Meal Plan Monday

Are you the type of person who falls off of a horse and gets back up again? I'm the type of person who falls off of a horse, and realizes I've lost my keys. I will go look for my keys and on the way maybe notice some flowers. The flowers may be purple, this will remind me of a friend who I would love to have coffee go make some coffee.....


what horse?

By this point it is eleven o' clock at night and I have neither the time nor the energy to ride horses. So I shall leave it to another day.

In this scenario the horse represents being organized, the friend is Lilac Barries, and the coffee is coffee. We are in the process of (trying to) selling our house and in the midst of projects, and decluttering I've forgotten my meal planning and list making. It's been kind of disastrous. Well that's where you come in Blogland*. I'm going to start putting my vegetarian meal plans on the web for the world to see. I'm hoping this will keep me accountable to start actually making weekly meal plans again. I also truly hope this will inspire others to make their own meal plans. Or supposing you are just starting out down the vegetarian road, I hope this helps you to get an idea of what I eat on a weekly basis ('s rarely salad!)

If you have your own vegetarian meal plan up at your blog feel free to leave a link in the comment section. If I have time I'll start putting links in the actual blog itself. I'd love for people to be able to come to this site and look over lots of ideas for a typical week in the life of a vegetarian or vegan. If you don't have a blog you could also leave your meal plan in the comments section, or maybe just one or two ideas you have for the week. I'm excited about let's get started!

Chickpeas and veggies in a spicy tomato and onion gravy served with rice and pitas

Fajitas in the crock pot? I don't know how this one will work out, but I've got a class that night so I need a crock pot recipe to keep me from going loco.

Beans, apple wasabi slaw, and rice


Froggie face pita pizzas (if these work I'll post pictures) and pumpkin rice balls

Soup, pumpkin pull apart rolls, and roasted potatoes

Chili and cornbread casserole

Other vegetarian meal plans:

*Yes we are still in the midst of one of my delusions......errr...scenarios, in it I am the Empress of Blogland and I get to wear a pretty pretty dress.


  1. Yay! I'm seriously getting stuck, I was lame and decided I wouldn't do any duplicates this month-because no meat for the whole month isn't hard enough. So now I get ideas! You can do it! love you!

  2. Sadie, I am more of a meal guidelines kind of gal. My kids have found great amusement in the fact that I assign meal catagories to days of the week. Here's what I do.

    Monday: Italian
    Tuesday: Mexican
    Wednesday: Soups,Salads and Sandwiches
    Thursday: Asian
    Friday: Pizza
    Saturday: Burgers/Grilled Anything
    Sundays: Everyone is on his or her own

    This allows me a lot of flexibility when shopping to get what is on sale, while still having some idea of what I'm going to do with it.

    I do have a set of file cards (haven't put them on my computer yet)with menu ideas for each food category.

  3. Denise, we do Mexican food on Tuesdays as well. I really like the idea of having a category for each day. That's something I'll have to work on.

  4. Mrs. Lilac, I've added your link. :)

  5. Hi, I just discovered your blog. I'm always looking for good veggie recipes, so I am going to be a new follower. Will you follow mine as well?
