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