Rather late here... perhaps I need some moral support? People, post!

This past week, we ate:

  • leek potato soup, no-knead bread
  • pasta night: sun dried tomato pine-nut garlic with spaghetti, green salad
  • hoppin' jean, with guac and hot sauce and chips, plus fennel orange salad
  • curried peanut sauce bowl with kale and tofu and rice

  • snack plate/leftover night, with English jacket potatoes, simple fried rice (scallions and scrambled egg), etc.

I've been sick for two weeks straight, so the meals have been quick... Here's what happened in the last two weeks:

  • chana masala (chickpea tomato curry), rice
  • sweet potato and curry soup (quite tasty, has lots of rice in it)
  • pasta night: sun dried tomato and garlic with pine nuts
  • seitan shepherd's pie
  • veggie soup with homemade bread (made my own pureed "bouillon", worked very well)
  • curried peanut sauce bowl with kale and tofu
  • pasta night: tempeh meatballs
  • takeout pizza twice
My plans for this week: (note, I generally plan for Sunday night - Weds, and use leftovers and improvise for the remaining three nights. I should be planning 1-2 more meals, but usually I'm able to create a meal from what we have on hand, plus my CSA box arrives on Weds, so I have more options later in the week.)
  • brown curry with tofu and veggies, rice, sauteed collard greens
  • creole hoppin' jean, spicy cauliflower, chips, guac
  • lentils with spinach and sausage
  • pasta night: eggplant with bread crumbs
I'm still not entirely back to healthy, so I'm keeping it pretty simple. Now that my husband isn't working every Thursday night, I need to start planning another meal again (normally I just made a hash for myself and whatever the kids wanted). It may be time to resurrect the snack plate night...
