Tiffanie: this week's menu

It's hot! And the husband is sick, so I'm making him some garlic tomato soup to kill all the germs.

My plans include:

  • cajun hoppin' jean, cause it's yummy and easy and we both love it. We eat it with chips and guac and hot sauce and roasted sweet potatoes and maybe something green.
  • curried peanut sauce tofu and kale bowl. Cause we're vegan. And it is really really good. Also I have a bunch of kale to use up.
  • tempeh meatballs and spaghetti. New recipe, I usually make beanballs, but this sounds interesting. It includes pasta, so the kids are happy.
  • mushroom potato tofu stew with miso gravy. An old favorite from Isa, so very good as leftovers. Brussels sprouts on the side.
  • no-bake energy balls (peanut butter, oats, honey, coconut, chia, etc)
  • quick pickled beets for salads
  • vegan blondies cause I need more temptation
  • fermented mustard, if I can find some seeds... maybe a trip to Penzeys is in order
  • smoothies all over the place, and popcorn. The kids like both, and popcorn is a whole grain. :-)

Tiffanie: this week's menu

I didn't get around to writing this up, but this was the plan, and it was all tasty. :-)

  • spaghetti with garlic, sun dried tomatoes, and pine nuts. A delicious and easy dish! Toasted pine nuts; about a head of garlic, pressed and toasted in 3 Tbsp olive oil; 1/2 cup of sun dried tomatoes, soaked and chopped; some pepper and salt and parsley, all tossed and gobbled up. Well, not by the kids, they don't love such intense flavors yet.
  • snobby joes: lentil based sloppy joes. Love this recipe from Veganomicon. Fennel and orange salad.
  • broccoli tofu stir fry, rice, roasted seaweed. One kid ate the broccoli, the other one ate the tofu... I ate it all.
  • curried split pea soup, spiced indian basmati rice, fennel and orange salad. The salad is a repeat whenever I have fennel on hand, as it is my favorite way to eat fennel. And the CSA keeps giving it to me... The rice is a new recipe, and it was quite good. Lots of spices in it, plus onions and raisins and grated carrot. It starts with sautéing chopped almonds in oil, so those are especially delicious.
