In case you missed me posting about food.. this week and next week are vegetarian recipes. I’ll be back with more comments from the peanut gallery in October…
I decided to make a change to my diet and incorporate more veggies and fruit..and the best way I felt to do that was to try out some vegetarian recipes. And by which I mean no beef, pork, or poultry. Milk, eggs and fish are acceptable.
