where’s the beef?

a while ago i had the bright idea to have girls over for bubble tea and some recipe swapping.  so this week i am cooking through my friend megan’s menu.  i asked for her 7 favorite meals, put together and ready to go.  and she did her homework.  if you could swing it, i definitely recommend this kind of party.  way to rope the taste-buds up and haul them around the block.  yee-haw.


m.  homemade pizza and sauce + mushrooms, zucchini, and olives + root beer

t.  sunny sunflower seed burgers + moosewood tahini-lemon sauce + potato wedges + fresh strawberries

w.  tacos + moosewood’s zucchini and pepper filling + avocados + tahini-lemon sauce + raspberry tea

thrs.  minestrone soup + artisan bread + kale chips + apple-brown sugar coffee cake

fri.  moosewood’s spicy baked beans with molasses + cornbread + spinach pear salad

sat.  chinese-style stir fry vegetables with moosewood’s basic stir fry sauce + brown rice

sun.  something indian and desperate


m.  taco time, 4 items for $5  menu

t.  noodles made with peas and cream cheese + v8 juice

w.  cheese + lettuce sammiches on homemade bread + cherry tomatoes + tofu chocolate pudding  😉

thrs.  beans + rice + homemade salsa + nutritional yeast

fri.  flippin’ quesidillas with leftover veggies fried with oregano and garlic salt

sat.  picnic?

sun.  tamales + spicy black beans + kale (i have lots of it)


m.  10 grain cereal + egg cups

t.  yogurt parfaits + granola + fresh strawberries

w.  fried eggs + toast + tea + melon

thrs.  baked oatmeal with fruit and nuts + yogurt

fri.  cereal + egg cups

sat.  waffles + peaches (from our tree)

sun.  pancakes + eggs

total = $129

for the record:

i enjoyed the zucchini taco filling.  everyone else mourned the absence of beans.  it was practically a funeral party.  sheesh.  the tofu pudding was a big hit, on the other hand.  don’t know why it turned out so runny though.  maybe because i used the blender and not the food processor like it said?  we will try it again and see what happens.  the real revelation of the week however was coffee cake.  where have you been all my life?  i am on the bandwagon now, watch out.

    Hmm. Now you just need to get some decent food mixed in with cannon fodder. Like go beef, pork and chicken. YUM.
