  1. Always great meatless Mondays post! Love the quote! I can be honest & say that I most likely will never be vegetarian but I can do some meatless days! 😉 Have a great one!

  2. I thought it was always Mothers that said “Eat your Vegetables”. After all they are great philosophers, serve others all the time and most are non-violent.

    I used to hate vegies, as a kid but now love most of them. Our backdoor neighbor says she has a good soup she makes just for vegetarians when they visit, so maybe we will be able to feed Karma and Jimmy when they come here this week.

    Have a good day all. Momb

    • You are very funy Momb! You are right, mothers are great philosophers and most are typically non-violent and they do have a thing for vegetables! i thought dad might want to try the zucchini on the grill :).

  3. We know that for some giving up meat, even one day a week, is not easy, so in the spirit of understanding, I have chosen Meatless Mondays as one of the days that I go Vegan. I’ve been a vegetarian for 25 years now, but I am still working on being a vegan. Today I drank my ice coffee and ate my cereal with Almond Milk, which really was good and tasted better than the 1% milk Dana drinks! I skipped the cheese on my vege burger and I plan to eat Joe’s O’s for dinner (I’m working late at the office so it has to be something quick and easy).

  4. I never would have guessed that was Ghandi. Zucchini looks great. Sadly, that would never leave the plates in this house (unless I eat it); I’m still battling over veggies with the boys. I think I’m going to hunt for some blackbean brownies. shhh.
