I just made an awesome veggie soup with veggies found in my kitchen. I cut everything up super small so it would cook quickly! I have about 3 bowls worth, which is fine since it's just me eating it and I'll finish it for lunch tomorrow. I used one potato then added as much of everything else as it looked like it needed to balance out.

Grilled chilaquiles! It was like magic! I had this sad lump of frozen corn tortillas, and I couldn't get them to come apart, and I was thinking "what am I going to do with you? Make scrambled tortillas?" and then I thought "wait, that's chilaquiles!" I brought my blender out on the patio and grilled garlic, onions, serranos, and very quickly grilled tomatoes. Threw that all in the blender with cilantro, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper to make the salsa. I brushed the tortillas lightly with oil, crisped them on the grill, then threw them in an iron pan on the grill and coated them in the salsa. Meanwhile, I also grilled up some marinated VV white seitan, red peppers, more serranos, onions, mushrooms, and pattypan squash to use as toppings. I also put an opened can of refred beans on the grill which was hilarious. I've heated up canned beans before on the grill, but they were thinner and came out fine. The refried beans were so thick they were being propelled slowly out of the can by the heat building under them! I gave up, brought them in, threw them in a bowl, and put them in the microwave. I served the grilled veggies and seitan on top of the chilaquiles, and the beans on the side. It was good.

That sounds great, Rhizo!

We had salad and stir fry with Hodo 5-spice nuggets. Those nuggets are amazing!

That does sound magical! I love chilaquiles! Your post now has me putting them on my list of stuff to make....

I made Sloppy Buffalo Beans and the Quick Burrito Filling, both from the Great Vegan Bean Book. Now I need to make more tortillas.

Last night was a bowl with amaranth/quinoa mix and sesame mustard greens I had leftover from lunch plus smokey soy curls I was making for julialegume's lunches this week.

Tonight, I'm thinking roasted tomato & sweet pepper soup (since I had those roasted and ready to go) or parsley/sage pasta.

Today is typically taco day, but I'm thinking I want to make savory crepes with some sort of cremini mushroom filling and aioli...

I'm making biscuits to encourage myself to eat my leftover potato soup, which is yummy but a little boring.

Homey comfort night in our house- I made chickpea cutlets and lemony potatoes from the Veganomicon and green beans with a tiny dash of liquid smoke (creating the magic that is green beans+bacon, minus the bacon). Omniboyfriend ate and loved all of it-Huzzah!

I'm ready to try real food. If it fails, at least my husband will be happy. Fresh corn, tomato, and basil salad with a chili-lime vinaigrette, mashed potatoes with punk rock chickpea gravy, and eggplant dengaku (I know they don't go together but I need to use that eggplant and I have all the ingredients).

Tonight we're having the rest of the roasted tomato bisque and grilled cheeses on better bread, plus chocolate coconut cream mini tarts for dessert.
