I will post more than pictures of my food soon. But I am boring and do nothing but cook. This is a piece of salmon glazed in brown sugar and maple syrup with a sweet potato. This is spaghetti with the best meat sauce I have ever made. This is mahi mahi steamed with orange pepper, onion and pineapple. ...

Today I ate meat. And it was delicious. I am usually a pretty easy going person and don't like to make decisions. Meredith asked me last week if I wanted to get lunch this week and I said sure. She sent me a list of places she was thinking of and I said "that one." She said she had a better looking schedule on Tuesday or Thursday. I said "Tuesday." Sometimes a desire to eat good meat after a month of eating a vegetarian diet trumps my wishy washy personality. So we met at Sepia at 11:45 for a somewhat early lunch. But...

On day 29 of a month of vegetarianism this was the first salad I'd had for dinner. I've had a few for lunch, but never as a main dinner entree.

I only have four days left in my month of eating vegetarian. It surprisingly has not been that difficult and I surprisingly have been craving more and more veggies as time is going on. Don't get me wrong, I am looking forward to eating meat on Tuesday and already have lunch plans with Meredith to celebrate. And, well, full disclosure I am eating a piece of mushroom spinach pizza right now...
