vegetarian meal plans

I owe my family a bit of an apology for the my lacks in the kitchen. I have been winging it for far too long and when I piled busy on top of it… well… um… bad things happened. I threw together a “dinner” this past Sunday that was pa-the-tic. An amateurish salad that had all sorts of wrong going on with a side of something and a mushy grain. Ugh. I was embarrassed and I am determined to not repeat.

So, the busy has been shed and I am now ready to hunker down. I picked up my fresh box of veggies last week and was delighted to find some of my favorites – sweet potatoes and chard. That wretched okra made its way back in, but I have this ginger-lime thing and I am hopeful.

Other things that made it into the box:

green beans
baby arugula
kohlrabi
endive
chard
cucumbers
yellow squash
zucchini
sweet potatoes
peppers (hot and lots)
eggplant

The green beans had poor company during Sunday’s aforementioned dinner. Arugula has made its way into a lunch salad. The butternut squash made a lovely soup. As for the rest of the stuff, I have this planned:

Sweet Potato and Gruyere Turnovers
Garlic & Chard Soup
Okra with Scallion Lime & Ginger | Jasmine Rice
Kohlrabi Slivers with Almonds
Bhaba Ghanoush (sp?)
Squash Stuffed Enchiladas with Roasted Tomatillo Salsa
Potato and Chickpea Stew

I still don’t have a plan for the endives, but I shall come up with something.

Catch you all on the flip side of Halloween celebrations. 🙂

Be kind. Be patient. Eat better.
