Ah, summer!

Sunday, August 31, 2014

I'm going to make a produce run today. The best thing about summer, to me, is the fresh produce. Summer brings tasty, local, in-season (and therefore less expensive) bounty. Most of my favorite foods are summer fruits and veggies:

Watermelon
Tomatoes
Fresh sweet corn
Cherries!
Zucchini

Even my fave yukon gold potatoes are nicer in the summer -- younger, fresher, sweeter.

Yay, summer!

    I'm with you! I LOVE the tomatoes of summer. The ones in the store out of season are hard, mealy and tasteless.

This week's meal plan

Sunday, August 31, 2014

We are moving in a month, so this next few weeks, we're playing at emptying out the cupboards instead of buying new staples. We're going to be eating a lot of rice and pasta, since we've got lots of those. Of course, we'll continue to buy fresh fruits and veggies, James's coffee, etc., but we're going to do our best to use up what's here.

This week:

S: big salad
M: gnocchi
T: tuna casserole
W: pasta with peanut/sesame sauce
T: veggie curry and rice
F: James's vegan chili
S: big salad

Edit: James pointed out that we need to use up the tortillas soon, so we're changing this.

S: big salad
M: James's vegan black-bean enchiladas
T: tuna casserole
W: pasta with peanut/sesame sauce
T: veggie curry and rice
F: James's vegan chili
S: gnocchi

    I'm not moving, but I am also trying to thin out my pantry and use up what I have. Have you ever used the site Supercook.com? It is awesome for recipe ideas. You enter what you have and it populates recipes!

    Way to go cowgirl. What is the saying, it doesn't matter how many times you fall as long as you get up one time more. emoticon I could not find a horse. emoticon

Favorite vegetarian meals?

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

We aren't vegetarians, but most of our meal plans are veg, because we both feel better that way.

I could use some ideas for healthy, easy veg food. Any thoughts?

    You might get some good ideas from vegetarian teams. I'm doing a smoothie challenge, so my diet is primarily vegetarian.

If you don't mind processed foods, we buy Boca burgers our morning star black been burgers.

Whole grains, like quinoa are good protein sources. Let me know off you discover any good recipes!
