This weeks Meatless Monday will be a meatless birthday party extravaganza. I took the baby yesterday and did our organic whole food shopping for pita bread and hummus, and some organic pasta. The plan is to grab fruits and vegetables from the local stand on Thursday and make some magic on Saturday. The meal will include vegi kabobs from the grill, hummus and guacamole dips, fruit - lots of fruit (since we are starting to see a few things local and from from CA come around our way), and some mac and cheese for the kids and kid in us adults. Drinks were purchased in bulk and we have this crazy idea that we will not be using disposable anything (I hope we have enough of everything). With this plan we we are busting out the grill for the first time this year so now I'm on the hunt for meatless Monday grill food (mmmm... portobello mushrooms). If anyone has one please share. And watch for party pics coming soon!
Oh and FYI that Lentil soup from Deonne was AMAZING! Plus last night we had some miso soup with tofu and udon noodles in it and some veggie pot stickers on the side (best way to get veg in the kids). So I think shopping at the Asian market paid off well for us last week.
