Menu Monday!


Well, well, Monday.  We meet again.

First, if you follow me on Instagram, you saw on Saturday a video of Elizabeth crawling!!!!!! She just decided to do it, randomly.  Yay her!

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Father’s Day for us was quiet.  The doctor hubby was on call on Sunday, meaning he didn’t come home from the hospital until about 6:00, and then had to go BACK in after dinner… so yay for his first Father’s Day…

He did request a pretty awesome dinner.  Last week I made this Spicy Basil Tofu.  O.M.G.  This was AMAZING!  He asked for this again for Father’s Day, and then I also made a batch of Thai Yellow Curry, so our tummies were very happy.  FYI – if you like a saucy Spicy Basil Tofu, that particular recipe is lacking.  When I made it a second time, I tripled the sauce part of the recipe.

Enough chit chat… on to the menu!

If this is your first time visiting for Menu Monday, then welcome!  This is where I share my weekly dinner menu, along with recipes.  We are a vegetarian family, so if you are also meatless, or looking for ideas for a Meatless Monday, then you’re at the right place! For more information on how I menu plan, look at this.

    Do you have a recipe link for the thai yellow curry? My boys don’t like spice (boo) but I they do like curry, I’m always looking for new recipes that they will actually eat! Thanks for sharing your meal plan.
