Game plan

August 12, 2009 at 12:30 am 2 comments

I’m visiting my family for the week, but next Monday I’ll go home and start living off of the month’s meals.  I’ll be sure to post the reheating results.  I feel optimistic about things tasting fine (my mother did a lot of freezer cooking when I was growing up, so it’s what I’m used to), but I’ll be interested to see how things hold their shape!  I tried to pick recipes that would be fairly safe bets on looking good dethawed, but I have a gut feeling this won’t be one of the vegan blogs with beautifully plated food.  I expect this to be more of the vegan equivalent of TV dinners (albeit healthier, much lower in sodium, and way cheaper.)

My boyfriend is planning on doing a VOMC breakfast session and a dinner session – he’s in medical school, so he seriously doesn’t have time to cook.  I’ll put what I can of that menu and plan up here as well.  He loves the sausages from the Vegan Brunch book, so he’ll definitely be doing a few batches of those.  I might just copy him on that – they’re fantastic! They require almost no time, and it’s so simple to just boil them.  If you’re reading this, you’ve probably frozen tofu before to get that heavier texture, and I imagine freezing those sausages will be a lot like that.  We’ll find out!

I’ll also be posting a Menu B in the next week.  Since my freezer is full, I won’t be doing the actual run of a new menu for awhile – but I feel strongly that it would just be helpful to get more ideas out there so other people interested in VOAMC can have a few different ideas of how to get started.  As always, let me know if you have any suggestions – or your own menu!
