Other “weekly challenges” I participate in that may or may not interest you:

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

Newcomers, read my MPM intro here which tells you all about who we are, or just visit my super-duper-list-imization of Everything We Eat.

Last week’s introduction of Vegan Alfredo sauce was – ahem – underwhelming.  The homemade spinach pasta coated in the sauce was utterly delicious, and actually, the family seemed to eat it with the sauce just fine.  As usual, I was the chicken:  I could not bring myself to eat it, and ate the pasta buttered instead.  Bad vegan! 

I wonder if I can try to use the Crock Pot for something this week….?  Something that cooks nicely but doesn’t fall apart.  What could that be???  (hint:  see bottom of this post to find out)

Sunday:  Meat, meat, meat!  I’m off meat for a year now… well, at least two days.  All-Chinese, all the time, at Mommy’s house with a nice doze by the fireside afterwards…

Monday:  Pea soup…Vegetarian shepherd’s pie (like this one only with roasted vegetables and tofu)…

Tuesday (Ted off):  Leftover Chinese food plus something else Asian made out of leftovers… hmm, ambitious!

Wednesday:  Spicy carrot sticks made with “whole” baby carrots (someone ate my carrots!!!), pressure-cooker maple & sausage risotto (easy, yummy)

Thursday (really Vegan Vursday!):  Pumpkin & black bean soup, maybe with yves sausages in it; sourdough cornbread (not quite successful!)

Friday / Shabbos:  Out at neighbours!!!

Guess there are no crock-pot dishes here… unless… hmm… I wonder if you can make Sausage Risotto in a pressure cooker???

(*Postscript:  It’s Thursday, and I just realized I used the crockpot for overnight oatmeal last night.  Yummy!!!  Check it out here.)


  1. the soup sounds slow-cooker compatible, and so does the shepherd's pie.
