MonicaP - Looks delish! I like Gardein products especially their chicken strips. I’ve never tried their fishless filets.

I’m not a 100% plant based eater although I do love vegan and vegetarian foods and try to eat these types of dishes on a regular basis.

Jacqulyn Munns - This looks amazing. I really need to stop looking at food blogs at lunchtime. 🙂

BTW: I may be in love with your stove.

My new house has a very very nice electric stove. Have I said enough. YEAH. I actually offered to leave all of my belongings when we moved from our old house, if I could just take my stove. I don’t think my husband beleived me but I would have.

Rachel - Taco Tuesdays are a favorite night at our house. I’ve been thinking about getting a sombrero for the kids to wear. I really need to switch up the tacos I serve, and the fishless ones sound delicious plus I love cilantro.
