This is a new thing that I hope to keep going. These dishes might not be cooked on a Monday but I’ll be publishing them on Mondays. T and I are both vegetarians – he more than me. I will eat anything without a face – this means scallops, clams, oysters, mussels (other bi-valves), jellyfish, sea cucumber and the likes. He wears vegan leather shoes and I… well, I do still own nice leather handbags but I’m trying not to buy anything that’s real leather anymore. We are not vegans – this means milk, eggs and honey are still game.
Anyway, these are simple things I cook and some are recipes modified (if I know the original source, I’ll list it). I’m not trying to make everyone vegetarian but you have to admit that we do eat more meat than we need these days. How about going meatless, just on Mondays?
