Last night we had another house showing so it was veggie dogs and sweet potato fries with some raw veg.

 

The kids are gone for the weekend so dh and I are enjoying things the kids don't really dig on lol

 

Tonight is falafel wraps with homemade garlic hummus and veggies. Tons of hot sauce

Tomorrow is Carribean rice and peas(which they ate the last time so I may make extra to freeze

 

I only did a teeny grocery shop for next week so I got to sit and meal plan soon confused.gif

Sat dh and I were under the weather so we didn't have anything.

Last night we had the leftover falafel with roasted potatoes and cauliflower and a huge bowl of salad

Tonight I made a slow cooker black bean soup with crackers and chips my mil had leftover from a party. We had a plate of cut up veggies with it

Tomorrow were having curry with the leftover roasted veggies from Sunday. We love curry night

Dinner tonight is lasagna/salad/garlic bread I'm taking to a friend who had a baby last weekstillheart.gif

we are having this tonight. it smells yummy. i added veggies and chickpeas, because it looks like we have two allergic to soy here...

http://onceamonthmom.com/slow-cooker-coconut-tofu-curry/

Also planning to do a few more of her recipes since they look right up my alley. I want to be a freezer mom but the truth is i just love fresh foods. We do need to stockpile some as i am due in early may. I cannot believe how many pregnant mommies we have on here right now.

 

I am also planning a copycat sandwich from a local restaurant with fresh mozz, arugula and balsamic....
 but mostly really boring stuff like taco salad, homemade hummus and veggies, eggs in a nest, soup and salad. Too big and tired to do much else.


In love with their dad . mom to (dd 5/20/07)notes.gif, and (ds 3/27/09)moon.gif ,and (dd 5/9/11) love.gif, and (ds 5/14/13) nak.gif

Last night was slow cooker sloppy lentils. Ds and Dh had theirs on a bun,I had mine in leftover taco shells from a few nights ago. Dds wouldn't touch theirs eyesroll.gif

 

Tonight I'm making a squash and asparagus laska soup based on a Jamie Oliver 15 min recipe. Sesame street just sung a song about how great asparagus is so we'll see if that will help someeat.gif

Last night I made lentil loaf/mashed potatoes/roasted cauliflower/green bean mushroom saute and an amazing arugala asparagus avocado and orange salad. So yummy.

 

Tonight is a baked butternut squash mac and not-cheese and a beet/asparagus and orange salad. We'll see if the kids eat the mac and not-cheese eyesroll.gif

Last night I made these Buddha Bowls served over quinoa and some baby spinach that needed to be used up.  Now DS is a good eater, but I expected him to balk at this.  Guess he was hungry from soccer practice because he asked for seconds!

 

Pretty yummy; although I didn't have nutritional yeast for the dressing.  I assume I can get that at Whole Foods?  What section of the store?

Those look super yummy. We get nutritional yeast from the "green" section of our local grocery store. I would assume they'd have them in the whole foods.

 

Last night we did black beans and rice with tons of veggies and topped with avocado and olives. A huge salad to go with it

 

Tonight is hasselback potatoes,mini quiches w mushrooms and red peppers,leftover beets and a huge salad again

Everyone is talking about all these great soups--yum yum yum! I love to make soups. My favorite soup cookbook is called 'Wai Lana's Favorite Soups.' It's all vegetarian and has awesome recipes. I've never made a flop from that book - they always come out great. My favorites are the veggie chicken noodle and the creamy cashew soup. Mmmmmm.. Happy cooking everyone! smile.gif

Last night was chickpea, potato, and tomato stew with sauteed swiss chard; WW naan on the side.  We had some bad storms roll through last night so a comforting soup/stew hit the spot!

Last night was a cold noodle salad.  Napa cabbage, cucumber, baby spinach, asparagus, and carrots tossed with soba noodles and a sesame-like dressing.  Both DH and DS had seconds.  I'm still amazed that my seven-year old doesn't hesitate on these veggie meals and usually gobbles it all up.  I feel so lucky to have easy eaters to cook for!

Sandwich with melted cheddar, pesto, apples, sautted onions and lettuce.  I made mashed turnip for a change from potatoes.  


There is a battle of two wolves inside us.  One is good and the other is evil.  The wolf that wins is the one you feed.

 

Book and herb loving mama to 1 preteen and 2 teens (when did that happen?).  We travel, go to school, homeschool, live rurally, eat our veggies, spend too much time...
