Is it weird that I look forward to planning my menu and making my shopping list for the week??! Here's my week, all from AFR, yum:

Monday: Chipotle lentil burgers with onion rings
Tuesday: Up-side down lentil shephards pie
Wednesday: Eggplant chickpea curry with cranberry cashew biryani
Thursday: Veggie pot pie stew with sweet potato drop biscuits
Friday: Probably eating out at Spiral Diner if I'm lucky (mmmm Mitch sandwich, chocolate and salted caramel ice cream - my usual)

Not at all, I'm the same way. I actually like grocery shopping as well, wandering through the produce section grabbing whatever catches my eye, plus all the stuff on my list to begin with. Most people I know hate grocery shopping, and my sister-in-law once offered to pay me to do her shopping for her since she hates it so much but took back her offer when I told her I wouldn't buy the crepe on her list.

M: Sloppy joes, sweet potato fries, kale
T:Beans and rice, steamed broccoli, chard
W: Quinoa chili
T: Pasta with spinach, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, olives, and a creamy red lentil sauce, and roasted cauliflower.
F: Leftovers

I love planning menus and grocery shopping, too! I do have to control myself though or I spend way too much money. Here is our menu for the week:

Monday - pot pie stew with sweet potato biscuits (AFR)

Tuesday - buffalo tempeh (AFR), mashed potatoes, 40 clove chickpeas and broccoli (AFR)

Wednesday - mango bbq beans (AFR), cornbread

I go food shopping on Thursdays so only have these 3 days planned so far. Just as an aside, I only post what I am eating because the rest of the family is omni. This week, though, everyone is eating the veg meal on Monday and Wednesday!!!! I have convinced hubby that, in order to save money and pay off our debt so he can retire early, we need to eat more veg meals and he said ok! They already love chickpea piccata and upside down lentil shepherd's pie so I hope they like the pot pie stew and the mango beans.

Yesterday was tacos.
Today will be Indain: lemon rasam, some sort of sambar, maybe a cucumber salad or cooked spinach dish, and of course rice.

I'm going to my friends for the afternoon and evening tomorrow so I've done my Sunday cooking Friday and Saturday night this week. I made:

Arroz con seitan and Salvadoran marinated slaw to go with that.
Seitan potato chipotle tacos to eat through the week.

I also have some lentil quinoa stew I made last Thursday in the freezer in case I run out of stuff before I have time to cook again. I was planning on making a split pea and veg soup to freeze for more quick meals but I'm not sure I'll have time before tomorrow is out.

I also have Buttery alfajores (my favorite cookies) I made a batch of those last night. They get a bit messy but they do freeze well and I don't care if the caramel runs a bit, I lick it all up, I love those cookies so much.

I love this thread! I'm such a meal-planning dork. Probably because our local grocery store has online shopping w/ free pickup, so I can be a complete lazy asparagus and still get all my grocery shopping done.

Sunday: buffalo tempeh (AFR) wraps with broccoli slaw
Monday: black bean cornbread pie with guac
Tuesday: takeout night (husband teaches late); sesame tofu and spring rolls from nearby Chinese place
Wednesday: fettuccine & asparagus in lemon cream sauce (from The Vegan Girl's Guide to Life)
Thursday: Hawaiian tofu pizza
Friday: Philly seitan sliders (Vegan Diner)

Desserts this week: mocha java cake (Vegan Diner) and mexican hot chocolate pudding (random NYT recipe)

I was inspired by current CookBook Challenge but I was too lazy to participate. However I decided too cook each week from different cookbook that I have. And for this week I choose "Vegetarian Basic" by Cornelia Schinharl. It's Germna vegetarian cookbook and diary is present in almost every recipe. I choose ginger and lime risotto (easy to veganize, I will omit parmesan and change butter for olive oil) and home made pizza wit artichokes and roasted zucchini but instead of ricotta I'm going to use mixed tofu with cashews (simplified tofu ricotta from VwaV). Also I'm planning to make hot red lentil spread and eggplant spread with olives, capers and sun dried tomatoes.

I haven't totally figured it out yet, but I'm making butternut rice, blackened tofu, and jerk asparagus from AfR for tonight, and I'll have leftovers of that tomorrow and probably Tuesday. Wednesday and Thursday, I'm thinking something Indian. Friday, maybe burritos?

Last week was a bust. Didn't make a single thing on my list.

I'm just shooting for the Vegetarian Times Saag Paneer Tofu (I don't know why they couldn't just call it Saag Tofu since there is no cheese in it!). Maybe I'll try that homemade veggie broth.
