Menu Plan Monday #28: 20 Elul, 5770

Why the weird dates? Click here to find out!

We are a Jewish family of 6 (2 parents, 4 kids) and all our meals are kosher.

Newcomers, you can read my MPM intro here which tells you all about who we are and what we eat, or just visit my super-duper-list-tastic itemization of Everything We Eat.

Last week was a total whirlwind, with us away in NYC for most of the week.  but I want to thank Ted for his update to the menu plan to prove that he and the nosy puppies can survive in my absence!

Note:  this menu plan was revised on Wednesday, Sept 1/10 to reflect a switch in this week’s “Vegan Day!”

Sunday (last night):  Take-out Falafel w/sisters at Mommy’s house

Monday:  Steaks on BBQ – must buy gas canisters – argh!  Instant mashpo & salad w/Mango-Poppy Dressing (per Elisheva’s request)

Tuesday (Ted’s off day, the NEW Vegan Vuesday):  Stir-fry w/tofu cubes (per Elisheva’s request – can you guess who’s sitting behind me as I type this?) – I have updated this post to indicate that this WAS our vegan meal for the week.  And mighty delicious it was, too.  I froze the (firm) tofu for a few hours to give it a heartier texture, and also stir-fried it before the veggies, then took it out.  Usually, I add tofu at the end and it sometimes crumbles.  Frying it beforehand means it holds together and has a nice outside texture when I add it back in near the end of cooking.  Mmm…

Wednesday (Ted’s late day):  Chicken baked on top of rice; stir-fried snap peas and yellow pepper.

Thursday (NOT Vegan Vursday):  Pasta w/fresh-tomato rosé sauce, corn on the cob (yes, I do know that corn is a starch and pasta is a starch!!!)

Friday:  Shabbos food!!!
