I hear you on that! I didn't own it during the challenge, but since I bought it, I've been making 2-3 meals a week from it. LOVE!

Yesterday I made some sofrito (VV) and spice mix (YRR) for some recipes this week. Prepped my cilantro and spinach (wash 'n' spin). Prep stuff to make today's cookin' easier.

Today, I'm making the Tofu Scramble from Yellow Rose Recipes with herb roasted potatoes and toast for a "lazy" Sunday big breakfast.

I'm also making the Tempeh in Sofrito and rice with pigeon peas for dinner.

Yum!

Maybe I'll also make those maple pecan brownies with white chocolate chips in my brownie edges pan from Eat, Drink and Be Vegan. I made them for a bake sale recently and they were so delicious I was sort of sad to give them away. I wanted them all for myself and maybe today, I shall have them!

Tonight's dinner: caulipots with the mushroom paprikas (AFR)
Also making for the week: Curry based on the vegetable korma (AFR)
Later this week: scrambled tofu burritos

I pretty much go by making enough so that the leftovers and big batches get me through the week. Boring but functional.

Today, I'm making the spicy pinto bean and blue potato salad which I haven't made since my testing dayz on AFR. I remember really liking it at the time.

Later this week, I'm making some lemon-herb tofu and roasted potatoes with a green alongside and probably a spicy sauce that I like from How It All Vegan that you use to jazz up tofu and veg and serve over soba noodles for lunches. Quick and filling! I'm not too much into cooking lately but I have a dinner party coming the weekend after next for which I will be embarking on a full-on two-day cooking frenzy Sat & Sun, so I think I'm saving my energy for that.

I haven't been planning ahead and making my lunches and dinners the past few weeks and it is KILLING my diet. And pocketbook.
I have no ideas or time for this week either. Darnit.

Everyone's week sounds yummy. The theme of my week is pantry clean out. Every meal uses at least one pantry or freezer item.

1. Tofu Scallops with Linguine in Basil Cream Sauce (Veganize This) and Spinach Salad. (Pantry item = whole wheat linguine)
2. Enchillada Burgers with Guacamole (Best Veggie Burgers on Planet) and frozen veggies. (Pantry items = frozen veggies and leftover enchillada sauce)
3. Lentils with Coconut and Spinach (One Spice, Two Spice) and basmati rice. (Pantry items = lentils, frozen spinach, shredded coconut, basmati rice)
4. Meatball Subs and Spinach Salad (Pantry items = frozen veggie meatballs)

I had a Sunday cookin' frenzy yesterday!

Here's what I made: White bean and roasted garlic soup from VwaV, Black Pepper Buttermilk biscuits (subbed plain soy yogurt for buttermilk) from a non-vegan cookbook called Simply Heartsmart Cooking and Quinoa Tabbouleh from YRR.

That was in the morning, then I took a little break and went back to the kitchen in the afternoon to make:

Tofu *Masala and Zucchini and Olive tacos with lemon garlic yogurt both from AFR and oatmeal raisin cookies from Peter Berley's The Modern Vegetarian Kitchen (I think it's called). With plenty of leftovers for the week!

*Not sure what this one is called but it's the curried tofu in marinade that I always make to go along with these tacos.

Oh, and I forgot I also made a batch of the VwaV Veggie burgers and the cheezy mayo from American Vegan Kitchen to go with those. I ate one burger yesterday and froze the rest for future use. Yum!

Today, I'm just making the Vietnamese Rice Noodle Salad with Grilled Tofu from AFR. I remember that one from testing and loving it. It'll be my lunches for the next few days. That's all I'm cooking today though, no seven or eight hour Sunday cooking binge like last weekend.

Today I made the corn and lima bean salad from Viva Vegan (spicy and delicious) for lunches
and for dinner, I made some food from my too neglected book Vegan Soul Food and I had the cumin mashed potatoes with carmelized onions, the roasted rosemary tofu cubes and the garlic broth braised brussel sprouts. All together, an excellent and flavorful meal with leftovers for dinner this week.
