But even more, I love the way it tastes. I wish I had made a double batch. Oh well.
The creamy sauce made from cashews really makes this dish delightful. It's from Fat Free Vegan, probably my #1 source for vegan recipes. I adore her recipes!
My 6 year old disagrees that this dish is the bees knees, however, and said that it was not a make again meal. Too bad for her, it's going into the regular rotation. Dave and I both love it. And Lacy likes it okay, so there's that, too.
Anyway, Wednesday is payday, which means that Thursday is go-to-the-bank day. And also errand running day, because I hate to waste gas by going out more than is necessary.
So that means that Wednesday is menu planning day and grocery list writing day. Here is what I will be serving to my family in the upcoming week:
Thursday is my busy day, so it is leftover night. Which is a lot of fun for me because that means my kids raid the fridge and get whatever they want to eat out of it, by themselves. I'm fostering independence!
Friday: Curry and rice. I don't have a recipe for this because it's so simple. I'll do a blog post on how to make this dinner soon. It's probably my most popular dinner with the kids.
Saturday: Tostadas. It's another one without a recipe. I'm keeping my weekend menu simple!
Sunday: I'm thinking Chocolate Strawberry Truffle Pie in a Chocolate pie crust. Oh, for dinner, you say? Hm, not going to do it today. I'm not sure what kind of a vegan meal the kids are going to come up with, but I'm sure it will be edible!
Monday: Tortilla Soup, once again from Fat Free Vegan. I use kale (of course) in this recipe. Yum!
Tuesday: Caribbean Peas & Rice
Wednesday: Aztec Corn Soup
I really want to try the Quiche with Greens recipe, probably soon because I need to use up some spinach soon.
And maybe I'll suggest the black bean and potato nachos for Sunday dinner? Looks pretty simple and tasty. As long as I don't have to make it, I'm happy.
