Fall Meals: Spaghetti Squash Cakes & Red Pepper Soup

Meatless Monday? Meatless Tuesday? Make it Meatless Whatever-Day-Of-The-Week-You-Want. Did you know that the meat industry is the most polluting industry out there? I’m not going vegetarian anytime soon, but I think that its good to cut back on meat and have some meatless days thrown in there. Also, eggs are a protein-eous substitute and great on pretty much anything… But these spaghetti squash cakes especially. Enjoy with some red pepper soup and you’ve got yourself a warm and cozy fall meal!

    YUM. For some reason I love eggs more during non-beakfast meals. Maybe I’ll make this for dinner tonight. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
