Monday Menu Planning: On the Road Again

It’s been a busy couple of weeks and the remainder of the month is equally hectic. We’ve been traveling for Chip’s work, back & forth across the state, staying there half the week. It’s fun because we’re in a city right near my kids, but the schedule is also a little stressful on someone who likes routine and organization. (That would be me!)

On the way home last Thursday, we stopped by a popular roadside produce market. Oh, my! The veggies were so fresh and gorgeous, I was in heaven! I ended up with 3 bags of yummy-ness for only $15. You can’t beat that, and you can’t get more local than this!

 

 

I bought a giant “bouquet” of that gorgeous kale, am planning my meals around it this week. In the meantime, it’s been threatening to take over my refrigerator!

Without further ado, here’s this week’s menu plan, including one breakfast and a couple of lunches.

What’s cookin’ at your house this week?

Note: I follow a WFPBNO (whole food, plant-based, no oil) diet most of the time, deviating a bit here & there when dining out or when I just want a little treat.  When the recipe calls for oil, I substitute vegetable broth or plain water when appropriate. If the exact recipe I’m using isn’t published online, I will post a similar recipe.

Menu Planning Monday: On the Road Again!

Good morning and Happy Menu Planning Monday! Once again, we’re packing up the motor home and headed back to the Gainesville area. It was such a treat to spend time with my daughters, I can’t wait to see them again!  I loved being able to kick back and share a relaxing lunch  at Kristyn’s house instead of a restaurant; there’s just nothing like a home-cooked meal! (In case you missed it, I posted pics of our feast on last week’s Wordless Wednesday post). So, I’m hoping to do the same this week, and in preparation I’ve chosen some recipes that travel well and which I know my daughters will enjoy.

We had a nice quiet weekend at home, so while Chip was plopped in front of the TV watching football, I did some advance cooking. I’ll be sharing the pics and reviews over the course of the week, hope you’ll stop back by because there are some real winners on this week’s menu!

Note: I follow a WFPBNO (whole food, plant-based, no oil) diet 90% of the time, allowing for a bit of oil here & there when dining out or when I just want a little treat. When the recipe calls for oil, I substitute vegetable broth or plain water when appropriate.  Sometimes the exact recipe I’m using is not published online so I will share a similar recipe.

Menu Planning Monday: Travelin’ Time!

It’s a busy Monday morning around here as we prepare for a little adventure. My hunny has a job project which will requires him to be about 2 hours away from home, a little too far for a daily commute. So, we are loading up the RV and heading northwest across the state.  The project should take about 3 weeks, but we will come home for long weekends. If you read my other blog, you’ll know that this is not unusual for us and in fact was quite the norm for a couple of years. I’m an old hat at living out of the motor home, but it does require some planning as the RV kitchen is not quite as large as the one at home!

Since I prefer my own cooking for the most part, I bring along some prepared meals as well as fruits, veggies, etc for healthy snacks. We tend to eat most meals in the RV but will splurge for a restaurant dinner now & then. I made this week’s menu focusing on easy-to-cook and/or reheat dishes.

So, without further ado, here’s this week’s menu plan:

Note: I follow a WFPBNO (whole food, plant-based, no oil) diet 90% of the time, allowing for a bit of oil here & there when dining out or when I just want a little treat. When the recipe calls for oil, I substitute vegetable broth or plain water when appropriate.  Sometimes the exact recipe I’m using is not published online so I will share a similar recipe.

Well, I’d better get packing!
