Tiffanie: this week's menu

First week of kindergarten! Plus one husband who wants to experiment with the vegan paleo diet. I shall bang my head against the fridge a few times now.

Menu plans for the week (ignoring the husband, mostly):

  • mushroom tacos and fixings, corn tortillas
  • veggie burgers and tater tots, watermelon, macaron cookies
  • bok choy and chickpea saute with toasted cashew nuts, quinoa pilaf with currants and almonds
  • peanut noodles, baked marinated tofu, beet salad
  • millet spinach polenta with sun dried tomato pesto, some sort of salad (more beets?), roasted veggies if I have time
For Mr. Paleo, I purchased some extra items: Field Roast chipotle sausages (vegan), Yves sandwich meats (vegan), Field Roast lentil sage loaf (vegan), brazil nuts, roasted pumpkin seeds. 

My CSA box this week: 
  • Strawberries
  • Scotch Kale
  • Red Cabbage
  • Leeks
  • Green Oak Lettuce
  • Green Filet Beans or Potatoes
  • Mystery (Tomatoes, Summer Squash or Green Bell Peppers)
  • Dill
I'm going to have to trade that dill for something else. The strawberries will go the first night. The kale may go into a tofu scramble with chipotle jam. The cabbage would be good in this recipe for Red Wine Braised Cabbage with Apples -- you add some Field Roast sausages on top and it's really hearty.
