I thought I'd start this thread even though all we had tonight was spaghetti made with jarred sauce. We were supposed to have lentil bolognese sauce made in the crockpot, but we didn't get home from the grocery store until late. By the time I got the crockpot going and it cooked for 6 hours it would have been 6:00, too late to feed our crew. We normally eat at 5. The irony is that at 4:30 the kids at peanut satay over pasta (ala fast food from Trader Joe's) so we didn't eat until 6 anyways. Oh well.<br><br>
I think tomorrow we'll have white bean tostadas and tortilla soup. Yummy.

Tonight was an easygoing night: black bean soup (from the freezer), tortilla chips and garlic toast.<br><br>
DS1 and I also made zucchini spelt muffins from Vegan Brunch today (using frozen shredded zucchini from our garden!). They're really tasty!

Tonight I made an Asian Pasta with Broccoli and Black Bean Sauce (from 1000 Vegan Recipes). My 5yo son and DH both loved it and it was very quick.

Last night I made a quinoa salad with black beans, frozen corn, red onion, tomato and avocado. I made a lime-cilantro dressing for it. It will be lunch today and dinner on Wednesday as well.<br><br>
Tonight it's pasta with garlicky sauteed spinach and pine nuts and some tomatoes thrown on top. I might toss in some chick peas too.

Oooo, I'd like to try this. Can you share the recipe. Alas something at the chard I planted in my garden. I'm afraid it would happen again if I planted more. However, this recipe just sounds so good.

We had our cinco de mayo meal last night since dh is home for dinner on tues<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
We had the pinto bean/masa dumpling soup with corn, black olives, and grated soy cheese on top...chilis for dh and I. With a plate of carrot sicks, cukes, and broccoli pieces. I haven't made the soup in awhile and I forget that when I do everyone clears their plates without complaining<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
dh found a lone baby bok choi in the back of the fridge that NEEDS to be eaten up..so Im thinking a tofu stir fry of some sort on brown rice

Another disaster meal last night! Wanted to use up some oooooold Soy Curls that I found lurking in the pantry, but it turned out they were actually too old = rancid! I took one taste and was so bummed to have to chuck the whole panful. Ugh. Then the Spelt Chive Biscuits I made out of Vegan Brunch were absolutely inedible. I think there is a recipe typo because it calls for 2 tsp of baking SODA when I think it clearly meant baking POWDER - baking soda is soooo salty and they were just AWFUL! I just saved the braised greens for another night and we got Thai food. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag"><br><br>
Tonight I think it's going to be savory french lentils from ED&BV with chickpea pancake and the aforementioned greens. Wish me better luck!
