Meal Plan Monday : What’s on your plate?

Though I haven’t stopped planning our week’s meals, it’s been forever since I’ve  actually published a Meal Plan Monday, n’est-ce pas? This is a week of trying some new recipes and relying on old favourites.

Monday : Carrot, Sweet Potato & Coconut casserole. (I’ll be sharing the recipe for this family-favourite later in the week.)

Carrot, Sweet Potato & Coconut Casserole

Tuesday : Polenta with Wild Mushroom Ragu and Sun-Dried Tomato Biscotti.

Wednesday : Seitan Buffalo Wings and coleslaw.

Thursday : Left-overs

Friday :  pizza night

Has anyone guessed which new cookbook I have?  I need to make a few recipes before I can properly share what I think about it, but I’ve got a good feeling so far.

Also, there’s a holiday sale over at the Thora Thinks store (where you can purchase a copy of the great children’s book I reviewed last week, Garlic-Onion-Beet-Spinach-Mango-Carrot-Grapefruit Juice).  There’s also a free winter-themed colouring page up for grabs as well.

Will you be trying any new recipes this week?

  1. I tried a new recipe today: creamy asparagus over toast from 30-minute vegan. So easy and good and PERFECT for the frigid weather we’re having!

  2. I am impressed at how well thought out your meals are. I usually pick a few recipes for the week; sometimes I make them and sometimes I don’t. I just wing it half the time. Wednesday’s meal sounds yummy, I can’t wait to hear how it turns out.

  3. your meal plan sounds scrumtrulescent, Shelly. i am not too sure what new cookbook you have (i just bought Appetite for Reduction, but have yet to have a chance to thumb through it. shameful, i know….) but i can’t wait for your review and for the casserole recipe – it sounds soooo super gooood!

      • If you want the book, have you checked the Book Depository or They offer free shipping to all of Europe, and I have been very happy with both stores (the Book Depository ships to virtually every country in the world except for Denmark these days – what’s up with that?!). This is where I get most of my books (and Amazon, of course – but they do add postage..). 😉

        Your meals for each day sound really good, but I’d specially like to join you for dinner on Tuesday. 😉 I wish I was organized enough to plan out my weekly meals, too – most of the time, I decide on the last minute.

  4. The weeks meals all sound wonderful, but the polenta is the one I’m most attracted to. There was a time when I planned out all our meals, and it was comforting to know what to shop for and what to cook each night. Now every meal is a surprise, and I can’t seem to plan it out any more. Perhaps I’ll try to come up with a plan for next week.

    • I don’t tend to plan much in the summer since it’s whatever is ripe or looks good. I need more structure in the cooler months, though, since sometimes I just don’t know what to make!
