Guys, this is it.
Today is the day.
Today is the going-all-the-way-dairy-free day.
For the last several weeks, I've tried out some recipes, not used as much milk, as much cheese--basically, we've been nervously dipping our toes in the water, checking it out.
But, today, March the first, is the day that we quit that nonsense and cannonball on in!!
I'm super excited about the switch; I really, wholeheartedly believe that it will be a game changer for us. As I've studied up on it, I've found the health benefits to be amazing and the literature to be absolutely inspiring.
Already, we've found some recipes that we've loved: Ham and Potato Soup with Leeks, for one.
Some recipes that will probably be even better with some modifications: I'm gonna have to put Butternut Mac (As a replacement for Mac and Cheese) pretty firmly in this category.
And some recipes that we will never, ever try again: Creamy Lemon Asparagus Pasta--wow. Matt said whatever we did to that dish caused it to kill flavor. No matter what you added, no matter how much spice, and even with the pretty powerful taste of asparagus, that dish pretty much tasted like straight up wet cardboard. It never developed a flavor at all. Which was sad.
But, I digress.
Wish us luck, and send us your recipes!! (Or jump on the bandwagon with us, and I'd love to hear about it!!)
