While I LOVE the idea of meatless once a week, not to mention some catchy alliteration, a specific day was too confining. I ended up freezing fresh stuff, extending leftovers and perishing perishables.
So instead, we shall have #MeatlessOneDay and #LeftoversRoulette when needed. More flexibility, fewer biology experiments, and maybe some new hashtags along the way. Here's what's cooking this week.
Did I mention I have missed my oven? Roast chicken, baked sweet potato fries (minus the peachy catsup) and a small batch of stuffing (a half package of bacon instead of Portuguese sausage, and 1/4 of an Asiago cheese bread loaf that was on the verge of going very badly). Small in this case means a very full 9" x 9" pan for three people. I'm practicing for Thanksgiving.
Not Meatless Monday
Orange Salsa Pork Chops (fresh pork chops), Chinese Chicken-less Salad (enough for the whole week and keeps well), Jasmine rice.
Sabih from the Jerusalem cookbook. Think of it as an open-faced sandwich and salad at the same time. Plus hummus and fresh pita from the Falafel Stop. This is becoming a habit, but their fresh (warm) pitas are simply ono.
Chicken Chili Verde (from a salsa container), kinda homemade tortillas and guacamole. Braised kabocha for balance.
Chicken Divan, with the leftover chicken meat from Sunday. Waste not.
Korean Chicken Soup, with kim chee on the side. Cold weather likes spicy soups.
Find your #MeatlessOneDay. What's your go-to no meat dinner? Have a good week all!
