Meal Plan #74

After a week of mostly vegetarian meals around our dinner table, my husband’s mum and step-dad have decided to cut more meat out of their diets and eat more vegetarian foods! I definitely wasn’t expecting that, but they are now back home and are printing recipes out from the blog to make at home. I was just hoping that they wouldn’t hate what I was feeding them, and certainly wasn’t expecting them to change their eating habits because of it, especially given that Jason’s stepdad is a real “meat and potatoes” type guy. I am SO pleased and definitely encouraged by their response to my food!

We are not vegetarians (though our au pair is . . . ) but we do eat mostly vegetarian meals. We’ll do some fish and/or meat once or twice a week (usually on the weekends when Jason is cooking) but that seems to be opposite of what most families do. I think it has a lot to do with these meat-eating families not knowing good, hearty, vegetarian recipes to cook! If Jason’s step-dad can be converted to eating more vegetarian meals, I am convinced anyone can be! (That being said, we had meatball sandwiches last night and, OMG, they were SO yummy!! I’ll post the recipe soon!)

Monday:
Gruyere Mac and Cheese 
(This is my “from scratch” version of mac and cheese, but honestly it is just as good as my easy hungerpot mac and cheese so I think I’ll retire this old version from my repertoire!)

Tuesday:
Meatball Sandwiches
(recipe coming soon!)

Wednesday:
Potato Leek Soup

Thursday:
Indian Squash Curry

Friday:
Tacos
