Well friends, we’ve made it through another week! We had one obstacle this week but I’m proud to say we overcame it! We had a wedding to attend on Saturday night and had chosen our meals prior to deciding to do veggie month. We tried to get our orders changed to vegetarian but it was too close to the date of the wedding. It would have been easy to just ignore the challenge and eat the meat we ordered, but instead we planned ahead and made a delicious vegetarian curry to eat at home before we left for the wedding. Then we just ate our salads, rolls and vegetable sides at dinner, along with some candy from the candy bar
We also went to the Farmer’s Market with my in-laws this weekend and stocked up on delicious produce!
So what have we been eating this week?
Thursday: Black Bean Veggie Burgers with Grilled Potatoes
Friday: Happy Hour dinner- Margarita Pizza and Parmesan Risotto Balls
Saturday: Veggie Curry with Potatoes and Green Beans (I made the sauce pretty much the same way as the Bean & Mushroom Curry but with an extra scoop of red curry paste)
Sunday: Black Bean and Mushroom Enchiladas with Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup and Homemade Enchilada Sauce
Monday: Salsa Omelets and roasted poatatoes (The salsa had corn, black beans, tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, jalapeno and avocado in it- perfect omelet fillings if you ask me! Hubby is the expert omelet maker and he made one giant one for us to share. He added a leftover black bean burger and brown rice, and some fresh mozz as well!)
Tuesday: Asian Style Wheatberries (It was just as good as the last time I made it!)
Wednesday: Another curry! We just can’t get enough This one had tomatoes, potatoes, green peppers and onions. Hubby made the sauce a little thicker by adding less broth and a bit a cream cheese!
Quesadillas with black bean burgers, hummus & veggies
Egg & veggie scrambles with wheat toast
Buckwheat crepes with greek yogurt and fresh fruit
Buckwheat bread with peanut butter
Some things I’m thinking about for next week:
Barley & Veggie Soup
Pesto & Veggie Grilled Cheese
Veggie Pot Pies
Another tofu experiment! Any suggestions?
We’ll see what happens! What’s the best veggie dish you’ve eaten this week?!
