They seemed like a total cop-out for dinner, but I snuck in some greens and dressed ’em with homemade salsa. All is well. Bellies are happy.
We had a busier weekend than expected and the cooler weather triggered all sorts of knitting urges that, unfortunately, were tended to in place of my weekday meal prep. It is going to make for a slightly busier Monday night, but I still think that we can pull off a solid week of homemade meals. Here is what I have tentatively planned: Meals Monday – Seitan con Papes | Frijoles | Arroz Tuesday – Leftovers […]
Back to our regularly scheduled programming… Last week left our kitchen a bit of a disheveled mess. My ambitious meal plan did not match the craziness that our family calendar held. Luckily, this week is more tame and I am looking forward to some afternoon and morning time in the kitchen. After careful assessment of fridge and pantry contents, I’ve decided that this is what we’re doing Meals Chickpea Salad Sandwiches | Spaghetti Squash Alfredo Vegetable […]
I am learning more and more about this thing called discipline and where I’m good at it: – Cooking from scratch? Hells yeah. – Work? Solid. – Housework? So-so. – Food? Aside from my mainstay – being vegetarian – not so much. If I want a pickle, I’ll have a pickle. If I’m craving hummus, I’ll make it. And sadly, if a taco is not jiving with the mornings urges, I give in. I had […]
We had to skip our CSA pickup this past weekend and I have not had time to hit one of the other local markets since, so the fresh veggie contingent in our house has been reduced to the handful of staples that are essential to a Mexican kitchen – tomatoes, onions, cilantro, potatoes, and chiles. So this week, I am going to hit my week of cooking with my mama in mind. Comida mexicana all […]
Just last week I was going on and on (and on) about how much I LOVE the short winters here. Scarves and warming the house with the oven and boots and snuggling under warm blankets. Oh well… all I can hope for now is that the weather outside is short-lived because I am not ready for it to be warm again. My cravings haven’t quite caught up with 60-70º temperatures either, so I have stews […]
This week and all its busy is going to flash by so I’ll just get right to what I am hoping to pull together for us this week in the kitchen: Meals Winter Squash Soup | Classic Veggie Sandwiches Enfrijoladas | Rice | Skillet Roasted Sweet Potatoes Hummus Wraps with Roasted Red Peppers, Greens & Olives Kale, Cabbage & Carrot Chopped Salad Chana Masala Other Stuff Banana Oat Muffins Chipotle-Honey Granola Pumpkin Puree Vegetable Broth
There was no okra or zucchini in our CSA box! We do have lots and lots of greens, so my goal this week is to get it into every meal. Meals Roasted Tomato & Fennel Spaghetti | Spinach & Apple Salad Tortilla Soup (which I should really post a recipe for) Kale & Feta Quiche | Mixed Lettuce with Sourdough Croutons & Lemon Vinaigrette Tofu & Quinoa with Green Beans Vegetarian Pho Everything Else Banana […]
