    I thought I'd try a meatless meal once a week, although since we have a milk allergy in the house it would most likely be a vegan recipe. I have a ton of them and use them willy nilly but I've never tried assigning one day per week to eat this way...which would require better planning, which I guess is a secondary goal.

    Great idea! I love killing two birds with one stone. Although, probably not the best expression when discussing meatless meals.
