Menu Plan Monday: Friends week

We got a lot of dinner invites this week. Love it! However, we are starting this week with my husband's family, to eat healthier. Calorie counting for them, and since I am nursing a little one still, exercise, drinking water and avoiding sugar and white flour for me. So eating at other's houses is difficult. We already don't eat pork, and it is so not fun to ask for exceptions being made for yourself when invited somewhere. So pray things go well and we can take care of these bodies HaShem gave us!

Sunday: Dinner with friends
Monday: Stir fry w/ peanut sauce*, super firm tofu and rice
Tuesday: Dinner with friends
Wednesday: Beet Salad (roasted beets w/ carmalized onions, walnuts, quinoa and feta)
Thursday: Family Night
Friday: Dinner with friends
Shabbat Oneg: Not entirely sure yet

* Found this very informal recipe when looking for a stir fry sauce without soy sauce. I don't remember where it came from: mix peanut butter (or any nut/seed butter) with some fresh minced ginger, minced garlic, a bit of honey, some apple cider or rice vinegar, and salt. NUM!

Don't forget to check out all the other menu plans on I'm an Organizing Junkie. Looks like she is having a neat give away this week!

An idea for a sauce without soy. You are my new favorite friend. Thanks! My brain has been going to mush lately.

I'm with you on the mush, although I've read your blog and think you have a better excuse :0)

Could I still be your friend if I said we do eat soy? :0) I just happened to need a sauce once when I didn't have any soy sauce. But breath easier, we don't eat it often, and it is always organic when we do.

But try the sauce. We had it tonight without honey or ginger and num, num, num!

I do like soy sauce, but a couple of us are sensitive to it, so I have taken all soy out of our diet. Just easier that way.
