favorite fridays.


vegetarian spaghetti with meatless meat.

i am a vegetarian, and have been for nearly three years. that is not to say that i don’t miss meat. in fact, my daily menu consists of some sort of a meat substitute, generally at supper time. whether it is a veggie burger, veggie hotdog, or veggie ground beef, i try to incorporate at least one of these miracle products into my meals!! delicious, quick, and safer than real meat, i thought that i would share my vegetarian spaghetti recipe with you this week (and perhaps convert at least one of you into a once-a-week-vegetarian).


you will need:

1 box of spaghetti (whole wheat is best)

1 package of vegetarian ground beef

olive oil

vegetables of choice (i used a green pepper, tomato, zucchini, and parsley)

salt + pepper

tomato sauce (optional)

cheese (optional)

in a large sauce pan begin to boil the spaghetti. remember that whole wheat noodles take additional time.

meanwhile chop the vegetables and combine them into a large frying pan. cook over medium heat. add salt and pepper.

when vegetables begin to brown, add the veggie ground beef. continue to cook for a few minutes. (if you wish to have tomato sauce, add it now).

once ready, remove spaghetti from heat. drain and set aside. remove veggie mixture from heat. combine the two, add cheese, parsley, and voila!


i know that you will enjoy this savory and satisfying meal! that’s a hello scarlett promise. :-)

p.s. do you like my vegetable winky face?

  • Man, did Remy and I have a standoff this morning. All because she didn’t want to wear socks with her boots. She threw a massive tantrum, and I yelled at her. Afterwards, we went for our walk and everything was back to normal. That is, aside from her puffy eyes and tear-stained face. My poor girl. Parenting can be so hard sometimes. Thank goodness for children being so resilient. 
That disaster behind me is nearly gone. We’re currently installing the last of our kitchen shelves, and our new sink arrived this morning. I’m excited to have a less cluttered spare room!
Have a wonderful week, everyone. This room has not yet been touched by us. It is our master bedroom. Everything about it (aside from our furniture) is exactly the same as when we purchased our home. I think that if we do list in the near future, it will be the only room in our house that we did not renovate. Part of me wants to stay just to finish it. A small part.
