Menu Plan Monday

I have one week left of intense kanji studies. Right now I'm investing around three hours per day in study time and thus chose mostly repeat and easy to make recipes for this week. I need all of the extra time I can manage!

Monday - Spaghetti and garlic bread
Tuesday - Soba noodles and gyoza
Wednesday - Greek Delight
Thursday - Tacos
Friday - Orange chicken styled tofu
Sabbath lunch - Coconut Stir fry
Sabbath dinner - Pizza (Italian pizza crust, red onion, mushroom, fresh basil, homemade sauce, Daiya "mozzarella cheese")

Last week's results:
Greek Delight - This is amazing. We had enough ingredients to make it for dinner one night and two additional lunches. SO good!

Sesame Tofu Stir Fry - We didn't like it and decided it wasn't worthwhile to change it to suit our tastes.

Ruth asked for a photo of our pizza, so here it is! I am still trying to perfect the crust; it turns out a little doughy but tastes great. Unfortunately, the undercooked crust didn't look as appetizing as the uncooked pizza. So...

My hubby took this photo and called it "the obligatory artsy-fartsy food photo."

Ahhh, but we like to see the odd photo of what you are cooking! More interesting in the long run than just a list of ingrediences :0)

I hope he enjoyed it!

Cassandra said...

LOL. Thanks, Ruth. I'll try to remember that in the future! ;)

We did enjoy it very much. Ate the entire thing in one meal. Is that good or bad?

my pizza crust recipe calls for you to bake the crust separate 10 min before adding toppings and such. Maybe try that for the doughyness

Dannie - thanks for that tip! My recipe says to bake it for two minutes before adding toppings. Tried that once and it was doughy. Increased the time to 3 minutes, same problem. I'll keep increasing the time until I figure out what works.
