Menu Plan Monday

I had a lot of fun picking this week's menu. I tried picking recipes that used ingredients we already had. It was about half successful!

Monday - Greek Delight - (New recipe) This will use up the last of my basil plant.
Tuesday - Soba noodles and gyoza
Wednesday - Soft shelled tacos
Thursday - Spaghetti
Friday - Riblets and mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy (gravy is a new recipe)
Sabbath lunch - Sesame Tofu Stir Fry (new recipe, rolled over from last week)
Sabbath dinner - Pizza (Italian pizza crust, red onion, olives, fresh basil, homemade sauce)

Last week's results:
Macaroni and Cheese - This one was a no go. I really wanted to like it, but the coconut milk didn't really work. We didn't buy the recommended brand so maybe that was the problem.

Italian pizza crust - Awesome! Our pizza ended up a bit differently than planned as we ended up not having all the ingredients. Whoops. I made the pizza with this crust, homemade pizza sauce, red onion, fresh basil, a smattering of olives, and Daiya mozzerella cheese. YUM! We loved it so much (in part because of the fresh basil and partly because of the crust) that we'll be making the pizza again this week.

It sounds like you are doing a fine job with your vegetarian recipes. It always amazes me that you can make such good meals without using meat! I don't think that I could get that creative.

At any rate, the pizza you made sounds yummy! I wish that you could send me a slice through the computer, tee hee. :)

Thanks, Lady Rose! If I could send you a slice through the computer, I would. ;)

Ooh, so many tasty sounding meals! That stir fry looks beautiful. It's nice to find another veggie meal planner. :D

Good luck with that! I really am not that fond of cooking...
But, I do like home cooked food :0)

You should post a photo of the finished article?

Kiersten - Thanks! It's nice to "meet" you!

Ruth - Thanks! I'll try to remember to take photos this week. It's hard to know before tasting if it's actually worth taking a photo. ;)
