Making the hummus bowl from IDI tonight - seems like a good warm weather dinner, especially if I make the tofu in my countertop convection oven and quinoa instead of rice.

It will also be my first time making hummus from scratch.

Jojo made the seitan broccoli bbq sauce bowl thing from IDI on saturday and it was soooo good that I've been dreaming of it all week. Think I'm gonna make it tonight if I have all the ingredients.

We had the worst day ever at work and I ate a pickle, leftover lentils, and a package of smoked tofu. Get off my lawn.

Awe, I'm sorry for your awful day vijita. At least you managed to eat a vegetable and lots of protein, and pickles and smoky things are some of the tastiest things. I am on my couch and in my house and in a different country from you and therefor no where near your lawn, but I wish I could have fed you tonight and hope life gets better soon!

We had tamale pie with purple tomatillo salsa and watermelon margaritas.

We had the roasty soba bowl from IDI, with beautiful purple cauliflower I got at the farmers market. I love that recipe (so fast! so delicious!) and it was extra pretty tonight.

Sweet potato/millet/bean burgers with roasted red peppers and avocado on homemade buns. And roasted corn on the cob on the side.

Too much effort for a weeknight.

I'm making some linguine with a sauce that I'm not quite sure about, but I call it my "clean out the fridge" pasta sauce. It usually starts with some garlic and olive oil, then later some pasta cooking water and nooch, along with sauteed veggies and spices and lemon juice (or balsamic if I don't have fresh lemons). It's surprisingly tasty if you can get the texture right (creamy not gluey). This time I'm going to throw in some smoked tofu that I made the other day with my stovetop smoker. Other things that need to be used: arugula, fresh tomatoes, cremini mushrooms, parsley. If I'm feeling up to it, I might chop some canned artichoke hearts for it as well.

I'm all aboard the linguine train, by the way. I've said goodbye to spaghetti and various brands of spaghettini, because I hate ending up with teeny portions of all different kinds of pasta in my pantry and I just like linguine better. The other day I just decided to always buy the De Cecco brand of linguine that I love and leave it at that. It's more expensive, but pasta is a once a week thing here so not too costly. My frustrating pantry reorganization efforts, including spilling lots of bags of half-finished spaghetti, might have had something to do with this. Screw you, spaghetti!

My parents sent me home with a boatload of veggies and herbs from their garden, so I threw together a casserole:

Polenta, red lentils, yellow squash, chopped tomatoes, and garlic topped with a basil-pecan pesto. I love and miss throwing things together! It was fun!

Tonight and last night was kale, white bean and tomato soup from the freezer and toasted bagels. Tonight included a bit of wine.

Salad and a baked potato. I feel guilty choosing the lame fall back eating out option when I'm at home. But if I were eating this at a restaurant or dinner party, it would probably be a sad salad without dressing and a plain, dry potato. Whereas I had a potato topped with Earth Balance, fresh chopped garlic chives and dill, fresh ground black pepper and sea salt. My salad was full of veggies from my garden and the farmers' market and had red beans and nooch for protein and a nice balsamic dressing.

^ sounds good to me!

After a stressful day, we got prepared chana masala from the farmers' market with spicy tomatillo chutney, and I also wolfed down some smoked tofu and picked at market cherry tomatoes.

And I definitely had a big glass of wine tonight.

Stir fried tofu, eggplant, kale and green onions with rice noodles and a thrown together sauce that we'll call Thai-ish.

Home-made pizza for a (personal) Saturday meal/baking project. Dough from scratch out of the Baking With Julia cookbook, cashew "cheese" from a site that seemed to be replicating the Cashew Ricotta (it tasted like ricotta??), spinach, pre-roasted red peppers, and black olives. The sauce was pretty simple. . . Just some leftover jarred spaghetti sauce. But oh my GOD it was soooo yummmyyy and this was the first time I truly loved a vegan pizza. The cashew sauce was just so amazing and it browned up so nicely.

LOL, yeah! IDI is an easy one for me to remember but others run together (AVK, AVC, etc).

Tonight is roasted beets with cabbage and potatoes with smokey tempeh crumbles from Vegan on the Cheap - but with yves sausage patties instead of tempeh. Surprisingly yummy.

Last night was Chana Masala with some broccoli just because we had it. Tonight blackened tempeh tacos with a broccoli slaw because we have that and not cabbage and chipotle cream. And a boatload of avocado.
