Meatless Mondays

My friend over at Mommy Porch has been posting for months about her Meatless Mondays.   I didn't realize until I read an article in this week's Washington Post that it was an organized movement.

I stopped eating meat when I was 19 and pretty much stuck to that routine until I was in my 30's.  Then I would eat the occasional piece of chicken while out dining and when I was pregnant with my daughter, I really craved chicken.  So slowly, meat has worked it's way back into my diet.  After all, there is a 1/2 of hog sitting in my freezer.  I would say that meat is still not a mainstay of our diets - chicken once a week and fish once a week and the rest of the time is really vegetable based. 

In any case, with the harvest starting of my own garden and my CSA set to start to deliver in a couple of weeks, I think I will try to follow the Meatless Monday routine and blog about it like my friend Mommy Porch.  Tomorrow for dinner will be risotto with fresh peas.

Speaking of porches, I was sitting outside on my porch shelling peas and enjoying looking at my garden.  It doesn't get any better than that.

I love my porch!

  1. I am envious of your homegrown peas! I bought some at a market this afternoon and plan on using them in tomorrow night's pasta primavera.

    Love your porch!
