What's For Dinner: Stir Fry & a weeks worth of eats

Our fridge and pantry are stuffed from too many trips to the grocery store. A simple trip to get milk ends in a cart full of groceries.

This week we've had:

Monday- Veggie "pork" cutlets sauteed in soy sauce, ginger, veggie broth, garlic and onions, steamed brown rice, and steamed kale.

Tuesday- Lasagna made with leftover "pork" crumbles and a container of lowfat cottage cheese. No sides dishes but the lasagna was really good. All leftovers went into the fridge for Hubby's work lunches.

Wednesday- Tonight we're having stir fry with egg, and whatever half empty bags of frozen veggies I find in the freezer.

Thursday- Tomorrow night we're having mushroom cheese pizza with leftover sauce and cheese from the lasagna.

Friday- Breakfast for dinner- Pancakes and eggs.

I have not seen the veggie "pork" cutlets. What brand are they and are you getting them at a specialty store, Whole Foods or a regular grocery store? Thanks!

Andrea,

I found them in a regular grocery store next to the Morningstar and Boca. They had a selection of fake meats like crab, beef, chicken and pork. The brand is called Match.
I shaped them into cutlets. The flavor is very bland and the texture is sort of mushy but they stick together very well unlike rehydrated tvp.

Thanks! Might be worth a try if I can find them. None of my local gorcery stores have carried them so I will go online and see what I can find!

Thanks again...
