Can You Help Me Give Up Meat for Lent?

Good Questions

Q: I am thinking about giving up meat for Lent. But I do not know much about cooking vegetarian meals. I don't want to confine myself to eating only salads and soups.

I am looking for simple, delicious meals that won't take forever to make. I'm into comfort food, Southern food, Italian food, and Mexican food.
