Meatless Monday / Week

Happy Monday! To all of you that have off today, please think about your friends working and try not to continuously post about sleeping in, being bored, relaxing, and so on. But of course enjoy your day off 🙂

This week will mark the first full week of my meatless meals during Lent. AND B and I only have two things going on this week (I know, it’s hard to believe), meaning we’ll likely eat at home three full nights together. So what do we have planned?

Yesterday/Sunday: Veggie Crock Pot Casserole  (we’ll be eating leftovers for lunch this week) and corn bread

Monday: Fish with roasted potatoes and Brussels sprouts
(lunch will be leftover veggie crock pot casserole)

Tuesday: Garbanzo Bean, Lentil and Vegetable Stew (from my Bon Appetit cookbook) with corn bread
(lunch is planned out with some people)

Wednesday: Spicy Black Bean Burgers (made on Sunday night and frozen ahead of time)
(lunch will be leftover veggie crock pot casserole and a salad)

Thursday: B and I both have things after work so we’ll probably eat on our own
(lunch will be out as I have an all day meeting)

Friday: Out to dinner for Downtown Cleveland Restaurant Week!
(lunch will be out with coworkers)

Next week is a little crazier, with me only home for dinner on Monday and possibly Wednesday … but here’s to week one!

A few questions for the three of you that read my blog (hi Mom, Jane and Cari!):

  • Have you ever gone meat-free? For a week? A day? 
  • What are your favorite vegetarian meals? (Seriously, please share!)
  • What do you give up for Lent?

  1. Can you tell me a little about Meatless Monday? I’ve heard about it here and there. I’m guessing it has something to do with cutting back on the amount of meat you eat every week? I already have meatless Fridays for Lent. 🙂 (I gave up soda for Lent but I think it’s amazing that you chose to give up meat!)

    • Meatless Monday is an international campaign to get people to go meatfree one day a week (often, Mondays). It’s also known as Meat Free Mondays. I decided that this Lenten period, I’d see if I could go completely meatfree, or as much as possible. It’s been fun so far – especially trying out the new recipes. Here’s more info:

      Good luck with giving up soda! I can’t imagine that.
