Meat can definitely be expensive and I can see where that saves money. My husband and I would just make a salad out of whatever is left in the fridge.

i was a vegetarian for almost 18 years. but when i was pregnant with my twins i started sneaking buffalo wings while in my car parked in grocery parking lots. i decided maybe it was time to start eating meat again. i don’t eat as much meat as i did at first and still use meatless “meats” often. they have come along way since when i first became a vegetarian and certainly have their favored spots in some of my cooking. this is a great list of recipes!

Love all these recipe suggestions. I always end up making the same tuna casserole. But you have some great ideas. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the great recipes! I’m always looking for some meatless dishes I can make that my kids will still eat! As always you have the best ideas!

Yup! LOVE the Lazy Day Lasagna. There’s never a wrong time for Lasagna, especially if it’s wallet friendly!
