Here We Go!

OK...I have never really had any interest in having a blog...but after about a dozen people asked me for some meatless recipe ideas, I thought this would be the perfect venue to share some!

So this is how I came to be here: 2 1/2 years ago as a New Year's Resolution, my husband decided to eat vegetarian for one month and see if he could do it. He found that it wasn't that hard...especially if he had a time when he knew he could enjoy a favorite meat dish once in a while. So he started eating meat only one weekend a month. At the beginning, I didn't change my cooking at all. He would just pick out the meat, or I would leave it separate. But as the months and years passed, our family's diet slowly changed to mirror his. And it has been wonderful! We eat so many more veggies now and my cooking has become very simplified! When people ask my hubby if he is a vegetarian, his reply is always: "Well, I'm more of a Sparitarian". ; )

Many friends have asked me, "So, what exactly do you eat?" and so here it is..."The Sparitarian". I will post one meatless recipe a week on "Meatless Monday" (hopefully with pictures). If you have any great simple vegetarian recipes that you want me to feature...please email me...I'm always looking for new ones!


  1. Looks great. Make sure to post plenty that are not in the cookbook so I can have a plethora to choose from!

  2. Yeah! I'm so excited for your new blog! Now I have something more to look forward to on Mondays!

  3. This is going to be great! I'm so glad you've decided to blog about this...Meatless Mondays will make Mondays something to look forward to!

    (I don't use real names/locations when blogging, so think really hard - you know me. Girls Camp, YI, and you sent me a note about this blog on facebook! Sorry I never got around to emailing you - things are CRAZY around here!)
