tofu time

Sorry if you've come across my blog while it's being revamped. The construction work is pretty much done and hopefully my new, clean, streamlined layout will give me the clarity of mind I'm always wishing I had. Well, it's a start . . .

So the fam (down to husband, me and Wee One at home) is talking big about going vegetarian. Mostly it's husband and Wee One doing the talking. We don't eat much meat in the first place and many of our meals are already vegetarian. But I find it funny when they say they'll start, "as soon as this Canadian bacon's gone" or "when I'm done with the package of beef jerky" or some such thing. I don't know if they have it in them when faced with temptation.

I was vegetarian for a couple of years in my late teens. Then I met my husband and even as in love as he was, pastaroni and canned pears weren't going to cut it (I was yet to discover my inner gourmet). Needless to say it's difficult to cook meals that would satisfy both.

But the talk has been going on for some time now and Wee One really wants to do it. Even if it means giving up her shrimp-flavored cup-o-noodles (sometimes the inner gourmet takes a break). Lettuce see what happens : )

P.S. Pop over to my friend Megan's relaunching of her fun and informative blog Orange Peanut. You might just see someone you know . . .

Good Luck to you n' yours! I have toyed with this idea, then discovered, I am allergic to soy.

I know a lot of people, gradually wean themselves off. One meal a day with meat, then phase it out.

I like your new look!

Oooh, you guys should do it! It's not so bad! :) One nice thing is that if you replace the chicken stock with vegetable stock, you can make tons of things vegetarian!

Anyway, good luck! Love you guys!

Goood luck to you. I am an unashamed omnivore. I eat meat sparingly, but I eat it. Chicken, fish, and the occation steak.
