Consumed for the rest of the November Menu Challenge (bold = things that complied with the rules, italics = failures):
November 20: Pumpkin Soup (recipe) (This is still one of my favorite foods of all time.)
November 21: frozen pizza (Oops, but Ben had a test that day (he’s taking a math class, which is super great if by “super great” I mean terrible) and didn’t feel like making tacos.)
November 22: tempeh reubens (recipe) (more details about what I did) (This is one of the best things I’ve ever had.)
November 23: vegetarian pepperoni pizza (pepperoni recipe here)
November 24: Greek salad
November 25: Cumin Lime Quinoa Black Bean Salad (recipe) (We liked this so much we made it again to take to Friendsgiving.)
November 26: Rigatoni with Black Bean Chipotle Sauce (recipe)
November 27: Roasted Tomato Soup (recipe) (Very good, very rich. A nice way to use tomatoes that aren’t beautiful, and the Vitamix really does obliterate the tomato skin and seeds. Ben wanted to serve it over pasta.)
November 28: Friendsgiving (We brought Cumin Lime Quinoa Black Bean Salad, stuffing (recipe), and cinnamon ice cream (recipe) (So good, even for my first attempt at custard-based ice cream).)
November 29: Okay, we had our family Thanksgiving feast, featuring stuffing (we made enough for Friendsgiving and this), Tofurky, Quorn Turk’y Roast, gravy, some roasted veggies, and leftover ice cream. I still owe Ben a pumpkin pie.
November 30: sausage, pepper, and onion pizza (We use Upton’s Naturals Italian Seitan, which is so good we’re going to open a pizza place and put it on our sausage pizzas and even meat eaters will be like holy shit this is amazing.)
So this was super fun! In fact, we liked the menu challenge so much we’re doing it again in December! Details soon!
