veggie meal plan - 12/8/14 | aneelee.com

Only a few more weeks until the new year! We have business as usual around here (work, school, eating, and all the in between). I am pretty excited to cook from my weekend’s library find – Vegetable Literacy by Deborah Madison. I am very pleased with its simple recipes and flavor pairings and am going to make the most of my 3-week borrow window. I instantly spotted quick fixes for my CSA stash and can’t wait to […]

We did the unthinkable over the weekend. We had to throw out produce. A cucumber, a couple of tiny eggplants, some peppers, and those darned bits of onion that I can never seem to find when I need them went from the crisper drawer to the garbage. There may have even been a zucchini in there. Sigh. It was scary and sad and a clear indication that I am not keeping up with my stash. I’ll […]

cooking with kids / vegetarian meal plans

We are trying out a new list on the refrigerator door this week. My hope is that it will make it easier to decipher what food options are available inside the doors in the morning when we are all pointing in different directions. I am assuming that there will be some changes as we work our way through the list this week, but here’s a PDF of it just in case you want to give […]

Down and dirty this week since I can’t even begin to wrap my head around the lists that are brewing. So much ahead in the coming weeks that even the 10yo’s lists are spiraling a bit out of control. This list is a good one. It will help keep our bellies feeling good while we rocket through the week: Leftovers Red Beans & Rice (inspired by this recipe) Cumin Cauliflower Soup (inspired by this) Roasted […]

spring break | aneelee.wordpress.com

It’s Spring Break! We popped over to the Big D again to peek at the latest addition to the Ramirez family roster and are now ready to revel in Spring. We have our potted garden to tend to, lots of craft projects, our first spring canning project, miscellaneous SXSW events and we must squeeze in some tennis and kite-flying. I try my best to keep us eating at home on weeks like this. The key […]

Starting the grand old month of February off with a pantry week. It’s like that. The challenge from now until May will be my dwindling tomato stash, which are my crutch on weeks like this. Gonna try to hold myself to one jar. I do have a tiny bit of lettuce and cabbage left that I am using to supplement the stash of sweet potatoes, potatoes and onions that I have on hand. Wish me […]

I’ve come to the slow realization that my daughter is much more disciplined than I am. She’s one of those kids that makes her bed in the morning and that is acutely aware of the time of the day and how much time she has left until “the next thing.” She is also (even in spite of herself) very much a kid that sometimes just doesn’t dig what’s for dinner. She doesn’t mind beets and […]

vegetarian meal plan - november 4, 2013 | aneelee.wordpress.com

Yesterday’s list is a lot of what goes on in the weekly handwritten notes that I keep in my journal/list/everything book. That list gets transformed into a slightly more sane plan for the week on my computer where I can move things around. If I am in a good kitchen groove and fitting my kitchen time in without much struggle, I put them into buckets – Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snacks. If I am not feeling […]
