Meat-Free Meals

One of our goals for this year is to have at least one meat free evening meal per week.  And by meat free I mean fish and chicken too.
For us this is a bit of challenge.
It is not that we don't love to eat vegetables, far from it.  But to be honest we both really enjoy eating meat.  I personally find it much less effort to plan a meat inclusive meal than one without.  In addition we have the added benefit of having sufficient land on which to raise our own livestock for the freezer (which keeps the cost down) and I barter eggs for a locally caught fish.
So for us the challenge is meals that are as easy to plan and prepare and give us the same satisfaction eating them.
We are pretty new to meat free meals so I am sure it will get easier and we will find a greater variety of meals that we enjoy over and above the Stir-Fry's, Curries and Egg based meals that have so far made up the meat free quota for the week.
From here I am sure that it is only a matter of  searching the net and seeing what other suggestions come my way from those who are already pros in this area.

The future freezer fillers

  1. Lovely freezer fillers you have there! We too have our own little herd for future freezer. Pigs and chickens are our only happy meat stock currently. However I am working on the other half to maybe start looking a goats. Milk, cheese and Rogan Josh...mmmmm.


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
Thanks for taking the time to comment
