Menu Plan Monday September 8th

Another week, another menu plan.  I enjoy the planning because it helps me mentally organize, but usually, things don’t happen according to plan.  The days switch, something isn’t at the market and it gets bumped back, I opt for leftovers…but almost all of it happens in some form or another.

The past week was a busy one in the kitchen for me.  I made Banana Macadamia Chip cookies and Choco-cocoa clusters for my adoption/adaption of 101 Cookbooks.  I also posted one of my all time favorite recipes, Grilled herbed peppers.  DH got a beautiful birthday cake, which I will post soon…

Long story short, it’s a good time for a simple week in the kitchen.

This week’s food is tomatoes!  It’s a great time of year for them.  I went a little tomato overboard with the Roasted Tomato and Caramelized Onions soup, and I slow roasted a bunch this weekend, too.  Since I’ve been meaning to make Natalie’s Bombay Chicken for quite some time, so that works perfectly.

Monday:
East Indian inspired
Bombay Chicken (with adaptions for dairy, corn and alcohol free)with roasted panch poron cauliflower and papadams

Tuesday:
Vegan:
Steamed broccoli with a Malaysian brazil nut butter sauce

Wednesday:
Easy:
Roast turkey with sauteed fennel and celery in a chestnut sauce

Thursday:
Leftovers for E, tomatoes and avocados for me.

Friday:
Vegan
Quinoa in a lemony thyme broth
Crispy kale Chips

Baked good:

There is currently a chocolate overload in the house (strange as this may sound) There’s a Chocolate orange cake and chocolate covered orange peels, so I’ll be sticking with something savory, most likely Hazelnut flatbreads

From my garden:
Tomatoes
Peppers
Parsley
Thyme
Ground cherries
Garlic (frozen from my garden)

From the market:
Onions
Kale
Fennel

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.

    Great menu for the week, as always (I’m intrigued by that brazil-nut-butter sauce, especially!); and what a gorgeous cake!

    Between the tomato soup and the herb grilled peppers, what a healthy and delicious sounding menu! And yet, what’s the first recipe I click on? The banana macadamia chip cookies, of course…

    the cake looks beautiful too!

  6. Veggie girl, the Malaysian sauce is a variant on a recipe from the Spice and herb bible, one of my favorites.

    Dana: my eyes go to dessert first, too!

    Sea: I’ll have to post sooner or later…I’m a quinoa fiend.
