Here's what I fixed for dinner this month--(v) is for vegan and (veg) for vegetarian. I'd love to see lists from others.

Asian hot pot (v)
potato-kale soup (v)
French lentil stew (v)
Mayan (spicy) black bean soup (v)
dal, aloo gobi, rice (v)
Sicilian cauliflower gratin (veg)
pasta w/broccoli, capers, red pepper flakes and romano (veg)
shrimp fra diavolo & green beans
teriyaki salmon & pea pods
grilled chicken & broccoli
turkey mole' & butternut squash
avgolemono--Greek chicken soup & zucchini
chicken, cabbage & ginger pot stickers & sesame spinach
split-pea soup w/a little ham
minestre--Italian cabbage, white bean and sausage stew
ragu alla bolognese & broccoli
pot roast


I re-orged the fridge so that partially used and other items that need to be used quickly are in plain sight so I didn't overlook them.

We don't eat as cheaply as many of you due to my lactose- and gluten-intolerance (e.g., GF pasta is $4.79/12 oz, almond milk $1.49-$2 /qt); our few, distant, and not particularly cheap ethnic groceries; eating pastured meat, eggs and butter; organic "dirty dozen" produce (so no cheap apples). Spent a little over $500 this month for 2 adults who usually eat all meals but one a week at home.
