Veggie Tales

This is what I have been up to in the past week besides knitting a baby blanket...which should be blocked tonight...just gotta weave in those dang ends...ick.

I made a Mexican Lasagna last night with a side of Spanish Rice and tortilla chips. I'm so proud...my husband actually said he would like to have this again. I said, " Well, how about lunch tomorrow." That's what I'm having. It was dang good. I've been getting all of my recipes, except the lentil soup, from those Martha Stewart Everyday Food mini magazines. There are a ton of vegitarian recipes in those and they are really good. This lasagna has a spinach/cilantro mix layered with pinto beans, salsa and pepper jack cheese on corn tortillas. It was super easy.

Also, another thing I'm excited about...a coworker asked me today if I have lost some weight. I can't believe someone can actually tell. Yippie. I've lost almost 10 lbs. This is a good thing! Note: that's a play on words since I mentioned Martha up above...dumb huh?

That looks SO good! We don't eat much meat just because at night (which is the only meal I've really committed to making, besides the weekend when the whole fam is here for lunch too) I don't feel like eating meat and potato dishes- too much food! And, I honestly think there's no better way to feel better about yourself than to eat plenty of veggies and fruit. But, I have to admit that I'm always seeking what main dishes I can make using veggies. This one looks divine. Could you tell me what issue this recipe is in and do you know if it's available on Martha's website?

I need to get a subscription to that mag. Have you checked out their cookbook, Great Food Fast (or it might be Good)? It's awesome. There might not be as many veggie recipes in there as you would like, but there are just some great, easy, recipes that come together quickly with ingredients that are easy to find at any grocery store. And there is an Everyday Food TV show on PBS which is nice- I think if you go to the PBS website, you can find some more recipes.

I need to find the recipe for this one, I bet it would be a hit at our house.

Damn girl! You've lost 10 lbs just since your 1st vegetarian post? That's pretty amazing.

Good for you!

I really love the Everyday Food magazines too. You're right, there is always a handful of yummy looking vegetarian recipes.
