Meatless Monday with Mindy

Meatless Monday with Mindy will be delayed,   I have found a link site to let others add their URL for their blogs to share with us Meatless Meals, but be patient as I figure out how to make this all work.  I will post pics and recipes so stay tuned.

So, each week I'll be sharing a recipe that I have made or want to make (I'll let you know which). When I get smart, and I warn you this may take a while, I hope to use a link-type program where you …
