We're always up for a challenge in the Fluttering Butterfly house, and here's our latest: to go vegetarian for a couple weeks in a row. Not strictly. We had lamb at my mother in law's house the other day and we threw some leftover bacon into some fried rice at the beginning of the week, but other than that, vegetarians. (the kind that eat dairy products as well as fish) It won't be forever, we both love meat too much to give it up entirely.
We both feel a little bad about the treatment of animals that provide us with meat, but that isn't our sole reason for this meat-free weeks. It's the rising cost of everything lately! Not buying meat is saving us money on our shopping bill, and really, every little bit counts, right?
So let's hear it. What do you think about going vegetarian? Eating meat? The treatment of animals? Any tips and advice for me? Recipes? What are your creative ways to beat the credit crunch?
