All of these, and for me (who is trying to eat mindfully to hopefully lose weight), its an easy way to make sure I don't snack on high calorie snacks (hello hummus) or throw together a high calorie meals at the last minute. If I can have something to focus on it stops me thinking of other things to eat and if I have a filling dinner, I tend not to eat a lot of other stuff

Planning ahead really helps me save money and eat better, because whenever I go to the supermarket I can't help throwing a couple of bags of chips or some Oreos into the basket. It's better if I only do that once a week as opposed to most days.

I haven't shopped for this week yet, but I'm cooking a bunch of stuff from American Vegan Kitchen. Garlicky ribs, potato skins, burgers, beer battered onion rings and seitan katsu are all highly likely.

I also made chocolate chip cookies last night while watching the Oscars. Yum.

Today, I'm having: leftover tofu scramble, guac, herb roasted potatoes and toast (which I made for lazy weekend brekkie) for brekkie
Then herbed carrot soup and avocado, EB and marmite on toast for lunch
Then leftover lentils and rice with carmelized onions, spiced pits and braised kales for dinners. This is pretty much my menu till Wednesday (I know, when you live alone and cook a lot, meals can get repetitive) with some banana walnut oatmeal tossed in for breakfast come Wednesday, when my 'fu scramble guac and roasted potatoes run out.

But then I hit a grocery store Wed night after yoga and buy new stuff to cook for the next week.

I planned to make like two weeks of meals last weekend, ended up making half, so I made a bunch of other stuff this weekend:

Mac & Shews
lentils in tomato sauce, with polenta
beanloaf (the caulipots are gone but there's some gravy still - sandwich time!!)
dressing for salads (basic balsamic from AfR)
marble cupcakes

This week will be salads (I will maybe make caesar chavez dressing to mix it up instead of the balsamic every lunch & dinner), leftovers of the above, creamy mushroom fettucini from AfR, and maybe cutlets if we eat everything else.

I accidentally bought split peas when I already had some, so I'm thinking split pea cutlets with SC style mustard bbq sauce, quinoa, & some veggies. I need to buy more salad & greens, and fruit for snacks/dessert.

breakfast will be cereal when I sleep in (which is always) and oatmeal when I don't (which is never) and coffee. fruit as soon as I buy more. Mr. Spork buys whatever for lunch; I bring leftovers. I don't mind having the same thing for lunch & dinner.

I don't actually plan certain days for certain meals. I just shop for 5-7 meals, and those last a week to a week and a halfish, depending on how often we go out, eat leftovers, etc.

Just got home from shopping for these:

- Rotini with lentil sauce (Vegan Italiano)
- Cabbage & kidney beans over polenta (Vegan Italiano)
- Red curry soup (PPK)
- Curried cauliflower, potatoes, & black-eyed peas (Supermarket Vegan)
- Cauliflower chickpea tagine with couscous (Urban Vegan)
- Portobello burritos (Urban Vegan)

I guess it was an Urban Vegan kind of week, because I was also going to make the spicy Indian eggplant, but the grocery store was sold out of eggplant.

I really need to start doing this. Weeknights seem to be shrinking, and it doesn't seem like things will be improving anytime in the near future.

But..don't you guys eat leftovers?

I have Mondays off so that's my Sunday now.
-Yesterday I made the Wild Rice & Roasted Beets salad from AFR to bring for work lunches. I added lentils too for some extra protein.
-Then I got my hubz to make Joanna's nuggets for dinner, and since it makes 4-5 servings, we'll be having them again tonight. I also made a big batch of zucchini potato thyme mash as a side, and we'll steam some frozen veggies - either asparagus or green beans.
-Tomorrow I'll be making a big pot of indian veggies and beans with a prepared curry sauce I bought and we'll have that for the next 2 nights with brown rice.
-Friday will be take out of some sort.

I always plan my meals as well. It definitely saves money (no last minute takeout because nothing is prepared or even thought of) and I feel that it saves time as well. We are super busy after school so I do as much prepping as I can earlier in the day. Here is our menu this week:

Sun - takeout
Mon - curried cabbage and peas (AFR) over coconut rice
Tue - 2 bean chili over mashed potatoes
Wed - leftover curried cabbage and peas with fried potatoes
Thur - leftover 2 bean chili turned into nachos with cheddar spread
Fri - ????

We are going away on Saturday so I haven't planned on Friday. It may be takeout, sandwiches or leftovers depending on what else is going on that afternoon. I have also only listed what I will be eating this week since the rest of the family is omni. I always either re-use our leftovers or have them for lunch during the week. If there is a ton leftover, I freeze it for another week.

I love leftovers.

I made the detox soup and it made easily enough for 6 meals. It is delicious and I can eat it until the weekend or freeze 2 servings. I also made melomeals 3 ingredient veggie burgers with the remaining adzuki beans and they look so good. Plus I can't recommend Dianne's Avgolesslemono soup enough. That is tomorrow's lunch me thinks. I still have a serving of artichoke soup too.

And while I was making the detox soup, I had enough time to roast sweet potatos, garlic and yellow peppers (I got 5 lbs of sweet potatos for $1.50 and 4 lbs of yellow peppers for $1.50 at the market in the produce about to spoil section).

A week of cheap eating might be able to make up for my dinner at Pure Food and Wine ($70 pp yikes!)

I've got a big pot of Lotsa Veggie Lentil Soup from AFR simmering on the stove right now. I'll have a small bowl tonight and the rest will go in the freezer for future lunches and quick meals with a sammich or sumpin'.

Friday night, I had a bunch of basil I had to use up and so I made a dish from Garden of Vegan, the sundried tomato pesto for linguine which came out all right. I made fresh sundried tomatoes for it, had them drying in the oven all Friday. I find I had to add a lot of salt to it for flavor. I think it's the tofu in the recipe maybe that's holding it back. I dunno. It used up my basil nicely though and I do love the roasted pine nuts sprinkled on top. I think were I to make it again, I'd go for a straight up pesto sans the addition of soft tofu, although the soft 'fu adds some bulk to it.

I also have leftovers of Mom's Noodle Soup from AVK and sandwiches from Joni Newman's Cozy Inside (the tofu egg salad). I think I made those Thursday or Friday night.

Later on this week, I have the fixins to make the Quinoa Tabouleh from YRR (along with some pita crisps from VCON, I'll season the pitas with salt, lemon pepper and garlic powder which is my fave variation of the pita crisps--or should I say the only one I tried but I was like--stop right there! because I loved them)

And I'll also make the Tofu Marsala from YRR with some roasted asparagus and mrsbadmouth's mashed potatoes with roasted garlic, which seems to be my fave mashed tater prep. YUM.

It's March break week so I don't know if that means work will be busier than usual or less so. I guess I'll see. Anyway, always love to find time for cookin'

Tonight: pav bhaji with tofu and brown rice
Tomorrow: kabocha squash-swiss chard saag with chickpeas, maybe more rice
Tuesday: vegetable soup and bread, where the soup is made out of whatever vegetables are left in the fridge
Wednesday: probably take out!

We do meal planning Wednesday to Wednesday, and this week we're leaving on Wednesday to go to Massachusetts for a friend's wedding. Hence the only half a week posted!

I was going to make the tofu marsala tonight with garlic mashed potatoes and roasted asparagus, but I forgot to marinate the tofu. I'm marinating it now and will make it tomorrow night and will have enough for four meals.

So, since tofu marsala didn't pan out in time for this evening, I needed something quick where I could use the limited pantry I have now since I didn't go food shopping this weekend and so I made the tempeh and white bean gravy with baking powder biscuits for dinner (from VwaV), as I was craving that like crazy anyway. With leftovers for more meals through the week! Yum.
