Now where's that Scanners threadbomb when I need it...
My wife, sister-in-law and mother-in-law took my wife's aunt to see the sights and sounds of San Francisco yesterday, as she lives in Vietnam and had never been to the US.
Her aunt viewed a lot of things from the car, or would only spend 5-10 minutes outside at each stop due to not being used to the cold.
Those are awesome pictures, Flux.
Well, my vegetarianism is in full swing, and this is what I had for dinner:
It may not look like much, but it was delicious. Tomatoes sauteed in extra virgin olive oil, sprinkled with fresh parmesan cheese, celery salt, oregano, and a dash of pepper, sitting on a bed of green lettuce drizzled in olive oil and sprinkled with parmesan cheese.
The tomatoes were good, though they got softer than I wanted. Next time I'll just have to cut them a might bit thicker.
Looks delicious, J. Allen!
Great. Now I have a craving for a big salad.
^And here I am craving bison.
Great. Now I want a bison burger to go with a salad.
(*Stephen Colbert angry fist shake*)
^I'll probably have salad for dinner. But I wouldn't mind some smoked bison!
Those Tony Little bison burger promotions on home shopping channels almost always make my stomach growl. Bison is so good.
^I've only had bison burger at powwows, so it's been years -- since I was a kid. I had some good jerky awhile back, though.
What is it about bison that makes the taste unique? Versus, say, a hamburger?
^Bison tastes very much like beef -- they are, after all, basically the same animal. It is leaner, however, but not chewy or gamey.
I'm trying to convert you all. You will all fall before me! <cackles>
Now I want a bison burger, too.
Hmm. Maybe I'll check it out. The drive thru at BiSonic?
Wow, J. as a veggie-man. Who knew?!
If you need some recipe ideas--either raw or cooked--lemme know.
If you like to talk to tomatoes
If a squash can make you smile
If you like to waltz with potatoes
Up and down the produce aisle...
Yep, that's J, all right.
Bad vegetarian. Bad! I was vegetarian for awhile, but it was hard with my diabetes, and I was more idealistic then. I still support and understand the lifestyle though, and both my sisters and both nephews are vegan.
Aside from the cheese, that sounds like the worst meal ever.

I'll take all the help I can get!
I had tried once before, some years ago, and managed for a year. This time it's much more important to me. My blood glucose was in the upper 240s four days in a row, and coupled with my blood pressure being high, and the likelihood that I have high cholesterol (can't afford the blood test to know for sure), and I said "that's it, I've had enough."
I know that as a vegetarian, I can at least bring my blood sugar and blood pressure under better control.
"Hey guys, can we get some b to go on this lt?"
Not even kidding. I don't eat lettuce or tomatoes. I think salads are one of the most disgusting things ever.
