And we went with tacos. I was meat free for most of the day! (I need my own place.)


It doesn't have to be Meat Free Monday: It could be Meat Free Tuesday, too, or Wednesday....<smiles!>  Around our house, we have inadvertent "Meatless Mondays" on random days of the week....never planned, just happen that way.....for us, it's more a matter of just cutting back on meat consumption.  I can't resist bacon, ribeyes, shrimp, turkey....

Molly Katzen's Moosewood Cookbook is a nice vegetarian cookbook!  The "Zuccanoes" are fun to make and delicious.  The Poundcake recipe in there is a killah.....some chocolate sauce drizzled on top, a bit of vanilla ice-cream.....oh, man!  Who needs dinner???

Does chicken count as a vegetable?  (Just kidding: that's what I routinely ask my vegetarian friends.....)a-hard-days-night-paul-1

It's the same way around our house. By cutting back on meat and other things I've been able to lower my cholesterol by more than 100 points and can still be looking forward to cooking and eating a full-blown-juice-down-your-chin-man-am-I-stuffed Thanksgiving dinner.

Meatless Monday* = Who likes pancakes? (Again!) a-hard-days-night-john-6

I went shopping for some of those frozen meals for work yesterday, where I discovered that if it's in the health/vegetarian section, it's automatically a buck more. Lucky for me, there's a good number of vegie selections in the omnivore area.

So why did you briefly add fish to your diet?

I actually find that funny. How vegetarians don't eat any animals, yet some of them eat fish. I don't bag vegetarians. If you don't like eating cows, you don't like eating cows. Simple. I'm neither a vegetarian nor a vegan. Although I'm not a meat crazed lunatic.

 

I sometimes even choose to not eat the meat on my plate. Dunno why, sometimes meat just puts me off.

I finally went one day sans meat. Granted, one "meal" was pretty much junk food, but I'm counting this as a win. a-hard-days-night-george-9

Thanks. I think I can manage another on Friday, and probably Saturday for my birthday. (HAHAHA Do you hear that everyone? You have to eat what I want for one whole day!)

I was wondering about that. I was going to pick up the missing ingredients for my salsa (my friend was saying that if it's blended, it's actually chili? Is that right, mithveaen?), so I thought I could pick up some plantains too.

Pick them up Skye... and remind me on Monday about the lentils. I don't work, it's Day of Dead, so I can prepare them.

 

Oh and your birthday is on Saturday!! Happy Birthday!! (In advance just in case I'm not around that day) a-hard-days-night-george-10

and here's your birthday gift Skye :)

 

This is really easy, all you need is eggplants, tomatoes, onions and green bellpeppers (these are optional, we skip them because the husband doesn't like them)

Cut the eggplants to around 1 cm-thick slices (you can rub them in salt and leave them for 15-20 minutes - my mjom says this takes out the bitter taste in them. I sometimes don't do this and it turns out ok)

Either deep fry the slices - or just drizzle some olive oil and bake them in the oven if you count your calories :)

 

Slice the tomatoes and bellpeppers and chop the onions (not finely).

In your oven tray place the ingredients in layers. (tomatoes in the bottom will give a sweet taste, this is what i do)

then eggplants, bellpeppers and onions on the top.

 

Add salt, pepper and your choice of spices (we add a mix of spices that;s called Arabic masala, or maybe it's the same as that all spice thing?) and a little cinnamon because we love love love it.

 

Don't add oil because the eggplants already retained some. just add some water (really little so you don't end up with lots of watery gravey) and cover the tray with foil paper (this is what it's called, no?) and put it in the oven for 30 minutes or so.

 

It's done when the onions are cooked but still a bit crunchy. n

 

wow! that was a long recipe, but believe me it's easy :)) I hope you like it

 

happy birthday!!

I'll send you an unidentified flying cupcake with a lit candle on Saturday a-hard-days-night-george-10

Wow skye - our birthdays are just a week apart - you this Saturday, me next Saturday. I believe I'm just a tad older though.

I'm ordering the new Lennon remasters to celebrate mine (I've shamelessly instructed my usual benefactors to "just give me money - that's what I want").a-hard-days-night-john-7

Are you doing anything special this weekend?a-hard-days-night-ringo-7

Wow - my very own Help! scarf. Too cool. Very coincidental too because i just ordered the movie today. I kinda went nuts on Amazon today (Lennon Remaster CD's, Help! and A Hard Day's Night DVD's). I may need that scarf to keep me warm this winter!

It's all in the mind you know. a-hard-days-night-george-10 I going hiking up in Flagstaff tomorrow, and Saturday, I'm not really sure. My brother has promised me a great lunch and "a gift that will change my life". Really.

Sorry it took me so long to respond to this and thank you for your birthday gift! I have a couple of questions:

1. If I bake it, what temperature should the oven be?

2. By Arabic masala, do you mean a type of curry powder? I tried googling it, but it the results were x-rated. neil-aspinall
