Menu Plan Tuesday – Week of October 14th – Day 13 of 31

I keep falling further and further behind on my Write 31.  I've mind mapped out the recipes I would like to share during the remainder of this year's Write 31.  Last night instead of writing, I was cleaning out my pajama drawer and my wardrobe. I could almost wear a different pair of pajamas for… Continue reading Menu Plan Tuesday – Week of October 14th – Day 13 of 31

Vegetarian Sloppy Joes – Day 12 of 31

My favorite homemade meat substitute – Day 11 of 31

As I previously said, I don't like textured vegetable protein as a meat substitute.  The only one I enjoy is the Ground "Beefless" Beef from Trader Joes. Sometimes I want to make one without any weird ingredients.  So I found a way to have a meat substitute with only 2 ingredients. Mushrooms can have a… Continue reading My favorite homemade meat substitute – Day 11 of 31

Boy, Was It Hot! – What I ate at the Outdoor Experience – Day 9 of 31

During the first weekend in October, a local park has an Outdoor Experience.  Visitors can try out different outdoor experiences, watch dogs jump off a dock, and camp out, etc . . .

Better than Restaurant Oven Home Fries – Day 7 of 31 (Sheet pan recipe)

While I was sick with my gallstones last year,  I had one food that did not bother my stomach.  Okay, it did bother me if it was greasy but if it was cooked with no oil or grease, I had little to no problems. Potatoes were my friend during those 4 months.  I would spiralize… Continue reading Better than Restaurant Oven Home Fries – Day 7 of 31 (Sheet pan recipe)

Sometimes You Need “Beef” Tacos – Day 6 of 31

I'm teaching my students how to write narratives so I've been doing a lot of model writing for them.  A good narrative has a hook that gets the reader to want to read your story.  This is a skill that I struggle with when I'm writing my blog posts. However it is important for a… Continue reading Sometimes You Need “Beef” Tacos – Day 6 of 31

Snack Boxes – The Hard Boiled Egg Version (Vegetarian Meal Prep) – Day 4 of 31

If I don't have a plan of what I am going to eat during the week, then I feel out of sync. There are some weeks that I know that all I'm going to be able to eat is snacky types of foods.  Foods that I can eat while working at my desk or even… Continue reading Snack Boxes – The Hard Boiled Egg Version (Vegetarian Meal Prep) – Day 4 of 31

Greek Pasta Salad (Meal Prep) – Day 3 of 31

In August, I finally got to meet some family members I had never met  before.  They live on the west coast, Oregon, and don't get to Ohio very often. My mom's first cousin, their mother, lives in the Phoenix area.  She comes into town more often than her children.  She was planning to visit the… Continue reading Greek Pasta Salad (Meal Prep) – Day 3 of 31

Fruit on the Bottom Yogurt (Meal Prep) – Day 2 of 31

When you buy Greek yogurt with fruit on the bottom, the price ranges from around $0.70 at Aldi's to almost $2.00. It's easy to make your own.  Making your own is also economical. I purchase my frozen fruit and Greek yogurt at Aldi's for about $5.  You can make about 6 to 7 fruit on… Continue reading Fruit on the Bottom Yogurt (Meal Prep) – Day 2 of 31

Welcome to 31 Days of Vegetarian Meals (Day 0 of 31)

Last February, I was in the midst of my gallbladder disease.  On February 12th, I ate kielbasa from my favorite childhood butcher. The next day I was very sick.  Even though I did eat some chicken salad that day, I made the decision to start eating vegetarian. So Valentine's Day/ Ash Wednesday 2018 is my… Continue reading Welcome to 31 Days of Vegetarian Meals (Day 0 of 31)
