Less Animal, More Vegetable

Before it became quite so trendy, I aspired to be mostly vegetarian.  Though I never really succeeded in eliminating meat, I did reduce my intake; as a single college student, I consumed red meat on a monthly rather than weekly basis.

Tonight I think I will experiment and try making Indian Dal in the place of lentil soup.  Lentil soup has been making weekly menu appearances for many months now.

I also have an online article with 10 of our favorite meatless meals, which I alluded to in a post last month.  Per the editor's request, I removed several links to recipes.   Here is a quick list of 6 links I had to take out:

So "Che ba!" That's Mandarin Chinese for "dig in!"
