What’s Cooking? 8/6/12

Hello from Vegetarian Mamma! Can you believe its August already?  Soon it will be time for the kids to go back to school.  How did the summer go so fast?  Yikes! I’ve created a meal plan this week to help keep meal time stress free so you can enjoy what’s left of summer!    As a quick reminder, we like to keep our meals simple, often times you can make them ahead and even store some meals in the freezer!  We focus on recipes that are adaptable; for vegans, vegetarians and meat lovers alike!


Monday – Stir Fry Noodles  served with Peach Cobbler (later in the evening)
I thought we’d start our week with some easy stir fry noodles!  This dish is best in a wok but if you don’t have one, no worries! You can use a skillet at a higher heat.  I love the veggies in this dish.  I paired it with a super easy peach cobbler recipe.  You will be pretty full from dinner so you can pop this in the oven to bake while you are eating. Then it can be enjoyed later in the evening! Perhaps a yummy treat for after the kids are in bed? Of course, be sure to share some with the kids tomorrow.
Tuesday Strawberry Pineapple Sandwiches served with fresh fruit
Welcome to breakfast for dinner night!  This is a fun twist!  These open face sandwiches are a sweet breakfast treat!  My family has fun creating our own.  We love to add our favorite fruits to these sammys such as kiwi and blueberries.  What will you add to your sandwich?
WednesdayCorn Chowder
How is the sweet corn growing where you live?  The corn wasn’t looking to good around here until our recent week of storms.  The storms caused lots of problems but it did bring much needed rain to the crops.  Since then our corn has been looking much better and tasting great!  This chowder is best when using fresh corn right from the cob!  Its easy and tastes great!
Thursday–  Teriyaki Plate with Egg Rolls
I wanted to add a rice dish to this week’s menu and this one fits our needs perfectly!  There are lots of veggies and you can easily sub out the tofu for a meat of your choice!  You can also switch around the veggies if you like!  Don’t like carrots?  Add in another veggie of your choice!  The meal tonight is complimented by Egg Rolls!  YUM!  There is nothing better then a warm crunchy egg roll!
TGIF!  I hope your survived the week!  Tonight we are switching gears and making homemade pizzas! Making pizza dough is easy when you use the above recipe and Better Batter’s Gluten Free Flour!  Its super quick and easy to create your dough! Let your creative juices flow and design your own pizza toppings!  Let this dinner be carefree; everybody’s pizza can be different!  Instead of buying a jar of pizza sauce just use tomato sauce.  Its cheaper and just as good!

Thanks for stopping by this week!  What was your favorite recipe from last week?

Tweet us the name of your favorite recipe from any of our Menu Mondays!  Be sure to include @betterbatter and @vegetarianmamma

Next, week is my birthday week!  So stay tuned for some of MY favorite recipes!

I love a good stir-fry and you have a couple tasty looking ones. Yum! I gotta check out the cobbler. I am loving all the beautiful stone fruit out right now and cobbler would a perfect way to serve it. Thanks for all the great ideas!

I agree with both of you on peach cobbler… I am in Georgia, after all! 😉

This looks like a terrific week’s worth of yummy foods. We love our “Brinner” (breakfast for dinner) meals. It has always been a favorite of my girls.

There is nothing like ripe Georgia peaches! YUMMO! Love the name Brinner meals, just might have to incorporate that name into the post! Thanks for the comments! I am loving your posts in the resource section! Very helpful to everybody on their gluten free journey! :) Cindy
