Tiffanie: this week's menu

Feeling lazy this week, so I'm adding some "nights" to encourage the kids to build a meal they enjoy. Instead of demanding cheese quesadillas at every turn.

My plans include:

  • nacho night. Trying out a new vegan quesa blanco recipe, and we'll do black beans and guac and lettuce and scallions and fried mushrooms.
  • vegan sloppy joes.  It's a lentil base... maybe the kids will eat it? I dunno, but I'm craving some more messy tomatoey meals. Butter lettuce salad.
  • peanut noodles, baked tofu, cabbage slaw... a reliable favorite.
  • pasta night: I have a bunch of homemade tomato sauce left over from last week, so I want to make it into a puttanesca with lots of olives and capers. 
  • sweet potato hash with eggs for my solo night, since I never get tired of this with variations.
  • chipotle sausage hash -- still a backup meal. It's a potato and sausage hash, with a tahini miso gravy. Sounds good to me! Maybe with pancakes or waffles?
  • mini omelets. A new recipe, vegan, using tofu and chickpea flour as the base. Seems like a fun way to build wraps or sandwiches for lunch.

  1. The vegan queso blanco sauce was really delicious. Hard to say what it tastes like, but it hits all the yummy notes in your brain.

    The sloppy joes were awesome. I cheated a bit and bought brioche buns to eat it on, which was really good.
