Mr. Hungry and I are going to try our best to eat meatless for a month, starting tomorrow, September 7th. There are a few reasons for this. For one thing, I wanted to challenge myself as a cook. I know I can create pretty good meals using meat, but I'm less skilled at cooking vegetable and vegetarian dishes creatively. Secondly, Mr. Hungry and I should probably be eating more vegetables than we do. And Mr. Hungry doesn't always like vegetables. So this is a good way to try to introduce him to some new ones that he'll hopefully enjoy.
Breakfast, I'm expecting, will be easy. Dinner shouldn't be too bad. Lunch will be the hardest, at least for my husband, as he's a big sandwich eater. I checked out Deborah Madison's bible of vegetarian cooking from the library, Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, and am armed with some recipes from elsewhere, too. Tonight, one last barbecue.
