    So far this week:

    Sunday: homemade pizza, veggies and dip

    Monday: vegan Irish stew (made with seitan and Guinness!)

    Tuesday: scrambled tofu with vegetables and homemade cornbread

    Wednesday: upside down lentil Shepherd's pie (made with lentils, peas, carrots, onions in a kind of gravy, served over sweet potatoes mashed with cashew cream)

    Tomorrow will probably be black bean soup.

    I second this! We try to eat veg at home. DH will eat fish/ chicken on occasion, but not dairy. Usually that's out though. We only have a few tofu recipes we love though...:)

    If you ever share recipes, let me know too!

    Today I tried a new recipe: seitan pot roast in the slow cooker. (Seitan is a kind of imitation meat, made from wheat gluten.). You put onions, parsnips, carrots and sweet potatoes in the bottom of the slow cooker with veggie broth, then a circle of foil, prepare the seitan and put it on top of the foil, then cook it all for 6 hours on low. Then I made gravy with the broth to serve over the thinly-sliced seitan, and steamed some broccoli as well. It turned out to be very good. I saved the leftover slices of seitan in a container with the gravy, and put the rest of the seitan in some more vegetable broth to keep it from drying out.

    Tomorrow is my oldest son's birthday meal and he's asked for Indian food. So for the family we'll have green salad, samosas, spinach-chickpea curry, butter "chicken" (really chunks of seitan), curried tofu, spiced chickpea poppers, rice, and for dessert, chocolate cupcakes and apple crisp. (I know, the desserts don't really match but that's what he wanted.)

    For Tuesday night I have some black bean-onion filling that we had in buns on Friday and I think I might use it up in wraps. I'll cook some pepper strips and add salsa and spinach to each wrap.

    What a rough week! DH had bronchitis at the beginning of the week, DD had a stomach bug followed by strep (for the second time in 3 weeks!) and I had a horrible cold. We did a lot of laying around and eating whatever was quick and easy (ie pizza and fast food). Finally starting to feel better so we went shopping and out to eat today.

    And I'm SOOOO EXCITED! We bought a new gas range and fridge today!!! Only the stovetop of my range worked for the last year so I'm totally stoked! And my fridge is one we hauled up from the basement and I swear its from the 80's! They will be delivered next Sunday and I can't wait to make my menu out with some oven goodies!!!

    Fajitas, meatball subs, spaghetti are on our menu this week.

    I made a big pot of 15 bean soup with some smoked turkey and ham. It was so good we had it two nights in a row! It's all gone.

    Haven't decided next weeks menu yet. I have my eye on some "new to me" recipes.
