It’s World Animal Day today, coinciding with VeganMofo! Not only that, in the Netherlands it’s also unofficially “Don’t-Eat-Animals-Day”: EetGeenDierenDag. All Dutch are called to refrain from eating meat or fish today, even if it’s only for a single day in the year. If every inhabitant rose to this challenge, that would save 400.000 animals in JUST ONE DAY.*

So I hope all my fellow countrymen are joining! Several canteens from major companies will also only serve vegetarian food – yay! I wish they would do that every week for Meatless Monday though… There’s always a next step. ;)

I was too late in realising I should have invited a bunch of people for dinner and now I’m going out tonight. But I’m putting it in my calendar for next year, which will be a Friday!!! Nothing wrong with early planning. ;)

Back to the present. Here are the organic vegetables we scored in our CSA this week and the meals I plan to cook with it.

Amelishof organic CSA vegetables week 40, 2012

  • Lollo rosso lettuce
  • Carrots
  • Runner beans
  • Red mustard
  • Corn cobs
  • Celery
  • Tomatoes

Menuplan Thursday October 4th (World Animal Day!) – Tuesday 9 th

I still had some carrots so they’re priority no.1! This is what I came up with. World cooking!

  • Thai carrot soup, cumin bread (freezer stash) and salad.
  • Indian saag (spinach), leftover dal tarka (lentils), basmati rice and papadums with chutney or soygurt-mint sauce.
  • Turkish beans (taze fasulye), carrot-walnut salad with soygurt dressing (cevizli havuç salatasi) adapted from Lokanta cookbook and pide bread or a grain dish.
  • Pasta avocado, peas and seaweed (instead of pickleweed) from Puur Plantaardig (p.82).
  • I plan to make a dessert with some local pears that are ripe now — any suggestions?
  • And with this week’s celery I finally hope to try my hand at some eggless salad.. Recipe recommendations much appreciated!

So, what will YOU be eating tonight?

Tonight I won’t be eating at home. I’m going to watch ‘Japalicious’ foodie films on the Camera Japan festival in Rotterdam: Eatrip (documentary) and Our Homeland (fiction). Alas, neither will be vegan but there is a Buddhist monk in the first one… And of course I won’t be eating animals today anyway! ;) On Saturday I’ll be going to the festival again, with Mr Gnoe and friends. Then we’ll be eating at a world restaurant, Bazar!

Any eggless salad recipe you can recommend? Or a pear dessert?

I’d love to hear it!

Last week’s menu is pimped with pictures, if you care to have a look.

Vegan Month of Food button

I’ve got a busy week coming up with the start of VeganMoFo on October 1st. I haven’t been able to blog much lately and now I’m supposed to post daily and share the wonders of eating without animal products for a whole Vegan Month of Food! But more about that later.

As usual I’ve planned my meals for the next few days so that I won’t have to think about that any more, nor run to the shops at the very last minute. Every little bit helps in finding time and peace to participate in the blogfest!

Now here’s our veggie haul.

I edited last week’s menu with photos of my meals.

Het groentenpakket van deze week (37):
Aardvlo veggiebag week 37

  • venkel
  • bloemkool
  • maïskolf
  • ijsbergsla (wel 2 kroppen!)
  • boterbonen (wasbonen)
  • platte peterselie

Ik maakte nog nooit eerder boterbonen… Wat zeg ik, ik heb ze zelfs nog nooit gegeten! Wie wel?

Ook in week 34 kregen we weer een fijne tas van De Aardvlo!

Maïs behoort tot mijn favoriete groenten — ik zou wel iedere dag een maïskolf lusten maar dat is niet zo goed voor me ;) En ook courgette staat hoog in de top 10; wisten jullie dat ik die groente pas heeeeeeel laat heb ontdekt, in 1990 of zo?!

Biologische prei smaakt geweldig, veel beter dan die van de Appie (oooooh daar komt weer een preek van mijn broer ;) en die fris en fruitige zomerappeltjes komen ook als geroepen!

Tel daarbij de spekbonen en romainesla op en je weet: dit is een superweek! :))

Aangestoken door Bento-Babe nam ik op de Dag van de Arbeid zomaar opeens weer een echte bento mee naar werk! Het was even puzzelen, maar volgens mij is het nummero 46. Mooi om op 1 mei een ‘new beginnings’ bento mee te nemen ;)

Edit: zie de comments voor de inhoud :))

Thursday and Friday were moving days at the office. For me, Friday was the first day in the new building. I brought a bento with side dishes since I didn’t know yet how hungry I would be from all the hard labour, nor if I would be able to buy any food in or near the office site (it’s not located near town anymore). But there seems to be a canteen that I can go check out next week.

Contents:

  • corn with several herbs
  • boiled egg
  • pine nuts and sun-dried tomato for the pasta salad side dish
  • carrot
  • again a container of humus and mojo Palermo with capers (I am almost out of the mojo that my mother in law brought us from La Palma)
  • mini crackers and bounty
  • salt & pepper for the egg
  • sesame nibbles
  • nut mix
  • and two pickles rolled in fake meat slice.

On the side some yogurt with prune jelly (homemade by my mother in law).

Notice the nuts, fruits and seeds theme?
