A busy and long day today – with Ah Lo playing 3 games today. So let’s load him up with some carbs with these yummy steamed green onion buns for breakfast. IMG_3960

After his 3 games (2-1), came home and whip up a quick dinner – chicken salad sandwich. Wonder why I was so tired when I got home (and I was just sitting down watching the games)?IMG_3979

Have you ordered a banh mi and wished you had more of this and less of that? Well, you won’t have this problem if you make it at home! I grilled some spicy pork (using spicy Korean marinade) and made some picked carrots (for the first time). IMG_2118Kinda weird we have a lunch item for dinner, huh? Yeah kinda…all because I had to run out for a basketball meeting, anything quick and easy…IMG_2126

Thanks to my sister for offering us some kale and radishes as an add ons to the butternut squash soup on our meatless Monday. I was only thinking of making soup for tonight, but decided later to add kale apple quinoa salad. I made my own honey mustard dressing to go with the salad. Dai Bee, who was hesitant about the salad, cleared out the bowl. IMG_E1945IMG_1944IMG_E1941

Hot hot hot today, so I didn’t feel like slaving away in front of the stove. Instead, roasted some veggies (red peppers, eggplants and zucchini) for meatless Monday meal! The boys are not big fans of these particular vegetables. Just sandwich them with focaccia bread and mozzarella cheese, they ate it without much complaints.IMG_9961Also learned how to roast bell peppers today (thanks youtubers!). IMG_9956

Boys’ breakfast this morning. Similar to these.

Devoured our meatless Monday meal (and burped). This meal was pretty simple to make. A box of Trader Joe’s low sodium organic tomato and red pepper soup, and some mushrooms for the ‘shroomy flavor (only in 3 bowls, since Ah Lo is not a big fan of mushrooms, any mushrooms). Paired with the soup is my favorite guacamole grilled cheese sandwich. These just go so well together wished my tummy is big enough to take on more. The boys, of course, had seconds. Yes, they would like to have this again.

Never had grilled cheese sandwich growing up. Now it’s one of my faves.

In the height of Indian summer, I’m trying to stay away from the stove. Sandwiches came to mind! Because it’s meatless Monday today – I’ve made seared tofu banh mi. The boys don’t care for the picked radish, but they still finished the sandwich! I loved it, because I love everything made with tofu. I’d definitely try this again.

Looking back, this marks our first anniversary of having Meatless Mondays. We started this a year ago, and still going strong!
