I know, I've been MIA again (and again and again...shy.gif) but I'd like to pick up where I left and get back into my weekly meal planning!

The former dinner thread of late spring/summer looked deserted by now so I figured it's safe to start a new one for this time of the year!

 

I've got leftovers from the previous dinner, so for now our week looks like this:

Mo: Cabbage Soup w/ chickpeas 

Tue: Pasta w/tomato sauce and 'meatballs' (using the recipe from Vegan Vittles)and a green salad

Wed: Black Bean Enchiladas

 

Not sure what the rest will bring... I'm sure another soup with home made rolls.. We'll see.

 

What about you?lurk.gif

Tonight is cauliflower and leek soup, probably with some cheesy bread.  It's rainy and bleak here so perfect soup weather.  yummy.gif

Oh I never combined cauliflower with leek, that sounds yummy! Do you have a specific recipe or what's your ratio for those vegs? I might have to try that soon!

Grilled cheese sandwiches + lentil vegetable soup.

 

Was just going to be grilled cheese + steamed veggies since it's a busy night, but it's raining and bleak here too, so soup is a necessity and I will find time to make it.

i got the idea from the newest edition of sunset magazine, it's not a vegetarian recipe in there, but i like to use recipes as ideas, not guides or follow-by's.

i also made red velvet cupcakes tonight with beets (from sunset) but made them vegan!

I used this recipe:

 

http://plantfoodfabulous.com/2012/04/cauliflower-leek-soup.html

 

My cauliflower looked a bit *puny* so I left out the 2 cups of water and I'm glad I did...it would have been too watery.  But otherwise, the flavor was good and DH loved it.  Always a good thing!  Oh, and I also forgot to buy white wine so I left it out.  But I think it's worth adding though if you have some around.  smile.gif

Thank you! -I hear you on DH approving dishes being a good thing! ;)

 

Tonight I changed plans around and we had spring rolls, baked tofu, white sticky rice and broccoli stir fry with onions in a mix of Hoisin sauce, mirin and rice vinegar.

Tomorrow I plan on making Isa's Split Pea soup from 'Appetite for reduction'.

Lately we've been doing a lot of comfort foods. I've also gone gluten free and vegan so whatever were having needs to adapt easily

 

Shepardlesss pie using leftover refried beans and lentils

Mustard/maple syrup baked lentils

tacos with homemade tomatillo sauce

chickpea noodle soup

thai tofu red curry

 

While at my grandmas we found puffballs so I made a puffball/asparagus/mixed mushroom sautee. Kids weren't huge on the puffballs but did try them

Ugh, sorry, totally slacked in posting again! These past days I pretty much just threw together what came to my mind spontaneously... I'm trying to cook from McDougall's Quick & Easy cookbook right now, just because I'm trying to go a bit more low fat.. which didn't hinder me from baking a batch of chocolate chip cookies from 'The Joy of vegan baking' today! LOL (Ugh, already 1 cookie comes out to 170 calories, holy moly! Before I did the calculations I already devoured 2, yikes! I immediately walked another mile with Leslie Sansone, thinking I've walked off at least almost 1 cookie at least that way! ROTFLMAO.gif)

 

Anyway, I've written down some meals from the book for this coming week, I'll just have to make it final which one is for which day.. Hubby's been working these past 2 nights so yesterday I made 'breakfast for dinner' for the kids with pancakes and tonight they just had some pasta while I had some rye bread with mock tuna, a green salad and 4 carrots.

Congrats on going vegan! winky.gif Any particular reason? How do you like being gluten free? From what I read in some recipes, it can be quite expensive, no?

I feel a lot better without the dairy and gluten. I've never loved eggs so I def don't miss them. I did have some slips on Thanksgiving...and paid dearly for days after. Brutal. SO NOT WORTH IT greensad.gif

 

I haven't found a cost hit YET. But I also haven't bought any different pastas or such. Just rice noodles for stirfry and such which we bought anyways

 

I've been eating A LOT of sauteed kale salads with nuts/seeds and such

 

Butternut squash red lentil thai curried soup

Chickpea noodle soup-w-out the noodles for me

 

Tonight is mexican stuffed peppers yummy.gif

That's good that you're feeling so much better and haven't experienced a big bump in the wallet for going gluten-free! 

I just thought because of the recipes I've read all requesting all those different flours and stuff and when I looked last time at the store how much those things were, holy moly, I was just glad I didn't need to go that route! LOL

These past 2 nights we had 'chik'n' noodle soup with fresh home made rye bread and tonight we'll have roasted bell pepper potato soup and a big green salad. Originally I planned on making the dish as a 'paprikash' with the potatoes in the pressure cooker, but it turned out too liquid-y, so I turned it into soup! Good thing we all love soup here! winky.gif

I still got ~5 big zucchinis and 2 big red bell peppers here with which I'll need to figure out what to make... I also have a big portion of cooked quinoa in my fridge.. Not sure yet if I'll attempt to make some bean burgers with it or what... (We sometimes just eat it with almond or soy milk for breakfast.)

Bumping this back up....

 

Last night I made an Indian style potato and okra dish.  I had an open bag of okra in the freezer that I wanted to use up.  DH was out of town so I just heated up some whole wheat naan for me; will make some raita to serve with the leftovers tonight.

 

DS had soccer last night so I needed to feed him quickly while I was prepping the curry.  He had a cheese and tomato quick quesadilla, baby carrots, and a pear.  eat.gif

Thanks for bumping it back up, Kate!

I always forget to post here and still suck with planning my meals in advance! shy.gif

 

I've been cooking a few dishes from Kathy Hester's "The vegan slow cooker"; some success, some failure.. The 'Mix & Match Jambalaya' (Sunday) was ok but no big rave.., the 'Sweet Potato White Bean soup' (Monday) was an epic fail!dizzy.gif Not sure what went wrong.. I followed the recipe to a 'T' and my family didn't like it! *sigh* It was a tad too watery for my taste as well and I would have made a few things differently myself.. What else... Oh yeah, I've tried the 'Chick'n seitan' (past weekend)... meh, still not a fan of Seitan! The only thing that was accepted by my DD was when I turned some of the 'cutlets' into breaded 'nuggets', but still not with big rave, so I won't make it again!..

 

Yesterday we had some pasta with a creamy tofu 'dressing' to go over, combined with some sauteed zucchini strips, onion and small tomatoes. I also made Lindsay's (Happy Herbivore) crustless pumpkin pie and some coconut 'whipped cream'. OMG, it was sooo good!!!yummy.gif

Tonight we'll have potato leek soup with home made sour dough dinner rolls.

Ugh, these past days were again just an go-by-ear thing.. We had a big green salad w/eggplant 'bacon' (Isa's recipe from AFR) and baked tofu twice in a row; mainly because DH brought 2 huge heads of lettuce from the market the other day and I have NO space in our tiny (European) fridge!..

Breakfast for dinner is something the kids love, so we had that as well a few times during the past weeks...

 

Today we'll have baked potato wedges, green beans, chick'n nuggets and some more green salad on the side.

Tomorrow I'm thinking of making a black bean/sweet potato casserole or make them as quesadillas...

Last night was maple roasted butternut squash and Brussels sprouts.  Served along quinoa tossed with toasted pecans and dried cranberries.  I made a dressing for the quinoa with olive oil, maple syrup, lemon juice, and grainy mustard.  Very seasonal and yummy!

I made a potato and parsnip soup with sage the other day, it was fantastic... I simply mixed potato with parsnip, sage, water and a little bit of almond milk, salt and pepper, and let it cook for 30 minutes, it was delicious!

Mmmm...love any kind of potato soup!

 

Last night was an improv stir-fry.  Cooked some brown rice in veggie broth.  Sauteed garlic, ginger, broccoli, and cauliflower and then added a half a cup of veggie broth, few dashes of soy sauce, glug of rice wine vinegar, and thickened with a bit of corn starch.  Not too shabby!

Tonight I'm attempting red lentil patties,roasted cauliflower and prob roasted potatoes(tho I'd really love mashed the combo of peeling and mashing is just too much work lately lol)

 

Tomorrow night Dh isn't home for dinner so it'll end up being something quick that the kids will eat w-out hassle(can of soup with extra veggies added in prob)

 

I've also got black bean soup with avocado planned. Prob for Friday night after my u/s. It's quick and filling.

I LOVE butternut squash risotto!!!  But DS apparently has an aversion to butternut squash.  I guess I could leave it out of a couple portions for DS and then mix it in with the rest for DH and me.

 

I think that soup sounds delicious!  Will definitely have to try that....

 

Last night we had sauteed butternut squash and Brussels sprouts; served alongside quinoa, pecans, and dried cranberries.

 

Tonight will be leftovers.  I will give DS the last of the spaghetti and pesto from the other night with some baby carrots or something.

 

Tomorrow is sweet potato and apple soup; served with whole grain baguette, blue cheese, and apple slices.

 

I was apparently feeling quite "autumnal" this week.  eat.gif
