365 days of dinner: April 13-26, 2009

April 26th, 2009 at 07:54 pm

Lots of dinners to catch up on...

Monday, April 13, I made veggie burgers (actually made them for once rather than using the ready-made ones) Smile:

Tuesday we had our perennial favorite, pizza:

Wednesday, April 15, I made a recipe from a new cookbook called "Vegan Fire and Spice," seitan and broccoli in a spicy orange sauce:

Thursday we had my personal favorite dish, Pasta della California from the Veganomicon cookbook, with Morningstar buffalo wings chopped up and sprinkled on top:

Friday, April 17, we picked up some deli foods at Lund's and took it down to Lake Minnetonka to picnic during the sunset (we had a rental car and wanted to do something different!):

On Saturday we had a friend over, and tried out some new recipes. NT made fried risotto balls (amazing), and I made vegetable ragout from Vegan Fire and Spice. I wish I'd taken a pic of AS's dessert, peach upside-down cake with bourbon sauce...

Sunday (April 19) NT made fresh pasta for lunch, and I made a veggie bolognese sauce to go over it:

That night we went to a restaurant in St. Paul, Sajiya. I took pics of the sake flight AS and NT ordered, the fried potato-edamame appetizer NT had, the gomae spinach I got, and the beautiful bento platter of vegetarian specialties that NT and I both had.

Monday night I made bean-and-rice burritos:

Tuesday the 21st was NT's night to cook, and he made a spicy szechuan "beef" and broccoli (the beef was Morningstar veggie steak strips):

Wednesday our friends NJ & CC cooked for us at their place. We had pasta fagioli and oven-roasted asparagus:

Thursday, April 23, we had "pizza burgers" (with sauteed onions and peppers, pizza sauce, and mozzarella):

Friday we got food from one of our favorite takeout places, a Vietnamese restaurant called Kinhdo (all this restaurant eating has been great fun, but we're all running pretty low in spending money! Smile). Here's my favorite, mock duck & potatoes with broccoli, and AS's standby, basil stirfry:

Yesterday, April 25, I just had to take a photo of the French toast AS made, using her own homemade French baguette:

Last night's dinner was Tofurkey roast with mashed potatoes, gravy and blackened Brussels sprouts--and it was nice enough to eat out on the balcony!

Tonight, we had another recipe from Vegan Fire and Spice: Three-Alarm Lo Mein. Third great recipe from that cookbook so far!

    Yay, glad you guys enjoy seeing them! It's really turning out to be a fun project--and will be a valuable source of meal ideas if we ever get stumped for what to make.
