No More Meat!

No More Meat!

Well, since RJ has decided he is a vegetarian my husband  have decided to go on the journey with him and remove red meat, chicken or turkey from his diet and only eat fish and salmon. I am now scrambling to find delicious vegetarian recipes and fun ideas for lunch and dinner. I have found a few great recipes on blogs and now just coming up with others randomly. Let’s see if RJ will try some of the fish and add that to his menu.

My first attempt at a vegetarian recipe for dinner was not as bad I thought. Here goes!
