Monday Meal Planning

As a follow up to my post about meal planning with Pinterest, I thought I would occasionally share our weekly dinner schedule. Using a little bit of Pinterest, some old favorites, and including less complicated dinners to throw together (this week: tacos), meal planning is really getting easier.

This is what’s on the menu this week:

MONDAY: shahi paneer & peas

TUESDAY: kale, cannelinni, & veggie sausage soup (adapting a Rachael Ray recipe so we can use up an abundance of kale from the garden)


WEDNESDAY: tempeh tacos (corn tortillas, tempeh, shredded cabbage & carrot, mole, crema – or maybe avocado and pico)

THURSDAY: lentil coconut soup with a side of sliced mango


FRIDAY: kale, onion, & cheddar frittata with smoothies (perhaps our own recipe for avocado banana smoothies)


SATURDAY: BBQ tofu sandwiches with caramelized onion & cabbage with a side of carrot sticks

SUNDAY: date night dinner out!

2012 Homies

We’ve missed you, faithful readers! Sorry for the unannounced blog hiatus. A few people were worried by our silence and I feel bad about that. I have been out of town for work and while I was gone Jess and Levi were under the weather. We are still here!

We are super excited to have our little blog nominated for Apartment Therapy’s 2012 Homies in the Healthy Cooking Blog category. We don’t expect to win, but if you enjoy our blog please head over there, we’d love to have your vote! Even if you don’t go to vote, the Homies are a great chance to find wonderful blogs you might not have on your list yet. You do need an account to vote, but I can’t think of a better site for it.

And for those of you who were missing the chicken updates, I have a special moment between Levi & Lenora for you.
