According to my office wall calendar, today is:
Hug a Vegetarian Day. :)
I also noted online that tomorrow, October 1st is World Vegetarian Day.
So make sure to hug all the vegetarians you know today and tomorrow. ;)
On a personal note, I’ve been a vegetarian for many years and have never regretted my decision to give up eating meat.
More and more people continue to embrace a vegetarian diet, for a number of reasons and there are millions of vegetarians around the world.
For me, it’s always been mainly an ethical choice to not eat meat, due in large part to reading: Diet for a New America by John Robbins, several years ago. I was shocked and saddened by what I read in that book and I never forgot it. :( I had been eating less and less meat for years, before reading that book. And after finishing the book (and it’s a very tough book to read, if you love animals) I gave it up completely.
On the plus side, I’ve been healthier and happier since I became a vegetarian and delighted by all the good things that can be created in the kitchen without any meat.
If you are in need of some vegetarian recipe inspiration, do check out the extensive recipe archives here at Veggies….
You can also check out my two cookbooks at Amazon.com:
Not Just for Vegetarians (print version only) and The Groovy Green Kitchen: Weeknight Veggie Slow Cooker (print and Kindle versions)
Have a Wonderful Week and Sending Lots of Hugs to YOU (to the meat-eaters too)!
PS: On a completely different topic, if you know anything about making CDs, please stop by over at My Poetic Path to read my post from today.

This oh-so yummy photo of Apple Brown Betty stopped me in my WP tracks this morning. ;) I want some right now.
I make a similar dessert but definitely not with that much butter or sugar. :( The photo did inspire me to make some soon though. :) Do you have a fav Brown Betty recipe?
Have a fabulous late autumn weekend. It’s still nice and warm, here in BC. :)
Originally posted on Artsy Wanderer:
Brown Betty is a traditional American dessert made from fruit (usually apple) and sweetened bread crumbs. It is similar to a cobbler or apple crisp, and the fruit is baked. It is an old dessert, first mentioned in print in 1864. Apple Brown Betty was one of the favorite desserts of Ronald and Nancy Reagan in the White House. They served Apple Brown Betty at my elementary school cafeteria and I loved it. They served real food back in the sixties and seventies!
Recipe for Apple Brown Betty from Pioneer Woman here!
This eBook is definitely Mr. Cheddar approved too! ;)
Have a fabulous weekend!!!
