Monday, Monday….. Won’t Go Away….

Despite my best efforts, Monday has once again managed to find me. *heavy sigh*

Monday, you did it to me again!

Monday, you did it to me again!

Jen fixed us up with a new color for the papasan chair.

What's with all the purple?

What’s with all the purple?

I was upset because I think the flower pillow should be MINE, but when I try to pull it off, Jen says No!  Just wait until she leaves for work pillow, then we can be together.

Jen also cooked this weekend, and boy, were we excited to help! She found this recipe at Sugar Dish Me.

sweet potato burger- it's delicious!

We asked Jen to occasionally write about vegetarian and vegan foods from a non-foodie perspective. Maybe that will encourage others to explore the possibility that not all meals require meat. Look for her first post this week!

About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  1. Apart from Ruby we are all vegetarian – always looking for inspiration! Rumpy you need to assert your authority and get the cat off the purple chair – looks much more comfy than a little pillow 🙂

  2. We think our dogs could happily be fruitarians! Not so much the cats 😉

  4. Yaaay! So glad you like the sweet potato burgers!! Loving that ciabatta bread, too! Your burgers turned out great! I do have some other veggie burger recipes that I use quite often– they aren’t vegan because I almost always include cheese, but they could easily be adapted. My vegan friends used cashew cream instead of the Greek yogurt on these burgers and it worked really well. Happy Monday & have a great week Jen & Rumpy!!

  13. That potato buger looks so yummy! My mom don’t eat meats a lot so this recipe sounds good to her!
    The purple cousion is lovely! and I’m glad to see June Buggie seems to enjoy his nap on the cute chair! 🙂

  14. I do love meat, but we eat mostly chicken and fish, red meat maybe 2x a year…but yesterday at the bbq/concert, I had a garden burger and it was very good! I’ll have one every so often. If we want ground something, I don’t normally buy ground beef, usually ground turkey. Anyway, try to have a good Monday, Rumpy. I’ve had a week off and now have to get back into the work mindset. I’ll try, too, okay? Hope you get cookies today! 🙂

  17. Purple is my favorite color Rumpy! Maybe it will brighten up your Monday? You could come over and nap and play with me and Nalle. Mama works from home because she can’t stand to be without us! Wooooowooooooooo, Ku

  18. I think that pillow should be yours Rumpy, hope you get to play with it when Jen’s gone 🙂

  20. Purple passion … Rumpy is in love with that flower. The sweet potato burger sounds delicious. We try to have some meat-free meals and this might do the trick. 🙂

  21. i agree! for people, meat is not “a necessity.” (tell that to my wife!)
    didja read my “homage to dool”? life is weird with only two dogs! THAT will change in my house!

  22. That IS a nice purple flower pillow, Rumpy. Let us know how that all works out, okay?

    That sweet potato burger sounds kind of tasty!

  23. Monday is going by way too fast for me. I can’t wait to hear about some vegetarian meals! We’ve cut down to fish and cage free chicken as far as meat goes. And we eat bean dishes or tofu dishes on some nights. My husband is Chinese so he really knows how to make those tofu dishes taste delicious. More recipes would be great, though.

  24. It’s a long weekend in Canada so we’re still bumming around. Thanks for the link, those sound yummy and I’ll love to hear about your other Vegetarian recipes

  25. I’m ovo-lacto vegetarian since 29 years and probably the only vegetarian in whole Normandy. This is a region full of lard. My dogs and cats are very tolerant and don’t complain about my food. They get normal cat- and dogfood with lots of meat. The sheep don’t complain about my food either. Another thing I like about my animals, they are never on a fashionable diet.

  26. Wel, I sure hope that the first post is about that sweet potato burger. That looks yummy!

  27. Rumpy you look GREAT with purple!!! And I see your name written ALL OVER that flower pillow…seriously, I can see it right there without even bigfying it! And actually Mom Linda would probably like that orange burger! paw pats, Savannah

  28. We don’t care about Mondays either, Rumpy. And this Monday brought back all our heat and humidity.

  38. thanks for encouraging others to go meatless! it makes me really sad the way farm animals are treated simply to produce.
