I've been doing pasta salads with lots of veggies from my CSA box. I've been getting awesome grape tomatoes, broccoli, random greens. Nothing too exciting thus far, but I just found this blog:

http://www.chefchloe.com/blog.html

There are a ton of dessert recipes, and a few main dishes that look amazing. Definitely trying them out next week.

Yum, that sounds good. We just came back from a trip and I am so sick of the bad restaurant food. I just crave simple real foods.

Last night I made a lentil loaf, mashed garlic potatoes, steamed carrots and broccoli. I used the magical loaf studio-just love that site.

Tonight was Tortellinis and green salad.

Broccoli soup is on the menu for tomorrow night.

Ooh.. I need to sub to this thread!

Yesterday we had carrot/potato soup w/home made bread. Tonight I'm thinking something with lentils and brown rice, just not sure what yet! LOL After reading the lentil thread yesterday, I've made tons of copies of the posted recipes and need to make a choice soon!

Tonight we're having pretty simple rice and beans alongside a beet and boston lettuce salad with walnuts.

I need to make something for my MIL to serve the 4 dc's Saturday night. Dh and I are going away for one night to celebrate 10 years . First time in almost 8 years that we've spent the night together "alone" . I need something all the kids will eat and something that she just needs to reheat. Dairy-free too.

So far this month I have been slacking! I work right over dinner, and I've also been doing 12h shifts mixed in

Last night I made gnocchi-sadly store bought. But a really yummy homemade sauce w tomatoes from the garden, and veggies and hemp seeds mixed in.

Dinner tonight is ds's choice b/c it was his meet the teacher day for jk So he chose falafel, hummus, pita and veggies. I'm going to make a coleslaw type salad with pickles and cumin and corriander. And I made a vegan vanilla cake w icing as a really big treat for dessert SPOILED

Last night, I made Spring Minestrone from Moosewood's Daily Specials. It didn't taste like anything! So many delicious vegetables (so much chopping!) and there's just no flavor. Tonight I'll probably just make salad, and try to figure out how to spice up the soup so we can get through this giant pot of it.

Ooh, do you have a recipe for that tofu? It sounds great!

And I've never seen that magical loaf studio site before, what fun.

Its basically the Apricot BBQ from Veganomicon but made with peaches because I just love them

Tonight I had a PTA meeting and dd had cheerleading and I only had 40 mins to make and eat dinner. So I made my version on a Vegan Ruben with a salad. It was so good.

Made a vegan quiche last night, with broccoli, tomatoes, garlic, and daiya cheese. I usually love the daiya cheese, but since I've been pregnant it's been tasting really weird to me. DH loves it and I thought it might be good in it, but I kind of wish I hadn't put it in. Oh, well. It was still good.

The perogies were just frozen that dh boiled then sauteed in a pan with garlic, onion, tomatoes from the garden and fresh spinach. It was super yummy

The nutritional yeast pasta didnt come out so great since dc both tried it and didnt want ANYTHING to do with it

It was just penne covered in a basic nutrtional yeast sauce and baked with chopped tomatoes and spinach. I thought it was decent but they didnt. Just cant get nutrtional yeast sauces past them. They really dont dig them

Ahh ok. Still, sounds yummy! Makes me want to add them to my grocery list for next week!

LOL about the nutr. yeast; my DCs don't touch it either, no matter how hard I try and DH hates it, so it's only me.. As a matter of fact I need to order some again.. (To me your pasta dish sounds good w/the sauce! )

The sauce is about 2 tbs each of soy sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar and peanut butter, a dollop of prepared ginger, a few cloves of crushed garlic, and a bit of sriracha sauce. I add that to whole wheat pasta, cabbage, peas, and tofu.

Last night we did a rainbow stirfry - tofu, carrots, broccoli, green beans, red peppers, mushrooms and purple cabbage in a homemade teriyaki ginger sauce with brown rice.

Tonight, my mom is taking us out to dinner as a thank you to my husband for installing a new kitchen faucet for her. Where to go? Chinese? Italian? Ethiopian? Mexican? Pan Asian Fusion? Gourmet Vegan Junk Comfort Food? I do love Sacramento.

Tomorrow we're having a small dinner party. I'm serving Penne Pomodoro with tomatoes and basil from our garden garnished with pine nuts, multi-grain French bread from Costco, because we're broke and I have it on hand, salad with cherry tomatoes from the garden, red wine, and I probably should contrive some sort of dessert. Any ideas? I don't have enough fresh fruit to make a pie, cobbler or sorbet. I could make ice cream, or just about anything else baked.

Later this week, I'm planning to make black bean sweet potato enchilada casserole and grilled tempeh fajitas in a chili-lime-beer marinade with zucchini, portabella mushroom, orange bell peppers and purple onions.

Today it was Lentil loaf for dinner (didn't crumble apart much, actually but DH 'suggested' to not use BBQ sauce next time as he didn't like the sweet taste in the loaf.. ), fresh mashed potatoes and green beans.

I did a lot of prep cooking yesterday for several meals to freeze and in general for this week, so I also made an awesome Curried Sweet Potato & Chickpea Stew (I threw some leftover brown rice in too)
I didn't have Cilantro but it still tasted great; I had mine for lunch and DH took a portion with him to work. I froze the rest.
For tomorrow I've got Black Bean Sweet Potato Enchiladas planned (they 'go around' these days here recipe-wise, huh? ) and I'll probably end up making a big batch of Lentil soup as I've got some carrots and potatoes that I need to use up too..
