  1. My family is out of town this week for Spring Break. Lots of veggie-based meals for me! On a side note: I got a FitBit on Thursday, and I’m OBSESSED! I love it! Joined a Weekend Challenge with friends, and it’s so fun!

    Sunday: Leftovers from weekend
    Monday: Smashed chickpea, avocado salad wraps
    Tuesday: Sweet potato black bean burger
    Wednesday: Lentil chili in slow cooker and cornbread
    Thursday: Pizzas
    Friday: Chili mac from leftover chili
    Saturday: Out

    • I have to admit, it’s kind of nice to be home alone – kind of jealous of you! ๐Ÿ˜‰ and have fun with the fitbit – good to know you love it!

  2. 2

    Sunday -buffalo chicken pizza
    Monday – Today starts our kitchen renovation project! Any helpful suggestions will be greatly appreciated! I expect to be without a kitchen for at least the next 4 weeks! Yikes!
    so we are starting with eating with my daughter and her husband on monday – I’m making pork tenderloin stir fry.
    Tuesday – Saturday – up for grabs!

    • Mona

      Nancy, I know what you are about to go through. It is rough but I used the crockpot and stove top (until it disappeared) a lot. We had ours done this past November and December or I would have been using the outside grill!!!
      It is so worth it in the end! My family thinks I live in the kitchen now….and they are right!! I love it!!! Can’t wait to hear from you when its done!

    • When I was a kid, we had our kitchen redone. We survived on a hot plate, slow cooker, and generous neighbors who let us use their oven on occasion! ๐Ÿ™‚ Lots of cold cuts, pasta, salads, and grilled cheeses!

    • I have zero bits of good advice, but congratulations…it will be a rough transition but SO AWESOME in the end!!!

    • Kim from PA

      It was my first time making toastnacho casserole and it was good! It makes a lot…..we ate it for 2 days and still have a ton leftover.

      I changed the recipe a bit: substituted ground chicken for ground beef, chicken broth for beef broth, and omitted the coriander only because I thought I had some in my spice cabinet but discovered I did not.

      Topping the casserole with shredded lettuce, tomato, onion, and the avocado, lime, sour cream really made this dish tasty.

    • thanks so much for letting us know how it went – good to know!! thank you!

  10. 10

    We are still without an oven, and will be for another few months. I won’t go into the reasoning here, but let me assure you that this week’s whole menu plan can be made without an oven. I may have to repeat it this summer when I do not want to add heat to the house. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am going to try cooking the pizza on the grill. My youngest highly doubts my culinary skills in this area, and he is right to do so. We’ll see how it goes. (I do know you can do cookies, so will bake up another batch on that night.) We also have guest coming in this weekend, and my husband is gone all week. I’m not sure he would approve of all the bean meals, due to, um, unfavorable results that may manifest themselves while at work. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am looking forward to the easier and simpler meals.

    2. Red Lentil Dal
    3. Tangy Black Bean Soup
    4. Sandwiches, shredded carrot salad
    5. Sandwiches, carrot sticks with dip

    • without an oven for a few MONTHS?!?! what is going on? I’m sure I missed it in a comment somewhere along the line! we have the Smart Oven by Breville and I LOOOOOOVE it – it’s bigger than an ordinary toaster oven, you may want to look into it! also, you should definitely save this menu for the summertime! ๐Ÿ™‚
