weekly menu

Today I thought I'd get all crazy and post the menu first, and then the recipes, and THEN the produce list.  Wild, huh?  I like to keep you guessing.  ;o)

Stuffed mochi - I'm baking plain mochi in the oven until it puffs, and then stuffing them with the veganized copycat version of PF Chang's lettuce wrap filling.  I'll use Yves meatless crumbles instead of chicken.

Stir fry - this will be whatever my husband cobbles together on his night to cook!

Soup - I'm undecided about what kind it will be except that I know it will have zucchini.  I picked up some Field Roast vegan smoked apple sage sausage, so I will probably make this Martha Stewart recipe and add zucchini  

Roasted root vegetable salad with maple balsamic dressing  - I'll be using beets (which I hate - the things I do for my husband!), carrots, potatoes and onions, serving it over our leafy greens and topping with toasted walnuts and pomegranate arils.

Hazelnut-quinoa stuffed acorn squash - I'll be adding spinach (I have frozen spinach in abundance) and topping with a mixture of ground pine nuts, nutritional yeast and salt instead of parmesan cheese.

I'm also hoping to make a key lime pie with a bunch of the key limes we have left from last week.  There's one in Vegetarian Times that looks really yummy.  

Here's our gargantuan produce list.  There is lots extra today because I ordered two Asian veggie packs and 5 pumpkins (and five loaves of bread).  We'll be hollowing out the pumpkins for jack-o-lanterns and freezing the guts for future recipes.
