It’s one day until the primary here in Florida and three days until my trip to Nashville. Mucho trabajo must get done by the time I head to the airport Thursday, but it will happen.
Anyway, the other day, I was thinking about vegetarianism. Now, I cannot be a vegetarian. I love hamburgers, steak, chicken, ribs, turkey, etc. I tried the week after Thanksgiving to have a week of vegetarianism and I failed miserably. My coworkers insistence on BBQ that week brought me down.
But, as much as I love the above foods, I don’t eat them every day of the week. I like to think I eat a pretty balanced diet that frequently has vegetarian dishes thrown in. Zucchini parmesan and spinach pie are practically comfort foods because my mom makes them all of the time.
So, I wanted to see if I could come up with 30 distinct vegetarian meals (read: Not all pasta dishes), so that I could go a month eating one meal a day that is vegetarian. I’m not starting this now because of the Nashville trip, and I also need to brainstorm a bit.
Help me come up with the rest!
My other ideas so far include a veggie sub, risotto, spinach pie and mac ‘n’ cheese. Anyone out there have some suggestions? I’m thinking something with quinoa perhaps. I’ve never tried using it, and there is a first time for everything. Maybe some more thai dishes.
OK, enough of my random thoughts. Gotta get some work done!
