New year’s resolution update: Meat free Mondays

Today I had my second meat-free Monday!

Last week (02/01/12) I made Lemony basil spaghetti with mascarpone, chilli and chives, although to be good I replaced the mascarpone with half fat cream cheese. I was really nice, and the boyfriend ate it too – even if he did supplement it with some chicken thing. I loved how it was creamy and spicy at the same time. I intended to cook for two but had enough leftover for lunch too – always a treat.

Today (09/01/12) I made a mushroom stroganoff with wild rice. Again a Good Food recipe, which had me searching Wolverhampton for a vegetarian equivalent of Worcester Sauce. The recipe is for two so I’ll have the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. I’m already looking forward to it.

While I was munching away on my delicious mushroom dish made from scratch, boyfriend, eating a packet of supernoodles and a chicken thing,  suddenly asked:

“Why do you do these meat free Mondays?”

Oh, there are so many reasons! For me, the main reasons are

  1. It’s good for the environment¬†
  2. It’s good for me
  3. It encourages me to cook something I’ve not made before, from scratch.
I would link to the recipes but it seems the BBC Good Food website is “having a wobble”.
