamed carrots
Tuesday: Turkey Shepherd's Pie, salad, homemade rolls
Wednesday: Chicken and Chops on the grill, green beans, stuffing
Thursday: French Toast with homemade Challah bread, oranges
Friday: Calzones and salad
Saturday: Cold Turkey and Noodle salad with carrots, peppers, celery, and red onion.
Sunday: Polenta with Italian Sausage Sauce

Oh, I love making bagels! Just remember to put any extra "stuff" (sauteed onions or cinnamon and raisins) in before the rise stage. I forgot the first time, and it was quite interesting!

Wow, it's so great to see some new faces on this thread.

We've been tracking our spending lately and we are spending $200/month for a family of 3. That includes occasional meals out, which I really need to stop because I want to get it down more. Much of our food, but not all, is organic.
Posting menus is really helping me not to overspend and to use up what we do buy, with very little waste. I love this thread, so I am so thrilled to see new people participating.


Wednesday: White beans and kale on garlic bread (the recipe is here, and it's one of our favorites.

Thursday: Lentil burgers with all the fixings and oven fries, salad

Friday: Tacos and spanish rice with beans

Saturday: Carrot ginger soup and quiche, salad

Sunday: Squasharoni, asparagus, something for dessert ?

Monday: BBQ black beans on sweet potatoes, corn bread, greens

Tuesday: Pasta and sauce with garlicky garbanzos and broccoli on the side

Wednesday: Pizza and salad, or breakfast for dinner

Thursday: Fried cabbage and potatoes with cottage cheese.

Friday: Veg chili stuffed baked potatoes

Lunches are leftovers, quesadillas, or sandwiches. Also, I found some great lunch ideas at the vegan lunchbox site. I am going to make her cream cheese spirals from May 01 to have for lunches with salad or veggies and fruit.

Gosh, I'm so sorry I haven't checked this thread sooner.

The taco casserole has the following:

bottom layer is refried beans (I like the black ones), seasoned & cooked ground turkey, then a layer of cheese, then a layer of corn bread (2 Jiffy boxes). Bake at 350 for about 25-30 minutes. It is so yummy!

Well, the taco casserole has just earned a spot on our menu for next week. I LOVE jiffy cornbread... and I happen to have two boxes of it as well as refried beans in the pantry!

It's really good to top with sour cream, salsa, black olives, and cheese too.

Do not ever read the ingredients on a box of Jiffy cornbread mix. It will ruin it for you. It makes the best waffles.

Ha-ha-ha! My poor husband loves jiffy cornbread waffles...but our waffle maker NEVER turns a proper one out...it always comes out in pieces and crumbs, no matter how hard he tries. He just ends up taking a spoon and eating the thing that way. Funny, as it makes every other waffle we make the proper way. *shrug* maybe the thing just doesn't like him...

I love this thread! I'm desperately trying to get more variety in our diets. I'm slowly moving away from nothing but meat and potatoes. It's not as hard as I thought it would be, especially with this thread for ideas! This is what I've got planned for this week:

Mon:Broiled gingered salmon with sugar snap peas and brown rice
Tues: pork picatta with asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes
Weds: Spaghetti carbonara and peas
Thurs: Oven roasted pork ribs with collard greens
Fri: left overs
Sat: burgers and salad
Sun: out to eat

Usually we have some fruit for dessert, this week I have pears, grapes and oranges. Lunch this week is pita with hummus and vegies, turkey pita w/avacado and tomato for dh, tuna with spinach salad and grapes and some kind of fruit maybe some cottage cheese for a treat.

Ooh, cashew hotdish recipe please?

We have to pay a huge bill (property taxes) this month and therefore things are really tight. I figured out almost a month worth of meals I can make from staples and approx. $50 worth of groceries and maybe $15 a week for fresh fruit and veggies.

18. Mushroom Barley Soup with cheesy biscuits
19. Empanadas and spanish rice
20. Sourdough Bierrocks
21. Biscuits with mushroom gravy and a veg.
22. Miso soup and sushi
23. Veggie Tofu Potpie
+potlucks (I can throw a potluck and just make iced tea and a loaf of bread or cake, cookies etc.)

Breakfasts
1. Oatmeal
2. Farina
3. Cream of wheat
4. Smoothies and toast
5. Yogurt and fruit
6. Homemade granola
7. Cornmeal mush
8. Pancakes
9. Waffles
10. Muffins
11. popovers
12. eggs and hashbrowns
13. Breakfast rice pudding

Lunches
1. Leftovers
2. Quesadillas with homemade tortillas
3. Popcorn and smoothies (tons of frozen fruit in freezer)
4. PBJ
5. Hummus sandwiches
6. Leek dip on crackers with fruit (leeks are free this time of year, so I stocked the freezer!)

Hey, making a switch here. Forgot that it was dh's birthday today when I was planning, so making him his favorite, chicken parmesan. Had a gift card from whole foods for the whole shebang! Good thing. Cost as much as taking him out! But got the bread, salad, wine, chicken, veal (sorry, I know, I'm awful. I'm allergic to chicken...) all the cheeses, sauce, noodles, and stuff to make him brownies (organic eggs, milk, and chocolate) for under forty dollars, and we'll have leftovers for a couple of days.

You cut the carrots and cauliflower about the same size, cut the squash a little bigger than the carrots. Mix them up with 1 tsp corriander and 1/2 tsp cumin a little salt and some pepper. Put it in a pan, I use a glass baking dish but anything with a rim would work. You season the chicken parts with 1/2 tsp corriander and 1/4 tsp cumin. The chick roasts on top of the veg. It cooks for about 45 minutes. After the chicken is done you add lemon juice to the veggies.

I haven't made this yet, but I do make a roasted cauliflower with lemon and it is so tasty! I had it at a middle eastern place and fell in love with it. Squash is in season so I figured I'd throw some in there. I have no idea if it's going to be any good, but I like squash so we'll see.

1. Manicotti
2. cheese tortellini with marinara and zucchini
3. grilled chx and roasted asparagus


Next week, I'm planning on the sweet potato enchiladas and homemade colzones. Yum!

How do you make your gelatins? Do you use powdered flavored jello (or knockoff brand) or unflavored gelatin & fruit and sweetener?

I used 2 packets of unflavored gelatin to 4 cups of liquid. It's just strained strawberry puree, a little sugar and lemon juice and the gelatin. I ate one today! They're surprisingly good. I've never made gelatin with fruit before. My MIL was telling me that she used to make gelatins with fruit juice, so I think I might try that.

The tuna and egg plant I made last night was.. not so great. I hate it when you try something new and it is just plain gross. I liked all the ingredients that went in seperately, but together they were not a good combination
