Going Meatless Monday

(Updates are posted here.)

Cutting the Cornbread

As a follow-up to my week of vegan eating, I have taken the Meatless Monday pledge. My family is even on board for dinnertime. (“Huh?” the boys gasped in alarm.)

For our first family Meatless Monday, I went all out.

Meatless Monday meal

I made a few dishes that were featured on the Meatless Monday web site:

I added a dish that I loved during my vegan week that was featured on the Zen Habits web site:

I also made:

  • Lentil and Vegetable Vindaloo (I just simmered lentils and veggies in a jarred curry sauce.)

I added a few dishes to make sure my youngest had something to eat:

  • Cornbread
  • Brussels sprouts (leftovers)

Family reaction:

My husband and I thought the meal was great. My boys were a little dubious. My youngest had a bowl of cereal after dinner.

There’s always next Monday.
