Aside from unpacking, there's a lot to other stuff to catch up on when you've been away for two months, like yardwork. Our weekend was chock full of it. It seemed my busy work week followed me home this weekend, because once again I found myself very near dinner and not prepared at all.
I keep forgetting to put beans in the slow cooker overnight (my favorite way to cook them) so most beans weren't an option (I have to use lentils sparingly or they stage a revolt around here.) I couldn't make TVP because the new oven isn't here yet. Grr, what's a frugal veggie mama to do??
Friday night I made Mac Uncheese. Saturday evening I made pasta and topped it with pan fried eggplant, toasted walnuts, garlic and onion. Sunday I made Fettucini Alfreda from Vegan With a Vengeance. I suppose it was really nutritional yeast and walnuts that saved my sanity but the pasta sure helped.
