vegetarian meal plans

Check what you have before pulling a meal plan together. Repeat. It may seem like the most obvious of steps, but I can’t tell you how many times I skip the physical step of opening the fridge and then end up planning an entire meal around a spinach that there are only 5-skimpy leaves of. Doh.

I checked the fridge this week…

Soba Noodles, Gingered Bok Choi & Peppered Tofu Crisps in Miso
Spaghetti in Broccoli Cream Pesto
Eggplant Veggie Burgers | Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Beets
Summer Minestrone (last of the season?)
Garlicky Kale with Olives & Pine Nuts | Quinoa | Lentils

In other life news, I just wrapped up a HUGE chunk of work that had been weighing heavily on my plate for the past month. I am feeling optimistic about what lies ahead in food and the subsequent day-to-day life. Also have a little bit of special on the horizon – my husband’s birthday (which we must knock out of the park this year) and a chili contest (my first ever).

Don’t forget to check out my twitter feed (@aneelee) for the up-to-the-minute pix, exclamations and occasional grumblings on my day-to-day.

vegetarian. mama. love to cook, read, knit, take pictures and make things. places where food, memory, and culture intersect are my favorite.


  1. Ooh, the soba noodles and bok choy sounds awesome. Do you use a recipe, or just wing it? I’m thinking of attempting it this week, since I am sick of bok choy stir frys….

  2. Your menu sounds so yummy! I have to get back to planning…we eat so much better when I do. And as a vegetarian family, we can’t just fall back on the “chicken and veg” meals so many others do! But oh, it is so worth it! Doing a hearty (vegetarian, of course!) stew tonight to use up the droopy veggies in the fridge before I shop tomorrow. Time to plan! Thanks for the reminder!
