A little bit of this a little bit of that for dinner

All week, I have battling a cold.  When you are not feeling 100% and it is a rainy day, who wants to spend lots of time cooking?  Not me!  I decided to throw a spaghetti squash into my Instant Pot.  It came out a little underdone but that is okay.  I cut the spaghetti squash in half, dug out the seeds, then placed the 2 halves right side up into the instant pot.  I added 1/2 cup water and hit the steam button.  I let it cook for 7 minutes but should have probably left it in for the full 10 minutes.  It was a lesson learned.

I cannot say enough about my Instant Pot.  I love the ease of it.  It makes perfect rice, amazing potatoes, and mixed vegetables.  I have yet to mess with the timer yet.  On cold days, I long for mashed potatoes so I made sure I made them tonight.  The rest was whatever veggies I had in the freezer.   Yes I am eating from a child plate because I like my food separated.

Meatless Monday Veggie Pot Pies

If you are looking for a wonderful dinner idea for Monday, then make the veggie pot pies. I used the recipe from Gloria at Revolution in Bloom http://www.revolutioninbloom.com/recipe/veggie-pot-pie/#comment-2261211156.  I substituted the cashew cream with oat milk.  I had to use a nut free milk so I could pack the leftover’s in my daughter’s lunch.  A side salad and mashed potatoes made this dinner complete.

This was my yummy dinner tonight! The recipe was from http://minimalistbaker.com/easy-grillable-veggie-burgers/

My picture taken from my phone does this burger no justice. Check out the recipe through the link above and her much better picture.  The veggie burger was very flavorful.  The only changes I made was that I used almonds rather than walnuts.  I had no walnuts in the house. Enjoy!
