7 weeks of meal plans for jan & feb

i’m going to follow my usual format of two vegetarian/vegan/meatless meals each week but i’m going to dial down the fish to just once a week (shellfish doesn’t count) because i’d like my son to eat with us more and i’ve bombarded him with fish in this last year or two and he is so insanely off fish now. he’s not thrilled with the number of veg dishes either but too bad. plus he often ends up liking them if he gives them a chance. and i’m adding pasta once a week, or will try to anyway. i don’t typically cook pasta that often but 1) i got a pasta maker from my lovely children at christmas and cannot wait to put it to use! and 2) the other two people that live here love pasta-based meals. and then of course, we’ll have date night once a week! that’s a given!
