Yours For Good Fermentables.com begins a new feature today:
It's Meatless Thursday, as inspired by the first official Veggiedag (Meatless Day) in Ghent, Belgium.
As reported by the BBC, Tom Balthazar [mayor of Ghent, Belgium] has officially declared Thursday meatless in his city of nearly a quarter million people. In an effort to make the connection between meat consumption and greenhouse gases (18 percent of which come from livestock production), Balthazar has asked his fellow civil servants to abstain from meat every Thursday.

She recently began a Meatless Monday column.
For the Veggiedag Thursdays to come, I'll be posting recipes, tales of my attempts at cooking, food news (meatless, of course), puzzled enquiries from meat-eaters, photos, and more.
Keeping with the 'good fermentables' aspect, I'll often inveigle beer or wine (or spirits) into the posts.
