this has been my third meatless monday. i’m still shocked at the challenge this provides. for instance at lunch i really wanted a turkey sandwich on a blueberry bagel. instead i had fresh mozzarella with tomato, lettuce and pesto on a baguette, while watching the tour de france. now thinking back on this it all seems so perfect for the tour. i don’t think the turkey and blueberry bagel could have captured that european cycling feel. every time when it comes to dinner nothing sounds good. honestly at home when does a salad sound good. but so far i have been pleasantly surprised each time. this week when scavenging through my fridge, i’m working on eating things up that i already have on hand this week, i created a meal that turned out yummy and a tad fancy.
for meatless monday #3 i created stuffed tomatoes with hummus on a bed of lettuce drizzled with balsamic vinegar. along with it was what i called “cheesy-olive bread”, essentially bread with chopped up green olives topped with mozzeralla and toasted in the oven, and a cup of fresh blueberries. after this success i’m kind of getting excited and curious about what i’ll come up with for my next meatless monday.
