Also cooking in bulk. New eating plan for DH and I, so have to make things easy for week day work days.

Roasting vegetables - eggplant, yellow squash, shallot, onion, carrots, asparagus, green beans.
Salads for lunch tomorrow.
Protein for salads - chicken breast and pork loin cutlets.
Brown rice and wild rice baked. Quinoa pilaf.
Wild salmon filets for dinner with some of the above.

ETA: A no grain breakfast casserole with eggs, roasted vegetables, ham and cheese.

Martha Stewart Living recipe for vegetarian french onion soup (with vegan butter and minus the part where you broil it with cheese and bread = vegan). We didn't have oven-safe soup bowls, anyway!  (and since everything on the top shelf of our kitchen cabinet came down with a spectacular crash mid-prep, it's a wonder we have any bowls left).
Faux-chicken piccata.
Leftover popovers from breakfast.

Jambalaya (future meal - better when it's been in the fridge for a day or two)

Pimento meatballs with pesto tampenade

Chicken, sweet potato, and almond soup.

"We ate the pies."

Free food at a school event serving barbecue. So bad for me, I can't believe I ate it, but so heavy I can't bear to add anything green or proteiny at this point, either:
Roll/bun
Macaroni & cheese
Potato salad
Brownie
Pickles

The only difference between my meal and the meat eaters' was a tidbit of pulled pork and some rice and beans that appeared to be cooked with bacon.

Low carb Jambalaya! We've been having great success with cauliflower "rice" and I have high hopes for this.

Salad topped wtih seared tuna and a grapefruit-ginger salad dressing.

Oh, those are two of my favorite flavors! It never occured to me to combine them.  Could you share the recipe?  Or tell me the brand if it is store-bought?

I am planning on having pancakes after I get off work, if I can find someone awake to go with me for them (I don't want to cook pancakes.  I want someone else to cook pancakes and carry them to me.)
