This week’s challenge? What to cook when this is the current status of your kitchen:
As far as DIY kitchen renovations go, we’re pretty fortunate: we have a stove! But we won’t have running water in the kitchen for a few days this week, so I need to plan meals that can be made entirely on the stove and that don’t require a lot of water or a sink to prep, because tromping up to the second floor and using its tiny bathroom sink is something I’m willing to do about once per meal.
I think everything I’m making this week could also be made on a grill or griddle, if you’re a grill person. I’m not a grill person. Food and outside don’t mix.
Sunday: real-talk time. I still haven’t made it to the black bean and mango quesadillas or the tofu quiche from last week. I’ll try to throw those together today, while I do have a sink. Also real talk? I think I packed my food processor and grater, so I’m really not sure how I’m going to manage those shredded potatoes.
Monday: veggie burgers with raw vegetables and ranch dressing (I’ll try this recipe)
Tuesday: ravioli (they can be easily scooped out of boiling water!) with tomato sauce and sauteed spinach. From the list of ravioli above, I’ll probably buy the Eat Nice brand, as it’s available at our local food co-op. <—that’s a win-win.
Wednesday: I’ll pick from this list of vegan breakfast sandwiches and add a fruit salad, probably splurging on a pre-cut one (something we never do)
Thursday: more veggie burgers with roasted cauliflower
Friday: blueberry pancakes and soy sausage
Wish us luck. Or come help us out. 🙂
