Yum Hey What's for Dinner Mom?: Just Another Meatless Monday


Just Another Meatless Monday

Hey What's For Dinner

Well, it's been quite a week around our house. Our oldest son is now back home with us after spending a week in the hospital. Our friends and family have been wonderful and supportive. We've been considering ourselves love bombed by our community. The other side of this is that I have not had to cook dinner in a week. It's been wonderful to not have to think about food at all, just reheat and eat really. I thought perhaps I could share some of my favorite fall recipes instead of an original this week. Hope that works and as always please LEAVE a link. I should be back to cooking this week and I might even have a recipe too!

I love these Caramel Apple Cookies, probably hands down my favorite fall recipe. Tasty and full of caramel they sell really well at bake sales.

Vegetarian Halloweenies, fun, vegetarian and yummy too! A vegetarian version of the bread stick wrapped hot dog mummy.

Falafel, this family loves falafel and I think you will too. It's great baked or fried, plain or in a pita pocket.

 Vanilla Honey Poached Pears are another fall favorite. I love the simplicity of this recipe and how wonderful they look on a plate and read to serve.

What have you been cooking up? I'd live a little inspiration!

  Peace and Love--



  1. Dear Laura,
    I hope all is well with your son. I went through a week with my son hospitalized for a week when he was 8 yrs old... Horrible thing to go through. Rest and be well all of you.

  2. Hi, thanks for hosting! I shared a recipe for Mushroom & Walnut Pate.


  3. Good morning and thanks for hosting!

    Bread machine? Fuggedaboudit! Here's the low-down on making bread machine recipes by hand:


    And in celebration of Pumpkin Week, I'm sharing a pumpkin coconut cake: so moist, so delicious!


    Have a great week!

  4. I'm so glad your son is back home! I'm really glad that you had lots of help and support through a difficult time.

    Those caramel apple cookies look so good! This week I've shared a healthy muffin recipe that doesn't use refined sugar. Thank you for hosting!

  5. Thanks so much for hosting!




  6. I am so glad for you that your son is well enough to be home. My second daughter was rear ended at a stop light by a big truck doing 35. Her big old Mercedes was 2 feet shorter front to back than it had started out, but she came out of it with just an ambulance ride and whiplash. She was able to call us from the ambulance, so I understand your parental fear. I'm so relieved for you. Damn kids! They follow you home and make you want to keep them!

  7. Hope your son is doing ok now!

    Those caramel cookies look delicious. I linked up my post on crock pot sweet potato chili. Thanks for hosting :)

  8. Wow. I'm slow catching up on posts and just went from hearing about Hero's accident to hearing he was home from the hospital. Praying for strength and energy for you and your family and healing for Hero.

    BTW, your caramel apple cookies are drool worthy. I may have to make some of those alongside a batch of pumpkin muffins. I love getting multiple uses out of carving pumpkins!


Am I talking DIRECTLY to you? Well then let me know!
