Black coffee, except Monday. I actually made a PB Banana Smoothie.



SUN– Hubs bought us The Red Fern. I might be spoiled.

MON– Amy’s Wrap and Teriyaki Noodles

TUE– saltines with FYH cheese slices and leftover tomato mix from dinner, FootLong Veggie Delite from Subway

WED– egg drop Soup… kinda

We have had a bag of tofu skin in our cupboard for quite a few months from when hubs went through his tofu-skin-experiment stage. I loved it; he didn’t.


Tofu-Skin Drop Soup

Saute a chopped onion and Tbs garlic in oil over med heat until translucent. Add 8 c broth; I used Better Than Bouillon No Chicken… luckily we were well “stocked” on bouillon already. Bring to a simmer. Drop in 2 oz dried tofu skin (we got this at the Asian market). Cover and simmer for at least 30 minutes.




SUN– Zucchini Pizza


Oh yes.

Zucchini Pizzas

Cut ends off zucchini and cut in half lengthwise. Slice a thin piece off the base of each half to keep it stable. Salt and garlic powder the surface areas. Top w cheese (I like the Follow Your Heart for this better than Daiya) and tomatoes.

For the tomatoes, we chopped up a can of whole tomatoes and sautéed them in garlic, oil, basil, salt and oregano, but fresh slices with herbs sprinkled on top would be easier and just as good.

Bake at 400 until Zucchini is tender… our crappy little oven took 40 min plus 5 under broiler to melt the cheese.

MON– Eggplant Pizzas (because the zucchini pizzas were so good)


We used the same recipe as for zucchini, but added tofu and mushrooms.


2 bean burritos from Taco Bell (no cheese, extra onion)


Tofurkey slices simmered in homemade mushroom gravy, boiled potatoes, roasted brussels sprouts and carrots, and stuffing.

We were hungry. Good thing I love leftovers!
