Meat Free Mondays - 7 Recipes for the Week Ahead (11 January 2016)

Extended to 24 January 2016 (after a quiet week)
We're back to our normal routine here now. Christmas seems like so long ago. We lost a few things in the last week. I lost a key, Cooper had a haircut  (so he lost hair) and I lost 4lbs in weight. Yes, I'm trying to cut down with the help of a fitbit. A good start!

Now to plan the week. Here are seven of the most amazing veggie and vegan recipes for us to trythis week and a few bonus recipes too. My featured photo this week is a gorgeous close-up of a twirl of spaghetti from Johanna over at Green Gourmet Giraffe.
