You too can participate in Menu Plan Monday, just go over to I’m an Organizing Junkie
Ok, I’m posting my draft on Sunday. I actually had time to think about menu planning, though I have skipped out on some weekend cleaning.
Last week went pretty well, though Friday we ate thai food with friends, I sure do love that red curry.
Tuesday: Indian Cauliflower and Kidney Bean Stew with Coconut milk and brown basmati rice from Fresh from the vegetarian slow cooker by Robin Robertson p.75
Wednesday: White Veggie Chili – a combo of a few recipes. It is my first time making this, so try at your own risk!
- 1 lb great northern beans
- 4 cups veggie broth (chicken-less flavor if possible)
- 1/2 chopped onion
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 3 garlic cloves
- fake chicken or seiten (I’m using trader joe chicken strips)
- 1 can green chilis
- lime juice
- some blend of : cumin, oregan, coriander, cayenne pepper, cloves
Tuesday night I’m going to put the beans in the slow cooker with broth, then in the am I am going to saute the onion and garlic and dump everything else in with the beans till dinner time. Wish me luck!
Thursday: Boca burgers, cascadian fries, and salad – having friends over for dinner
Friday: Slow cooker nut loaf, sweet potatoes baked in another slow cooker and steamed green veg
This would be the same nut loaf I have avoided making the past 2 weeks – only cooked in a crock pot. I saw a meatloaf recipe cooked in one and it can’t be that different, right?
Saturday: dinner out?
Sunday: Morningstar farms corndogs and crock pot corn chowder
