Midweek Munchies & Cookbooks

What wonderful foods did you bring home from the grocery store?

Midweek Munchies: What VICKI is contributing for the week ~ but first, new cookbooks:


The Vegan Family Cookbook ~ Table of Contents: snacks & dips, soups, salads & dressings, vegetables, side dishes, breakfast, lunch, dinner, beverages, breads, desserts, miscellanious recipes, glossery, conversion chart, a well-stocked vegan pantry, and a protein list ~ over 400 recipes! There aren't any photos, but the book makes up for that in it's simple format and extra room for notes. I already cooked one recipe from this cookbook (post later) and can tell that I'm going to love this book.

Healthy Cooking for your Kids ~ This book isn't vegan or even vegetarian, but I picked it up because it looked worthy of $5. Table of Contents: nutrition, breakfast, lunchs & lunchboxes, party, family meals, & treats. There are some vegan friendly recipes: fruit smoothies, cereal fruit cupcakes, tomato soup, souffled baked potatoes, apple + carrot muffins, couscous salad w/roasted butternut squash, crispy vegetable bake, & others. There is a photo on every page along with fun serving suggestions.

I saw the healthy cooking for your kids in a bookstore and almost picked it up! Now I would have for sure if it was $5.00!!!! The one I looked at was full price... but I thought it had some real gems in it. I gotta figure out how to do midweek munchies. I love these posts.

I don't buy any non-vegan cookbooks anymore (unless it has mostly vegan items) but I like to modify good ideas with recipes and see what you can do. The kids ideas seem like a good reference and book to alter, rather than following it straight-up.
