Menu Plan Monday

 This week's focus: Zero Waste from our CSA box and eating a more plant-based diet. So, vegan or egg-only meals (2 dairy allergies and 1 dairy intolerance in this family of 4), and meat once a week.

Monday: Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Chickpeas, Mushrooms, and Onions

Tuesday: BBQ Tofu Bites, Roasted Sweet Potato and Sunchokes (both courtesy of CSA box)

Wednesday: Mujadarrah

Thursday: Sister Kate's Red Lentils and Sweet Potatoes

"Simmer red lentils with a cinnamon stick, 2-3 thin, peeled slices of fresh ginger, and a bay leaf. While that's simmering, sauté cubes of Japanese sweet potato (also called batata) and diced red and yellow peppers in some oil. You can also include yellow onion if you want something else to balance out the sweetness of the lentils and cinnamon. Add some turmeric towards the end. When that's done, take the cinnamon stick, bay leaf, and ginger out of the lentils and add in the fry pan mixture. Also add diced celery incl the leaves if you have them. Simmer until everything is soft. You can leave it chunky or blend it. Add salt to taste."

Friday: Alton Brown's Deviled Eggs, Veg from CSA box, French Onion Soup

Saturday: Mettwurst, Pan-Fried Onions and Potatoes, Sauteed Garlic Spinach

Sunday: hunt and peck

Goodies: Vegan Blueberry Oat Muffins 

My work-at-home lunches: Salads from CSA box, fruit, freezer bean burritos, or PB & J
