I recently had a birthday. Like, less than a month ago. Just after my birthday, I made a list of things I wanted to get done or have made into habits by the time my next birthday rolled around. One of my “habits” to be formed is that I want to start participating in “Meatless Mondays”. Sounds good, right?
Well, I had my list made just before New Year’s Eve, which means there’s only been two Mondays I’ve been challenged to so far. And the first one was a holiday & we went out to breakfast & I totally stole some of Bill’s corned beef hash.
However, that’s no excuse to give up. I have to push on & keep trying. Only, really, I suck at both vegetarian cooking and, more generically, meal planning. So I’m looking for recipes and tips.
What are some of your favorite vegetarian recipes out there?
What do you do to make a meal come together? Are you, like my friend Marty (I’m told), set on the idea of “a meal consists of at least one each of the following: starch, protein, veggie”? Or are you more like me and occasionally say, “Meh. I just roasted a butternut squash and we can eat that.” Do you do anything special if it’s a vegetarian meal rather than a meal with meat?
Thanks for your advice, folks!
