Meatless in March
The idea for this month came to me last week at work. I wanted to do something fun and different that yall could participate in and then, BAM, at 4:30 in the morning I thought “Meatless in March“! Its perfect—just like Sleepless in Seattle!!!!!” What does going meatless in march have to do with Sleepless in Seattle? Absolutely nothing my friends, but it sounded good after a thermos of coffee while pulling croissants out of the oven at 4:30. My coworkers think I’m nuts. Oh well. Anyways, we are in the season of Lent and even though I’m not big on giving up things and would rather add on something, I think this is an act of compassion and sacrifice that would do us all some good.
So, if you will, please join me for a completely meat (and fish) free month. And now here is the fun stuff—-if you PROMISE me you are committing, let me know via comment on this post, and at the end of the month I will pick a random winner to receive a big ol’ batch of my super charge me cookies….baked just for you! I also thought it would be fun for us all to share our favorite vegetarian recipes—I am thinking maybe on Friday afternoons the people that are participating could leave a comment on my lunch post with their favorite simple meal that they made last week. It could be breakfast, lunch OR dinner. Sound good?
So, to kick off Meatless in March (and my Sunday!) I made a big batch of fluffy whole wheat pancakes for breakfast! I used my favorite mix ever–Kodiak–and topped my two large pancakes with almond butter, maple syrup and strawberries and had a 365 brand vegetarian sausage patty on the side for some extra protein
And now I can officially say that I have completely finished a jar of almond butter BY MYSELF in 8 days.
Nope, there are definitely NOT 14 servings in that jar. Haha 🙂
This morning I woke up 5:30 and since I didn’t want to start breakfast that early, I just snacked on a banana while I read Psalms and blogs
I’m headed to church, then to lunch with 10 fabulous blog readers (and bloggers!). Enjoy your Sunday!
