I was going to post this yesterday, but last night I realized my original plan needed some rethinking. I had planned to make Veggie Pot Pie for dinner Sunday night, but after being outside for a very limited about of time, I realized that when it's 90 degrees out, veggie pot pie doesn't sound all that great.
This is a kosher meal plan for me and my family. This means that there will be some meat for JGD and Sprout, but there will always be a vegetarian (or fish) alternative for me. We try to eat as naturally and organically as we can. This is limited some by budget, but we're doing the best we can.
*** means that we have no tried this recipe yet, but I will try to give you a review later in the week or in next week's MPM post. I know I owe you a couple from last week. I'll try to get to them for you.
Monday - Drumsticks (if they defrost in time) for JGD, still not sure what I'm eating
Tuesday - Pioneer Woman's Pasta Primavera
Wednesday - Lo Mein (chicken for JGD and Sprout and Tofu for me)
Thursday - Falafel (didn't make it last week)
Friday - Chicken
Recap of last week
Monday - Rachael Ray's Fettuccini Alfredo *** & Caprese Salad.
Didn't make the caprese salad, and wasn't a fan of this recipe. Maybe it was the pre-grated cheese I got at the grocery store.
Tuesday - Tilapia (probably picata), broccoli and angel hair (salad?)
This is an old standby that I haven't made in a while. I will say a bigger pan would have been good, and I need to work on that whole sauce concept.
Wednesday - Skirt Steak ***, portobello mushrooms, tofu?, carrots (salad?)
Turns out JGD wasn't home this night so I didn't make meat. Sprout and I had veggie fried rice.
Thursday - Falafel ***, pita bread ***, hummus, tahini
The skirt steak had been marinating from the day before so we at that instead. I used lemon juice instead of lime as that's what we had. JGD said it was good. My mom told me I totally changed the recipe. I'll have to do it the right way next time. I also did sweet potatoes, onions and green beans on the grill. Yummy!
Friday - Honey Glazed Chicken Dump ***, Gardein, Green Beans, Challah
I did make chicken, but forgot I had planned this recipe. We'll do this one this week. I made a Rachael Ray recipe instead. This is a good one to make for us because the sauce is made separate so it's not hard to do real and "fake" meat.
