My Meatless Mondays - December 27, 2010

Thanks to all of you for the wonderful recipes that continue to come in.  I hope, you get to try many of these.

Wishing all of you a Happy New Year.  Any food declarations to make for January 1st?


  • to learn to use my camera correctly
  • to bake more with yeast
  • to make ice cream now that I have a machine
  • to find those ingredients, I see in recipes, and have not located, yet
  • to challenge myself
  • to but the items, needed in the kitchen - first shipment on the way
  • not to buy cookbooks
Share some of yours.

Spotlight from last week is on:

Haggis and the Herring (love that name) and the chickpea snack

The Cottage Sisters with their veggie chicken in cream sauce.  Yummy good.
 Tezscape with such original recipes as Dumplings in Fermented Glutinous Rice.  Check out this book on Amazon.


  1. I have a huge food declaration ...little daunting. I'm doing a new meatless recipe every day for the new year. I now have less than a week left to slack off. Eep! I'm linking Mushroom Meatball Subs with Red Wine Mushroom Sauce (the meatballs are stuffed with cheese. Yum.)

  2. I wish you luck in your list of things you want to improve on in 2011 I to have a similar list

  3. Thanks for the spotlight!

    Happy New Year to you and your family.

  4. Chaya, I think this will be the last Meatless Monday for year 2010! :o) Wishing you & your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. May god bless you all. Happy Holiday & have lots of fun! See you next year.
    Best wishes, Kristy ((hugs)) & kisses

  5. I love the declarations, particularly not to buy cookbooks. I have so many that it's really hard to justify more, but I always want the latest greatest! We try to have "vegetarian night" for dinner at least once a week, against my hungry husband's wishes, but I'm going to try to be more diligent about it this year!

  6. Thanks for the reminder to check my 2010 food resolutions and see how I did. I love yours for 2011!

  7. One of my food declarations for the coming year is to definitely have at least one day of the week reserved for a meatless meal. I've already started and so far so good!

  8. I know what you mean about needing to learn more about camera usage, I'm seriosly thinking about taking lessons. Good luck! Miriam@Meatless Meals For Meat Eaters

  9. i share quite a few of your food declarations , the major one being to do more of yeast spotting--
    and this roundup by you has given me some nice ideas for recipes ! thanks !!

  10. I want to work on my photography skills as well. I also want to cook more from my cookbook collection. I concentrate so much on developing my own recipes sometimes that I don't give myself a chance to relax and cook from my cookbooks. Thank you so much for hosting and Happy New Year to you and your family, Chaya!

  11. I love your resolutions Chaya! I need to start thinking of some of my own. Last year my resolution was to bake all of my own bread and not buy any...and I stuck to it! I need to think of something to top that for this year!

  15. I hadn't even thought of my resolutions yet. I need to learn how to use my new camera and start cooking from my cookbooks more before I buy anymore! Good luck with yours Chaya!

  16. I just stumbled on this blog and am looking forward to more meatless monday recipe ideas! I linked up tonight's hit dinner recipe for hearty sweet potato chili. Thanks for hosting! Rachel at

  17. I just came across your site and love the ideas. I try to cook without meat a few times a week to save money and to expose my family to other forms of protein! I look forward to trying some of these recipes.
