I was going to cook curry and roti but haven't been able to get out to grocery shop, so we'll get one delivered instead.

Starter: Puff pastry thingies filled with the walnut and mushroom pate from Vcon (recommended). Ruccola with a balsamic vinaigrette.

Main course: purchased beet patties, hasselback potatoes, mushroom sauce, steamed broccoli.

Dessert: raspberry crumble with alpro whip.

The starter was great, the main and dessert didn't live up to it, but they were good. We had red wine with the meal for the first time in ages.

I've just made the doubles from Caribbean Vegan for the first time. I've made the bara and cucumber chutney already, and the chickpea stew is currently simmering on the stove. So looking forward to them - everything tastes amazing!

I cooked Ethiopian for the first time, and it turned out great! I made the Saucy berbere lentils and Vegetables in berbere spices from Vegan Eats World. I used cabbage and carrots for veg, and made them without tomatoes. The injera recipe was from a Swedish baking book, and made from wheat and barley flours - I'm sure they taste nothing like real injera, but they're good. I was afraid of being disappointed after reading about how everyone seems to love Ethiopian food, but I was not. We just finished eating and I'm already looking forward eagerly to having leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

Welcome to the wonders of Ethiopian food amonic! Your life will never be the same.

Last night I made the VEW Jerk Roasted Seitan, which was delicious. I served it with reheated Island Peas and Rice, and some mixed Jamaican curried veggies.

Thank you, M. Oligosporus! I'm trying to cook myself tired so I won't miss it when they turn our water off next week (we plan to eat a lot of freezer meals and convenience foods to cut down on dishes). It's not working! That Ethiopian food made me want to drop out of college so I can stay home and cook all day long...

Hey amonik, no need to be so formal; just call me Rhiso! Yes, we should all quit our jobs and school and cook Ethiopian food all day!

We tried our first Field Roast Celebration Roast last night. I baked it with big chunks of carrot, celery, sweet potato, and shallot, lots of fresh parsley, and a marinade of vegetable broth, red wine, olive oil, garlic, rosemary, and cracked black pepper. It was very good. We both liked it much more than the Tofurkey roast.

I'm thinking spaghetti with parsley, roasted garlic & miso pistou sauceyness, plus leftover pita turned garlic bread. That, or beer brat & green cabbage over rice or quinoa.

I might make spring rolls if I'm not too lazy. Otherwise a salad with spring roll ingredients.

Lazy green salad with a sprinkle of coconut bacon for fun, and cheesy cauliflower soup -the soup is delicious!

Tacos! Corn tortillas, refried pintos, soyrizo, shredded romaine, tomato wedges, sliced green olives, and lots of guacamole. Served with plenty of hot sauce.

Tacos are always a good idea.

I have leftover blackeyed pea cakes and the amazing collards from Vegan Comfort Food.

Peanut butter cups and a peppermint vanilla decaf latte for dessert. Yes, I went out in the snow to get iced coffee.

now i want tacos and iced coffee. mmmmmmmmmmm!

tonight's dinner was miso-tamari-maple glazed tofu over wasabi mashed potatoes, with a side of gingered collards and caramelized garlic-maple carrots (all drizzled in a maple-tamari-miso-white wine reduction.). basically, i decided to get all fancypants this evening when making dinner. woooohooo!

Spinach artichoke lasagna, because I am able to make this out of things I have in the house, and I can turn the oven on to bake it. It was -6 this morning when I went to yoga. I am not going back out there!

it's going to be 15 tonight here, Rhizo. i don't know if i could handle -6. spinach artichoke lasagna sounds like a good (and tasty) way to stay warm!

tonight we're having bowls: on the bottom = daiya cheddar 'n red onion smashed potatoes, second layer = sauteed broccoli, third layer = buffalo tempeh cubes (MBM's recipe), and it's all topped off with cashew ranch 'n fried shallots.

Tofurkey pepperoni pizza.

I have a decaf gingerbread latte for dessert. (I had it made with one pump f syrup and it's pretty sweet. How on Earth do people drink them with 5-6?) waiting for Molly drama to settle before relaxing with it.

Last night's lasagna turned out fabulous, if I do say so myself.

Tonight I think we will have miso soup, green salad with VEW Ninja Carrot Dressing, and sesame noodles.

I feel so clever. The leftover pasta, chickpeas, and roasted brussels sprouts (with this sauce: http://www.yourveganmom.com/your_vegan_ ... oking.html) of a few nights ago were repurposed perfectly into chickpea-noodle soup and spicy tempeh & sprout hash. If I could only be such a smart cook all the time.
