Meat-Free Monday: Oops Edition

I did take a picture of my Meat-Free Monday meal; however, I didn't upload it to Eugene. So, oops. No photo this week. It was leftovers anyway, but I'm going to pretend like it wasn't.

Here's what I had: Cucumber, Red Onion, and Grape Tomato Salad on Spinach with a BBQ Vinegrette and Twisty Pasta with a Spinach Pesto.

The spinach pesto was the star. OMG. So yum. I followed a basic Joy of Cooking pesto recipe, but instead of basil, used spinach. It was like 2 cups loosely packed spinach, 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, 1/3 cup pine nuts, 2 cloves of garlic, and 1/2 cup of olive oil.

Oh, and instead of parmesan cheese, I used fulvi pecorino romano, which looks like parmesan cheese but is made from sheep's milk. So, it's very strong and flavorful. Total yumminess. Of course, as I ate it, I couldn't help but think, "Mike would hate this." I smiled and ate more.

Not much else exciting is going on. Perhaps, I'll think of something interesting later on ...



  1. Goatmilk products kick ass. Goats are some funny folks.

  2. goblinbox: True. but ... um ... what does that have to do with this post? *smooches*

  3. You mentioned sheep, so I mentioned goats.

  4. goblinbox: um. like. ok. *backs away slowly*
