Meatless Monday

Stanzie is worried......
We are not going vegetarian, (not that there is anything wrong with that). We still like meat. Very, Very Much. But, we do love our veg and we grow a lot of veg. So, we have decided to celebrate veggies, and go meatless one day a week!

Okay, I have to admit, Dad, Stanzie and I were skeptical about 'Meatless Monday'. But Mom made this super yummy 'Portobello Medallions au Poivre', for Dad (Courtesy of Rachel Ray Magazine). She served it with brown rice and asparagus. Dad licked his plate clean!
 Mom says: "It's not the prettiest thing we have ever made, but the flavors made up for that!"

Stanzie and I, had something called 'Doggy Vittles' from the cookbook, 'Real Food for Dogs'.

Preheat oven to 350 F.
Combined these ingredients in a large bowl and blend thoroughly:

1 cup cooked rice
2/3 cup grated cheese
1/2 cup finely chopped carrots
1/2 cup finely chopped zucchini
1/3 cup applesauce
1 egg beaten
1 tablespoon brewer's yeast

Pour the mix in a casserole dish and bake for 12-15 minutes.
Cool and serve. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.....WHAT LEFTOVERS!!
OMD!! Stanzie and I, licked our bowls clean too!! I guess one day a week without meat, is not going to kill us. Keep it coming Mom!
How many more days until next Monday?
Yum Yum Yum



  1. ooo those mushrooms sure look good!


  2. Oh yum, that actually sounds delicious! We too sometimes get "meatless meals" once in a while. We would just get brown rice, pumpkin, green veggies, potatoes & oats. We like it a lot!

  3. I personally wants to see a foto of your dad lickin' his plate clean...BOL!
    And hey theres a doxie on da cookbook...COOL!

    PS: you missed da map of Blogville on yesterdays post. I have Wyatt's Gardens on theres...hehehe!

  4. We love vegetables!
    Sometimes when mom makes soup, we got to beg on our knees, so she let us eat some!

  5. OMD OMD... I have MangoLike Slobbers hanging down!! ummmmmmmmmmm

  6. I think portobellos could make anything delish and no one would miss the meat! That recipe sounds great.

    Stumpy would be happy with egg and cheese every day!

    We're glad you didn't feel deprived!

    Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!
    Stumpy and me

  7. We would go meatless too if momma made that good stuff

  8. It looks delicious to us! Lots of love, Holly and mom

  9. YUM!! Thanks for the recipe, Wyatt!! Both the human and the doggie meals look delish!!

  10. This does sound good-I like going meatless one day a week.

  11. The Momster thinks the mushrooms and asparagus would be delish - while we all think that veggie and rice dish would be quite tasty. Cheese --- yummers!!!

  12. You always do have the best recipes. I think we need to turn more veggie friendly too.

  13. That looks fabulous!!!! I am going to have to try that!!! I am not a huge fan of meat... Well okay I am a liar... I grew up not really liking the texture of meat, this caused many fights with my parents who were constantly trying to get me to eat my chicken or fish (they weren't really red meat eaters), but after meeting my husband, he has helped me realize that I was missing out on fabulous things like steak!!!! But I still prefer veggie meals... So this looks amazing to me!!!! Thank you for sharing!!!!

  14. The mushroom dish does look good for mom but I'm on a raw meat does mix in some vegis with it as well.

  15. It sounds to me like you not only enjoyed the dinner but did the washing up afterwards as well so thats got to be good lol.

  16. Hey Wyatt!
    Wow, that sounds really yummy! Portabellos are supposed to be the best and I bet those dishes were clean enough to go right back into the dishwasher needed!
    Grr and a Slobbering Woof,

  20. Meatless Monday's is a great idea Wyatt. That should keep you and your humans nice and healthy.
    I'll have to look for the cookbook! Thanks for the tips!

  21. We love portabello's!! We are up to TWo nights meatless a week!! We have cut way back on the portion size of the meat that we eat when we eat meat. I am ready to go meatless but Tom is not. He wants to ease into it!! So we are easing!! Your meal could have been better with oregano!! We use it every night and it gos in Bambi's food too!!
