I actually probably eat one meat meal a week, though I cook more meat than that for DH and the border. I was a strict vegetarian but when I became anemic the doctor wanted me to add some meat protein to my diet. I do a lot of pastas, meal salads, and items where you can add meat or not. I do eat chicken and fish more than I do red meat.

We did a vegetarian dinner last night, thought I'd share as it was quite enjoyable (though it was a very casual, snacky meal). We had homemade pitas, roasted garlic & hummus with some goat brie. Feta probably would have been more thematic and calamata olives would have fit in nicely, but we had enough as it was. In fact we had some calamatas in the house and talked about bringing some out, but by the time we remembered them, we were both well on the way to stuffed and didn't feel the need to add anything to the selection.

It should be noted that most cheeses will probably not qualify if you want to be strict about your vegetarian nights, since most cheese is made with rennet, which is generally considered a meat product. But if you decide to allow chicken/beef broth, then I'm sure cheeses should be fine too.

That's a good idea with the tortillas, kitchenelf. I'm always looking for ways to use up a package after it's been opened.

Give us this day our daily bacon.
