There are many different buzz words that explain this phenomenon: flexitarian, semi-vegetarian, and week day vegetarian; where you only eat meat on the week-ends. But anyway you want to say it, you are cutting back on the meat you eat. Some do it for health reasons, animal rights, the environment or all of the above!

Chocolate Syrup

* 1 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
* 2 cups sugar (can use 1/2 dark brown sugar and 1/2 granulated sugar)
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1 cup cold water
* 1 tablespoon vanilla

Combine cocoa and sugar and blend until all lumps of cocoa are gone. Add water and salt and mix well. Cook over medium heat, bringing it to a boil. Keep boiling until thick, stirring to keep from overflowing. Remove from heat and let cool. When cool, add vanilla. This is great for chocolate milk, hot cocoa, and ice cream topping.

Note: This is NOT fudge sauce. It is fat-free syrup and will not be as thick as fudge.

Hot Fudge Sauce

1 c. white sugar
2 tbsp. flour
1/3 c. cocoa
2 tbsp. butter
1 c. milk

Mix together in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil until sauce thickens. (Hot fudge sauce will continue to thicken as it cools.)
