We don't eat a ton of meat. Much to my son's despair, that is. But don't get me wrong. My family likes a good steak or burger. And don't forget bacon. Still, we try to be mindful about things in our own haphazard way, and I was tooling around on the internets one day and stumbled across this site. So Meat Free Monday it is. I like nothing more than a little structure in my life.
It's taking a bit to get our sea legs under us. (Which means, I kept forgetting for a couple of weeks there) And after weeks of yogurt and toast for breakfast, Callum asked for bacon yesterday and I had the plate in front of him before I remembered. But! After those six pieces were were golden. And Neel and I carried the banner for the family.
It's so easy to go meat free in the summer. This quick, off-the-cuff pasta dish is brimming with fresh veggies. Mushrooms, zucchini and squash, quickly sauteed in a bit of olive oil, then reduced with a bit of sherry and bound together with a splash of cream. We tossed some parm in there and we were off.
All it needs is a bit of bacon.
