The season of Lent & Going vegetarian

With the start of the Lenten season, I decided that we would go vegetarian for the duration. With these noble intentions in mind, while planning a few meals ahead, I realized that my vegetarian food repertoire was highly lacking. This is something that needs to be rectified if I am to go vegetarian for the month and a half or so. So join me as I try out new recipes and ideas from blogland and other sites. I will post regularly through this time frame. If you've decided to go meatless as well and need a place to start off, here are a few of the vegetarian recipes I've posted before.
