It’s been a very busy summer!  We just returned from week up north, and after all that greasy fattening resort food, we need to get back into the meal planning routine!  We’re stepping up our vegetarian intake this week, and keeping our carniverous night to Friday only.

For lots more fun menu plans, visit the Org Junkie.  You won’t be sorry!

Monday: Big bowl of noodle soup & salad, veggie burgers for the kids

Tuesday:Broccoli polenta served with “meat” (seitan) with broccoli & spinach, salad (recipes from Veganomicon)

Wednesday: Out for dinner with the family, back to school shopping for the kids!

Thursday: Homemade pizza

Friday: Mayonnaise-chutney/curry chicken, rice, sauteed veggies

Good morning! I’ve been missing in action for a bit here, but I’m back this week. It’s mid April, and around here it’s time for Passover preparation. I’ve written a little bit about that over at the new Playdate website, but keep your eyes peeled for recipes here.

This week it’s all about using up food in the refrigerator and freezer! Next week I’ll have a full Passover menu with recipes, for those that celebrate, so come back and see!
