So I was hanging out on Twitter today and saw one of my Tweeps, amoyal, mention that today was #MeatlessMonday. I had never heard of this particular Twitter tag, but I got pretty excited since it’s so close to what I want to do with Vegan Weekend. Anyway, never one to let a good Twitter tag go, I figured I couldn’t not start doing #MeatlessMonday posts.
(For the record, I’ve already been reminded Mondays are hard enough, so giving up meat is just cruel. I, however reminded my friend I wasn’t asking him to give up caffeine! ;))
So, the long and short of it is that you can be 100% sure that every post I write on Monday will be completely meatless.
Like today’s recipe for:
Lasagna Made With Italian Sausage Match Meat
Using delicious Match Meat flavored Italian Sausage, Mrs. WellDone, BWD, Jr., and I made our own lasagnas this evening. Me, I like lots of sauce, garlic, and mushrooms. Mrs. WellDone likes lots of cheee. BWD, Jr. likes noodles and that’s about it. So we all made our own. And to get some protein and the flavor of meat, we used Match Meat Italian Sausage.
The Italian Sausage Match Meat was perfect. It was spicy like Italian sausage should be and it crumbled like Italian sausage, so the texture was ideal, but at the same time, there was a ton less grease, making it healthier, too. I know that to a lot of people going without meat may seem like a huge deal, but no one missed!
