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?
just want to say that you have a very nice website. was just surfing around and found your site. cool stuff and nice post. bookmarked and will come back later
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!
Coconut casserole?! I’m deliciously intrigued! Also, I would love to come eat at your place, ok? 🙂
I love the pic so much! it’s fresh and delightful and hunger-inducing. perfection.
Awe, thank you ma puce!
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.
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!
Thanks, Jessy! I wish I had “Appetite For Reduction”, but it’s not available in France until January 😦
If you want the book, have you checked the Book Depository or Play.com? 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.
The book depository is my favourite seller for English-language cookbooks – hands down. I just need a little more of a budget right now…
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!
Yumm! We just made a polenta and wild mushroom ragu last night. I used oyster and porcini mushrooms.
Seriously? Great gourmets eat alike I would say…
I’m very excited about that recipe 🙂
Hoping to get it up later today!
I’ll be over on Wednesday. Those are two of my favorite things!
Your sundried biscotti is intriguing.
I’m very excited about Wednesday, I must admit. Come on over!
