backlogged dinner, weekly shop

First, here's a pic from Monday night's dinner:

example

"Bare Bones Tofu Curry," with red peppers, asparagus, and mushrooms thrown in for good measure, from Vegetarian Suppers from Deborah Madison's Kitchen. Dan loved this, I thought it was about a B+ -- nothing earth-shattering, but definitely a few notches above "edible."

~~~~~~~~~~

Next, the weekly co-op haul:

example

BULK:
local, organic "gold & white" flour
locally-roasted, organic, fair-trade coffee

44% of my purchase was local today, and that's not even counting what I'll pick up at the Farmer's Market this weekend!

~~~~~~~~~~

Last, this week's meal plan is a bit more elaborate, since Dan's officially moved in!

Breakfast stuff: granola w/almond milk and/or smoothies
Lunch stuff: leftovers and/or quesadillas and/or bulgur tabouli w/homemade pita and yogurt cheese

Dinner Friday: homemade pizza and side salads
Saturday: lunch and dinner are both planned out, since it's my BIRTHDAY!
Sunday dinner: "Tuscan Poached Eggs w/Parmesan" (from Fine Cooking,) garlic toast, kale
Monday dinner: "Eggplant-Tomato Gratin" and "Saffron Rice" (both from Vegetarian Suppers from Deborah Madison's Kitchen,) and side salads
Tuesday dinner: "Asparagus Crepes with Mushroom Sauce" (from The Vegetable Dishes I Can't Live Without,) and side salads

(Wednesday and Thursday dinners will be leftovers, since I have to work late.)

Off to work!

Why do I love seeing what people get at the grocery store so much?! It must feed my grocery shopping obsession...I love grocery shopping :o)

Those Asparagus Crepes sound delicious!
