Weekly Menus

Last week was incredibly busy, so no time to post the menu. Had friends from out of town visiting for three nights - Anna and her husband came out to take a closer look at Portland, and we all had a wonderful time. This meant lots of running around and getting things in order. Plus a special meal while they were here. I did have a menu planned out, however, so I figure I'll just add it to this weeks and do two weeks at once.

  • Sesame noodles, stir fried nappa cabbage
  • Ooey Gooey Witches Fingers, salad from the garden (the fingers were a HUGE hit on Halloween, using half a string cheese per "finger")
  • Cheese omelets, home fries, sliced apple (breakfast for dinner)
  • Spiced red lentil soup
  • Fried rice with egg and vegetables (this is a great clean out the refrigerator meal)
  • Vegan dim sum: scallion cakes, tofu siu mai (the filling on these was wonderful, but the wrappers didn't steam properly), curry puffs, bok choy with garlic (from the garden), sticky rice, and coconut ice cream with ginger and lime
  • Fast Food - not on the list, but I was out late enough Sunday night that we decided to just go out.
  • Pasta with broccoli (fast, easy, and an entire meal)
  • Dal with garlic and cumin, carrot salad with mustard seeds, basmati rice
  • Vegetable soup, grilled cheese sandwiches
  • Chicken curry, more basmati rice, sliced pineapple
  • Potstickers, stir fried asparagus, steamed rice
  • Spaghetti with marinara sauce (made from the last of our tomatoes), salad
  • Pork with chipotle, roasted tomatoes and red peppers, arroz rojo, corn tortillas
I'll be back with a full report of Anna's visit very soon, I promise!
