Favorite meatless recipe to share?

4:25 PM
Company's coming.

Next Friday, the 8th, we have a special dinner guest. I can not serve Father meat, obviously.

I'd like to serve him something that doesn't smell up the house like salmon does...unless, maybe, it's a salmon quiche with a lovely salad?

Or perhaps a pasta dish?

Dear Reader, would you be so kind as to share some of your favorite meatless meal ideas?

We usually like our meatless Mexican dish, always a huge hit and leftovers taste even better. That means you can make it ahead! Ah-Ha! (Easy enchilada bake, best with black beans and garbanzo. http://goeasttheysaid.blogspot.com/2008/05/young-chefs-in-kitchen-again.html

No matter what you serve in the meatless department, surely the priest you are having over will so appreciate a home cooked meal and a special visit with your family. Have fun!

A family favorite is the traditional Tuscan bean soup called Ribollita. It is simple and hearty, but if you've never made it before it might seem like a lot of work.
It's one of those soups that get better after a few days.
It's thick, dreamy and with a little bit of olive oil on top it's the best.

Buon Appetito!
(good luck on finding the right dish to serve.)

It's already Friday, but I'll leave this message anyway; if you're still looking for something to serve, I have a great recipe for veggie lasagna from the Better Homes & Gardens cook book. If you want it, e-mail me at apotter3 AT neb DOT rr DOT com and I'll be glad to get it to you.

I have a page devoted to days of fast and abstinence. Click the tab on my blog labeled Fast Food. Many of our family favorites are there...

Our favorite no-meat Friday dish is New England clam chowder with hot crunchy bread and a salad. The recipe for the soup is in the McCormick and Schmick's (Restaurant) cookbook. Our priest loves it; I just cooked some today with extra to bring to him this Sunday. If you'd like the recipe let me know. Once you get everything cut up it takes very little time to prepare. The bread recipe is from a homemaking magazine I receive.

You are so lucky to have a priest who comes over for dinner. We travel an hour, sometimes more, for the TLM. Our priest is getting so old that now he has to have someone drive out (an hour from church) to pick him up for Mass--he could never make it to our home(I'm an hour the other way).

Thanks everyone! Father came today, Sunday, for lunch.

I do still hope to try all of your recipes and am grateful for your quick and generous help!
