Link Love: Vegetarian Ventures

During the month of June, my husband and I decided to experiment with exclusive vegetarian cuisine. Ok, full disclosure, I used pepperonis on pizza once and some chicken broth to cook rice since it was on hand, but other than that, we’re just a few days away from meeting our goal.

5 Kid-Friendly Dinners that Include Vegetables
