Broiled Shrimp with Feta, Orzo, and Tomatoes
Yum! This one's another recipe from _The Rock Cafe Cookbook._

Sloppy Joes and Corn on the Cob with Cajun Herbed Butter
This was a farmer's market special. Buffalo substituted for the ground beef, which is leaner, and the corn is finally in season! Woo-hoo!

Red Pepper and Onion Sandwiches

Vegetarian Stuff...

Meatless Tacos

Bean and Cheese Burritos

Tortilla and Black Bean Casserole

Lentil and Veggie Tostadas

Pasta Primavera

So, that's a lot of vegetarian meals right there at the end. I can't say I'm ready to totally eschew meat, but I must say, it's quite a bit cheaper when you're not buying those expensive cuts of meat.


Sometimes when you're trying new things, they don't work out. (See also listening to friends' musical suggestions, trying out new restaurants, viewing documentaries you've never heard of...)

Here are a couple monumental recipe failures from the last week or two...

Beans with Pesto Bulgur
YECCCHHH! I was able to get two bites of this down before I realized I had made a horrible, horrible mistake! (Yes, you have to take the second bite to make sure you didn't somehow process it wrong.)

Couscous with Dried Fruit, Butternut Squash and Turmeric
Woah! I can't describe to you how much of a disappointment this one was.
