Monday on a Tuesday

Today is Monday on a Tuesday for me. I had 7 days straight of work or work events, so I took Monday off. Laura stayed over after our work event and we went hunting for supplies forthe birthday party I am hosting for her in April. We made good progress! We just need a few more goodies and the craft supplies, then we’ll be ready.

Don’t really have anything exciting to talk about since I’ve been so busy with work. We need to grocery shop so I am trying to plan out meals and food lists. Does anyone have suggestions on good vegan or low-dairy veggie meals that are inexpensive and quick/easy to make? Bonus points if a meat item can also be prepared to go with it so Dan doesn’t have to eat veggie with me.

  1. Not sure if this will fit you or not

    Linguine with Chicken, Leeks And Tomatoes with Changes

    4 tablespoons of Olive oil
    8 Boneless skinless chicken (thinly sliced)
    1/4 cup of Butter; (1/2 stick)
    3 large Leeks; (white and pale , & green parts only), thinly sliced or 1 large onion, chopped
    1 package of sliced mushrooms
    4 Garlic cloves, minced
    one 28 ounce can of Italian diced tomatoes (pre-seasoned with basil, oregano and garlic)
    3 tablespoons of Dry vermouth or a Dry White Wine
    1 pound of Linguine; freshly cooked
    1 cup of grated Parmesan

    Heat oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Add to skillet and sauté until just cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Cool slightly. Thinly slice chicken crosswise and set aside. Melt butter in same skillet over medium-low heat. Add leeks and garlic and sauté until leeks are very tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, vermouth and chicken. Cook until mixture is just heated through, about 2 minutes. Season generously with salt and pepper. Combine chicken mixture, linguine and 1/2 cup Parmesan in large bowl; toss well. Sprinkle with basil if desired. Serve, passing remaining Parmesan. Serves 4. Bon Appetit June 1992.

    • FatFreeVegan is a great site! She also has a huge list of other vegan food blogs. Sometimes I spend hours just looking at all the vegan food porn. Vegan Dad is also another fantastic vegan recipe site.

  2. The chicken part was for your hubby – you could cook it in two different pans. I am sure you can use a vegan cheese vs the parmesan.
