Weekly Recipe Round (Up) 24

Hey y’all!  I know I usually post recipes on Sunday or Monday so I’m a little late to the game this week…but I have to get back into the groove of managing my website since It was down for a couple of months.

BUT never fear!  I am back and ready to share some absolutely delicious recipes with you!!!

The theme this week?  Vegetarian recipes!!!

If it were not for my husband, I would be a vegetarian.  I could really do without meat.

I’ve actually tried it before but I ended up having to make two meals basically since I didn’t want to eat just sides and now with two kids and one on the way…that just isn’t going to happen.

So, even if I don’t get to eat meals like this often, I can live vicariously through you, right?!?

And since I just started Round 1 of Country Heat, in honor of that, I’m going to share all 21 Day Fix Approved Vegetarian Recipes with you!!!  YUMMY!
