Midnight Maniac Meatless Mondays {No.8}

Welcome to Midnight Maniac Meatless Mondays {MMMM}!

MMMM is a weekly carnival dedicated to those interested in improving their personal health and the health of the planet by reducing meat consumption one day a week.  Every Monday you have a chance to feature a link to something meatless. It doesn’t have to be a recipe {although that would be nice}, it can be a picture of a meatless meal you ate that week, an interesting article you read about meat consumption, a post on your blog about going meatless, perhaps a post on someone else’s blog you found helpful {ask permission first!}, anything Meatless Monday appropriate.

Last week was our largest carnival yet!  33 entries!

Thanks to those who keep coming back week after week and welcome to any newcomers.  I appreciate all your tweets, likes, and shares.  And I love seeing the button on your blogs!  Thanks for spreading the word.

With so many entries it’s hard to choose just three to feature, they all look so good!

Here’s some highlights:

Quinoa

Cold Quinoa Salad with Garden Vegetables from Restoring Simplicity

Pumpkin Soufflé

Pumpkin Soufflé from Creating Nirvana

Mushroom Stroganoff

Wild Mushroom Stroganoff from Breastfeeding Moms Unite!

Lentil and Tomato Pasta Sauce

Lentil and Tomato Pasta Sauce from Kari’s Creations

Brussel Sprouts

Wendy’s Crunchy & Creamy Vegetable Balls from Gluten Free A-Z Blog

Told you I couldn’t choose just three!

Let’s see what you’ve got this week.

Here’s how it works.

Choose something meatless you would like to feature for the week.  A Meatless Monday post on your own blog would be ideal.  {Just so you know, your meatless meal doesn’t have to be on a Monday.  That’s just the day I chose to feature them.} Come back to Midnight Maniac every Monday and add your link to the linky box below.  The linky box features thumbnails with your link, so be prepared to add a picture.  Just follow the prompts – it’s easy!

If you’re featuring a post from your own blog help spread the word by linking back to this {http://midnightmaniac.com/post2035} Midnight Maniac Meatless Mondays post.  You can also grab the button below:

      Thanks for coming back, Judy.

      I love pasta salad! Sometimes the simplest dishes are the best, no? Especially when your husband makes them.

      Hope to see you again.

    Hi there, I haven’t done this in a few weeks and I apologize, but I am back now, and excited about the recipe that I have submitted. Every time I have done this I have tried to put your badge in the posts I have submitted, but somehow through WordPress I can’t get it to work. I just get the Flickr logo when I try. Has anyone else had this issue?

      Welcome back, Emily.

      Sorry you are having trouble with my badge. My site is also run on WordPress so I’m unclear as to why it will not work for you. Apparently I am a bad button maker!

      Try this code:

      <a title="Midnight Maniac Meatless Mondays" href="http://www.midnightmaniac.com/tag/midnight-maniac-meatless-mondays/"><img src="http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4111/5037820288_8c6e3c710d_m.jpg&quot; alt="Midnight Maniac Meatless Mondays" width="145" height="240" /></a>

      Copy and paste into the HTML editor of your post.

      I tested it and it does seem to work. On my site anyways. Let me know if you have further trouble. I certainly appreciate you telling me about it.

        Okay, well, that one seemed to work. Not sure what the deal was! Thank you for your help! :)

    P.S. I tried to put your button into my post, but it isn’t showing up. I’m not sure why. I linked to you, but will see if I can get that button into the post.

      Thanks for coming back, Kari.

      It appears a few people are having issues with my button so I have updated the code in hopes of solving this.

      Try to copy and paste the code below into the HTML editor of your post and let me know if you have any more trouble with it. Eventually I’ll get the kinks worked out.
