Veggie Tales: Month Two

Hello lovely ones!

I am so excited to write this post! The reason being is because when I reached my two-month mark the last time I was on a vegetarian journey, I quit. Here I am now, reaching the same place, still going strong! I am having so much fun and really enjoying myself. I just want to share a few pictures with you all to recap some of the dishes I made over the past month.

Italian Omelet w/Pesto & Veggies
LOL. This was my first omelet ever. It was a semi-fail but it tasted better than it looked.

Italian Baked Potato w/Cheese
The same ingredients used for the omelet above was used here.

Spicy Midwestern Black Bean Soup w/ Tuna Sandwich

Tuscan Tomato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich
For the GC, I used a mixture of cheddar and mozzarella cheeses.

Southwestern Style Veggie Burger

Veggie Stir-Fry w/Noodles and Tilapia
One of my FAVORITES! I used zuchinni, red & yellow bell peppers, broccoli, and asparagus.

Vegetarian Nachos
This was definitely my second favorite of the month! So yummy!

Broccoli & Asparagus Rice Bowl

These are some of the new dishes I tried out and I can honestly say that I enjoyed them all! I'm so excited about future meal ideas! If you have any meals that you think I should try, leave a comment below or e-mail me the recipe, I would love to try it!

The Sounds of my Thoughts

My mind beckons you as my heart palpitates wildly
Just then I feel your lips caress my skin while your fingertips play with my sin
Your intellect intrigues me to tears that you wipe with your fears as I share mine
The moment of bliss arrives and I scream "I love you" in ecstasy only to open my eyes and find
You. Gone.
You're a figment of my imagination, in this life we are just friends
The puzzle pieces that make us who we are won't fit together no matter how forceful the pull
It's for the better because if I gave you what you wanted
In the end resentment would lead to hurt and you broken...
Into shards of glass the colors of rainbows
Looking pretty without but cutting deeply within...
The souls of others spreading the screams of pain to the masses.
If only I could verbalize what I feel inside to undo what has not yet been done
But these are just the sounds of my thoughts.
