Taco salad tonight.

One of my sons is trying out eating vegetarian. I want to support him, although he's told me he'll gladly make a pb&j when I want to make something like meatloaf. I already cook for two gluten-free people and one allergic to milk. Why not add vegetarian?! Sometimes I'll offer meat on the side, but I need a handful more good vegetarian meals. I'm sure there are old threads to search, so I'll start there. Oh, and my other son's new girlfriend is vegan. I need to get busy.

Tonight we had aglio e olio and some bbq meatballs. Yesterday we had Guo Kui which is a favorite of one of my kids. It’s basically meat smeared onto dough, rolled up, flattened and fried. Second pic in this link. http://food.chinesecio.com/en/articl...ent_155337.htm

We still have leftovers from Christmas so I made turkey casserole because I'm sick of the sight of leftover turkey in the kitchen. The taste, however, I can definitely live with

Taco soup (just skip the meat - I always do, it's vegan as well)

And here are all the vegan options on my blog (and everything is GF and dairy free)

Virginia and Singingmom, check out ohsheglows.com. I've found her book by the same title at several libraries. Her recipes are easy, fast, flavorful, healthful, made with 'typical' ingredients and are all vegan. Most are soy and gluten free, too. I'm betting you can find recipes that please everyone without having to be a short order cook.

It does get easier ( hug) but I know how hard it is at first, when suddenly you don't feel like you have a clue how to cook anything.


I love the yummly webpage and app. You can set up filters and then serch though that. I use it alot when I am trying to find a safe recipe if something that I can no longer make. I love being able to serch 'cheese chicken broccoli and rice casirol' and it giving me back vegan soy free options.

Tonight my family is having a peanut padthi. I am going to a water color class.
