The Kitchen: Going Meatless?
My husband, however, differs in opinion. This brings me to last night's dinner.... I cooked some whole grain brown rice with my homemade chicken stock, sauteed lots of onions and bell peppers (with a hint of coconut oil-- which smelled heavenly!), heated a can of organic black beans, and mixed a large avocado with the juice from a fresh lime. Throw this in a bowl with a sprinkle of cheese, and voila meatless burrito bowls!
Our girls loved them and ate a huge dinner-- even asking for seconds!
I didn't tell Dave we were going meatless, and halfway through dinner this was our conversation:
Dave: "I see you are implementing our latest documentary."
Me: "Yes, isn't it delicious? I can taste the hint of lime and coconut oil. Mmmm."
Dave: "It is good. I just keep thinking how it would be really good with some chicken or steak."
So dear readers, I am not yet sure if our family will be going meatless a couple nights a week.
What do you think? Does it still seem like a meal to you if you didn't have meat? What is your favorite vegetarian meal?
