Margaret : Summer concert season is upon us which means that at least one day a week will feature leftovers or sandwiches because there won't be time to cook. But, this week I'll be making: Monday = Melissa D'Arabian's Grilled Potato Salad with Bacon-Scallion Vinaigrette (Food Network Magazine) with Mustard-Soy Glazed Salmon with Brown Sugar and Ginger (Not Your Mother's Weeknight Cooking) and roasted cauliflower. Tuesday = kayem all natural hot dogs with corn on the cob. Wednesday = Linguine With Shrimp, Artichokes, and Crispy Bread Crumbs (Real Simple Magazine) and Sweet-And-Sour Carrots (Food Network Magazine). Thursday = Mushroom and Spinach Korma (Food Network Magazine). Friday = first concert of the seasons so we will forage! Have a great week everyone!

Margaret : This past week all of our food has come from the freezer! I love mystery leftover weeks - it's a great way to rediscover favorites & clean up the freezer. =)

Margaret : I've got a new goal. I'm trying to cook only recipes that I haven't made yet from my own recipes. Then I'll move into my bookmarked ones. So this week we'll be eating: Buttered zucchini with garlic and lime (One World Vegetarian Cookbook), Puffy Pancake (Moosewood Restaurant New Cookbook), Mexican Red Rice (Moosewood Restaurant New Classics), baked pasta e fagioli, and a big batch of Puree of Carrot and Yam with Citrus and Spices (Love Soup) to stock the freezer.

Margaret : I'm traveling at the end of next week, so only 3 planned meals: Cantonese-Style Shrimp and Napa Cabbage (Cooking Light Magazine), Turkish Thick Lentil Soup (One World Vegetarian Cookbook), & Black Bean Chili Pot Pie (The Vegetarian Times Complete Cookbook). As usual, Wednesday nights are for leftovers or freezer meals, so we forage that day. :)

Margaret : Next week finds me with three new recipes to try: Monday will be Maple Glazed Salmon with Roasted Brussels Sprouts (Real Simple Magazine), Tuesday = Taco Night, Wednesdays are always leftover days, Thursday will be Thai Butternut Squash Soup (Family Circle Magazine), and Friday I'll make basic panko crusted fish fillets with Roasted Sweets & Greens (Better Homes and Gardens Magazine)

Margaret : This week finds us with two dinner dates for the weekend, so I'll be making only 4 meals: Honey-Sesame Scallops (Family Circle Magazine) with green beans, Baked Italian-Style Cauliflower (Cooking Light Magazine) with salad, Guy Fieri's Ginger-Carrot Soup (Food Network Magazine) & talapia fillets with brocoli. It's going to be a great week!

Margaret : Our schedules are picking back up again, so I'm down to cooking 3 meals a week {sometimes 4} and making our leftovers work harder. This week we will be eating: baked fish with roasted butternut squash, Black Bean Chili Verde (30 Minute Vegetarian Mexican Cookbook) & Ziti, Artichokes, and Olives with Spicy Tomato Sauce (Vegan Planet). I hope everyone has a great week!

Margaret : this week between the holidays is always a little weird - we have so many goodies from parties and events left over that we just graze along all day. i haven't cooked much & didn't do any grocery shopping this week. i'll get back into the cooking saddle next week.

Margaret : With the holidays quickly approaching, free time is at a premium. Traveling the end of next week so I'm planning simple for the week: keilbasa with Roasted Potatoes and Lemon with Dill (Real Simple Magazine), Gnocchi with Squash and Kale (Food Network Magazine) & we'll be making a 3rd meal from items in the pantry/freezer.

Margaret : Not cooking T-day dinner, and I'm pretty excited about that. :) Spending a quiet morning watching the Macy's Day Parade and planning next week's meals. What are you doing? Other then stuffing your face, that is! :) Next week I'll be making: Sausage and Potato Casserole (Bake Until Bubbly), Pasta with Roasted Cauliflower & Red Onions (Womans Day Magazine), and Dutch Pea Soup (One World Vegetarian Cookbook) along with plenty of salad and maybe a loaf of crusty bread.

Margaret : Money is tight this week as I will be A) dropping $400 on tires on Tuesday and B) taking THE FAM out to dinner tomorrow night (sunday). So dinners this week are coming out of the freezer and pantry. But since today is cleaning day, and I'm hosting a hot-water party for THE FAM tonight with dinner included, I'm going to bake me an apple pie. And after Sunday I'm going to take a hiatus from my family - hot water parties every other day for a week, plus birthday dinner for dad on Sunday, means just a little too much family time for this girl. Hope your having a good week.... if you live in CT, MA or RI I hope you have power.

Margaret : Next week, husband & I will be enjoying: tacos with soy crumbles, mushrooms & onions, Baked Bucatini with Porcini Mushrooms (Bake Until Bubbly) and I can't decide between Shirmp Scampi Verde (Rachael Ray Just In Time!) or Curry Shrimp and Snow Peas (Real Simple Magazine). All of our recipes we made this week were excellent. But I don't think I'll be making the pot-stickers again - they took forever to prep for! :( But that was probably more my fault.... we didn't eat until 9:15 that night!

Margaret : I think husband & I are finally falling into a routine of gym/appointments/rehearsals/work and how that affects our cooking and eating habbits. So I'm in for cooking 3 meals a week and having leftovers/freezer food {meaning stuff I've cooked and frozen previously} for the remaining days. Plus we hit the parents/in-laws once a week for free food. Looking ahead to next week I'll be making: Black Bean Chili over Soft Polenta, Potstickers with Roasted Butternut Squash, and Grilled Salmon with Plum Ginger Sauce (Big Y) with a big salad. How do you cope with busy work schedules/activities and cooking healthy food?

Margaret : My Peach Delights recipe - it was light and yummy and everyone liked it. Not a real lot of flavor (you know, peaches aren't a strong flavor) but it was yummy and easy to make. Thanks for asking. Have fun with trial Thanksgiving.

Margaret : Still having a reallly hard time adjusting to bizarre work and gym schedules, but I'm making it my goal to cook 2 quality meals a week and maybe a soup for lunches. I also really want to start using some of my bookmarked recipes. I have so many! :)

Margaret : My goal for August is to make the most of my limited grocery dollars. I tend to buy the stuff I want at the grocery and then find that I have a lot of yummy things but nothing much to make any meals out of. So I'm going to work hard at planning my meals out for the week and basing my grocery list off of my meal plans. In short, I just need to have a better plan for my shopping days.

Janice Cook: Hey there, I'm on a similar quest this month. Stumbled on some good reads through sparkpeople (no longer doing the diet tracking there but using sparksavings to handle our budget). There is a blog called 30 bucks a week - it's NYC couple who won't allow themselves to buy more than $30 in groceries. They cheat a bit since it doesn't count alcohol, household products, or eating out. . . but still some inspiring recipes - if you are looking for a good read, google it. Also, the website hillbilly housewife has some recipes that look promising which are budget friendly. I thought of the blog because they cook vegetarian and so do you. Anyways - good luck with your challenge!

Margaret : No plan for this week - just using up the stuff in the fridge. Crazy work hours, meetings and concerts make for meal planning difficulty.

Margaret : It's been a crazy week! This week we have been cleaning out the fridge and pantry for our big grocery shopping trip on Saturday. So next week I will be maiking: shrimp chili cornbread casserole, Spring Vegetable Saute (Moosewood Restaurant Simple Suppers), Sesame Vegetable Lo Mein (Vegetarian & More), and Weight Watchers - Broccoli With Garlic Sauce. I am also starting a new gym routine next week. Whew. Going to be busy. :)

Janice Cook: Have fun! I had a crock pot book, a penzey's spice store book, and an old cookbook from sam's bachelor apartment days that I was able to remove from the bookshelf by finally putting our favorite recipes/ones we wanted to try in here. Still a zillion clipped out of magazines but at least that helped make space for some new books I got for Christmas which are the kind which I would probably keep for reference.
8 years ago
Picture of mrhb114
Margaret : That's exciting! I got rid of all my clipped recipes when I did the initial conversion to this site. But I still rip pages out of magazines, so a few are floating around. But I used to keep them all in a gigantic binder, and that's been taken care of! I'm working through 'The Vegetarian Meat and Potatoes Cookbook' now, which is awesome. I found about 30 recipes in it!
8 years ago
Picture of janice.cook
Janice Cook: That's awesome - I don't think I'll ever finished the clipped ones but the books feel like an accomplishment so I usually focus my efforts there. Some cookbooks I like to keep on the bookshelf for specific reasons but for general recipes that I'd like to try having them in here is my preference.

Eunice : Margaret, just looking over at your Herbed Carrot Soup recipe to plan for next dish, possibly add lentils to it, too. but noticed that your directions say "Pee and chop carrots and potato..." had to laugh at it and just thought you would like to know. (^_~)
8 years ago
Picture of mrhb114
Margaret : Thanks Eunice! I'll fix that right now. And lentils would really bulk it up. I was thinking of adding some roasted garlic next time!
8 years ago
Picture of blackbirdpies
Eunice : how did the roasted garlic work out? i grated both the carrots and potato and since it was going to be pureed anyways, did this all with the food processor. added the grated carrots and potato straight into the pot that i sauteed the onions and garlic with and fried up just a little for a little bit of caramelization before adding seasonings, lentils and water. used just 1 lb of carrots and added in 1 cup of yellow lentils. added a bay leaf, about 1/4 tsp of grated nutmeg, and 1/4 tsp of dried thyme leaves. and then i browned 2 tbsp of butter, added about 2 tbsp of fresh chopped sage leaves to crisp in the browned butter and added that to the finished soup and whizzed to blend it all up. not sure if you want me to add this to your recipe or not since i changed it up a bit. if you want i could. thanks for the recipe, i enjoyed adapting it! oh and added more garlic because i love garlic.

Margaret : Trying hard to get through the 4 new cooking books I got at the library. Only one left!! Have you looked at "The Roasted Vegetable" by Andrea Chesman. You really should. It's amazing... mostly veggies but some other great recipes in there for roasting! I found 40+ recipes in the 200+ page book. :) Almost worth the purchase price... but so glad the library had it!

Doris Clark: You brave soul. You have a marvelous collection of recipes. I too,love browsing the cookbook section of my library. I currently have Linda Greenlaw's "Recipes From A Very Small Island" I was interested to get it after reading her *The Hungry Ocean" (her true life story the movie "Perfect Storm" was based on.) So keep on reading and writing, as I will, but mostly I'm just reading.

Margaret : Thanks Doris. I was just looking through your collection of recipes as well. :) I love to peek through everyones collection and see what they've got! The library is my greatest resource for cookbooks, and with only 1400 square feet in my house my husband laid down the law about many books I'm allowed to keep... I'll have to check for that book by Linda Greenlaw - sounds good. Thanks for the comment!

Margaret : If you're looking for good roasted side dishes - I just added a bunch of recipes from "The Roasted Vegetable". An amazing book!! I'm about half done entering all the recipes I liked out of it. As to the chicken - my mom had a clay pot that she did chicken in once but I wasn't interested in it because the entire chicken was white - the skin never browned! It looked kind of raw to me, so I wouldn't touch it. But I have some bread and side dish recipes for my clay pot.

Eunice : i love butternut squash and the flavor for this is yummmm! i do hate peeling them, though, so one thing i did change was to split the squash in half and bake until it's soft and tender and then scrape the flesh from the skin that way. fried up onions and shallots with the spices and then dumped the butternut squash and brown sugar in and sauteed some more. used a hand blender to smooth it out with the water. hate peeling butternut squash and hate doing dishes. anything to reduce my work in either of those 2 departments, i'm there. thanks again for the recipe!
