This week I have a new vegetarian weekly meal plan for 2. It has some new dishes and some things we used to eat when we ate meat. Veggie versions tho!
Saturday 19th – Bao buns with crispy aubergine & cucumber pickle followed by Garlic chicken (quorn fillets) egg fried rice and stir fried veggies
Sunday 20th – Vegetarian roast dinner – Cauliflower cheese, roast potatoes, loads of vegetables, Yorkshire pudding and gravy.
Monday 21st – Brinner – Vegetarian sausages, home made facon, mushrooms, hash browns, baked beans, tomatoes, eggs and bread and butter.
Tuesday 22nd – Dinner for one as Mr CK is at one of his
geek squad networking meetings.Baked spud with cheese and beans.
Wednesday 23rd – Paneer tikka masalla, aloo sag, rice and naan. Plus Poppadoms, pickles, raita and kachumber.
Thursday 24th – Mushroom and lentil hotpot with sides of broccoli, leeks and green beans.
Friday 25th – Curry night at the local veggie cafe.
Another 2 cookbooks have been added to my collection, Linda McCartney on tour and Jamie O’s America. I have already picked loads of things to make from both. I do love a charity shop bargain. Staying on the vegetarian meal plans is getting easier as we try new dishes and find new ingredients.
I can tell we are drifting into Autumn, the leaves on the trees are starting to change colour, there is a definite nip in the air some mornings and the moors are a wonderful sea of purple as the heather comes into flower.
Not a lot of news on the home front. The garden is still slowly growing, my squashes have flowers. The courgettes are still flowering so I am hoping to be able to harvest a few more before the cold kills them off. The tomatoes are teeny and green. There are also not many of them. So I do not think I will be making ketchup this year.
I’ll leave this post with my favourite picture from this week. A pair of kingfishers sitting outside my window.
