It has been a while since I have written up a menu plan here on the blog. In fact I can honestly say that since changing my diet to plant-based, I have been quite remiss in planning what we eat, relying more on what is in the garden, in the fridge or what I feel like just before meal preparation. I've been a slacker.
Today I am limited in what I will be cooking. There's the no oven issue and I haven't been shopping for a while. So tonight it has to be whatever is in the pantry or fridge. Or maybe I could just take out some leftovers from the freezer (that's looking good at the moment). I'm grocery shopping tomorrow whether I like it or not.
So here goes.
Main meals this week:
Monday- eggplant and green bean curry, split pea dahl and brown basmati rice.
Tuesday- Chilli with rice or corn chips/ tacos, salasa and guacamole.
Wednesday- Potato salad and kimchi
Thursday- Girls night out with Grace and Hope. Yum!!!
Friday- Scrambled tofu with tomatoes, chilli sauce and toast
Saturday- Zucchini and chickpea burgers with tabbouleh.
Sunday- Pearl barley and vegetable soup.
That's the plan at this stage but hey, it's only a list and no one cares if inspiration strikes and I cook something else. I'm definitely locking in a nice dinner out on Thursday night though.
Something good I have eaten already today is homegrown popcorn. I decided to shuck a few cobs and pop them at morning tea time. I think they look quite pretty. Some ears were pollinated better than others but that's how it goes.
And with more luck than skill, I estimated the capacity of the saucepan just right (this time).
Now, time to cook the curry and dahl.
Bye for now
