Black Bean and Sweet Potato Soup

I don't care that it was a perfectly hot summer day today -- I wanted to make this soup!  I didn't even do any menu planning or grocery shopping this week, but I had a sweet potato, and that's all I knew.  Thus, this soup. 

I quickly googled a recipe and found this one from Forks Over Knives:

I made yellow rice on the side, and we had a delicious, healthy dinner!

Spaghetti Alfredo

I just happened to spot this jar of vegan Alredo sauce while I was shopping at Sprouts, and I had to try it.  I keep meaning to make a homemade version of vegan Alfredo sauce, but this just seemed so much easier!  (Have I mentioned lately that I've been really lazy with cooking lately?)

Earlier today I took the jar out of the pantry and set it on the counter in preparation for tonight's meal.  Well, as a nice surprise, I came out of the room this evening to a fully-made meal of spaghetti with vegan Alfredo sauce and broccoli!!  How exciting!  I didn't have to cook, and this meal made by Husband was delicious!  More please.

Caribbean Vegetables with Coconut Rice and Black Beans

From Chloe's Kitchen
When I told Will what I was making he started salivating.  "That sounds like it's going to be amazing!"

And the final verdict?  It was.  I mean, everything was amazing, but the coconut rice won the prize.  SOOOO good. 

Enough said.

Spicy Tempeh and Broccoli Rabe with Pasta

I know it seems like I've been making a lot of pasta lately, but I do try to limit it to once a week or once every other week. 

This week I needed an idea for tempeh.  I hardly ever use the stuff, but it's so good!  I found the recipe of, and the link is below.  It was pretty easy to make and was delicious.  Even Will scarfed it down.  Earlier, as I was making this dish, he walked into the kitchen and looked skeptically at the soy bean chunks.  "I don't think I like tempeh."  He said.  Well, too bad for him.  It's what's for dinner.  Tempeh or nothing.

Needless to say, the tempeh went over well.  The broccoli with garlic was really good too.

Two Veggie Burritos Please

This is what dinner looks like when we're too hot and lazy to cook.  I have a feeling we are going to be having a lot of dinner's like this coming up.
