Eat: Meal Plan Monday

We are in our NEW house!!!! I cant believe it! We have been super busy unpacking, cleaning and organizing. It is a lot of work! Ha!
I am so thrilled to be back in the kitchen. To be back on our normal schedule. And back to normal life. Here is our menu line up for the week.

Monday: Papa Murphy's Veggie Pizza (we have life group tonight)
Tuesday: Forks over Knives Minestrone - recipe below -
FOK Minestrone
1 onion, chopped
2 celery stalks, sliced
2 carrots, sliced
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
6 cups vegetable broth
1/2 cup chopped green beans
1 1/2 cups chunked potatoes
1 1/2 cups shredded cabbage
one 14.5 oz can chopped or diced tomatoes
one 8oz can tomato sauce
one 15oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
one 15oz can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed (or navy beans)
1/4 cup parsley (or 1 1/2 teas. dried)
1 1/2 teas. basil
freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup uncooked whole wheat or brown rice pasta

Put the onion, celery, carrots, and garlic in a large pot with 1/4 cup of the vegetable broth. Cook over med-high heat, stirring occasionally, for 2-3 mins, until veggies soften slightly.
Add remaining 5 3/4 cups broth, and green beans, potatoes, cabbage, tomatoes, tomato sauce, chickpeas, cannellini bean, parsley, basil, and black pepper to the pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat, cover, and cook for 45 mins.
Add the pasta, stir well, and continue to cook for another 15 mins, or until the pasta is tender.
Wednesday: Leftover Minestrone
Thursday: Vegetable Lo Mein - I kinda create my own thing here.
Friday: DATE NIGHT!!!!!!!
Saturday: Tofu Taco Night
For this you need a package of Firm Tofu and your favorite taco seasoning. Scramble up the Tofu in a skillet until finely chopped and sprinkle in Taco Seasoning. You can add a little water if you need to. Cook just like you would Ground Beef. Once cooked slap it in a tortilla and add your favorite taco toppings. Voila. Tofu Tacos. 

Sunday is always our take out and left over day.
I hope your week is filled with much joy, laughter and good food!
Bon Appetite!
