  1. Food challenges
    With grocery prices ever-rising, in 2012 I am challenging myself to do one meatless dinner at least once a week. We can do eggs or cheeses, just looking to cut out the expensive meat! Let's see how I do with it, and if it makes any kind difference in the budget. If I stick with it, that's at...

  3. Food challenges
    One or two days a week, I make meatless meals and I thought maybe some would be interested in doing this along with me. If you are vegetarian or vegan, please join in ~ I would love to see what you serve. So for this challenge, all you have to do is go meatless on Monday for dinner. No meat...

    Anyone else here observe Lent? Is anyone else meatless on Friday's during Lent? My BF is catholic (i'm in the process of converting) and we've decided to start observing more practices. Anyone have any favorite meals or suggestions for meatless fridays? I've looked up meatless meals but I'd like...

    Just curious what delicious meals you make that are meatless. I have a tough time with this because DH likes to have meat. My DDaddy always wanted meat with his meals as well, so I grew up this way. I know it would save a little money each week to have at least one meatless meal. I'd...

    In another thread, several were talking about instituting meatless meal nights due to rising costs. Could someone share what their menu would be? I'm really drawing a blank right now on how I could do this with my family? Thanks.

    I make squash casserole with cream of soup, sour cream and cheese. I usually make some sort of meat to go with it. DH recently told me he didn't care if we had meat with it, so now I just skip it and make a salad and bread. I don't mind it at all. Just like a homemade macaroni and cheese meal to...

    I was just thinking of this and was just curious. Usually I try to do at least a couple, more if I can get away with it. Dh does like his meat. Tonight though, we will be on our third night of a meatless meal. No one has complained and I don't think they've even noticed. You? How...

    I'm looking for some meatless recipes to add to my meal plan. I see some online, but am looking for tried and true suggestions. It needs to be somewhat simple and nothing too terribly funky.

    For those of you who give up meat on Fridays during Lent, what do you make for dinner?  I do the standards.... tomato soup & grilled cheese, tuna casserole, veggie pizza (fresh veggies on a Boboli crust with a can of light alfredo sauce over it~ yum!), or sometimes breakfast foods.    DH...

    At 50 calories, and 3.5 grams fat each, these are rather tasty little things :) I cooked one, and could see the grease on it, so dabbed/squeezed off a lot with my napkin. The taste was a lot like what regular sausage tastes like :) But it was a little dryer, perhaps because I dabbed it? :D I...

    Hi, I have started to cut meat out of my diet. I was wondering if there were any good meatless crockpot recipes out there, something you have actually tried and like to eat! All I have done so far are crockpot baked potatoes. I need more! Thanks! Susan
