The Accidental Vegetarian

I went meatless today due to poor planning. Don't get me wrong, the lunch was tasty and VERY filling. I just felt there was something missing. Here are the animal friendly tid bits:
  • big salad (lettuce, peppers, carrots, cucumbers, garbanzo beans)
  • goat cheese (I actually didn't add it in, but it's the thought that counts, right?)
  • salad dressing
  • cantaloupe balls
  • cranberry oatmeal cookies
No one wants to cook in my household this week. Considering there are only two of us that creates a problem. Last week mi novio made a chili and we didn't work our way through it until 7 days later. Then I made sausage and peppers and we (mostly me) ate it up in just 3 days. Now we are at a deadlock. I don't want to cook because I feel like I was last "It" and he doesn't want to cook because he feels like he made the more abundant (thus, more loving/better/more caring about our "family") meal. Ergo, we starve. That is, we don't have any more meat meals until one of us defrosts something from our frozen graveyard filled with tuna steaks, chicken breasts and ground turkey meat.

I know, I'm in the wrong here and I appreciate the fact that I'm here at home faffing around on my blog while the "His" of my "His and Hers" life is still at work slaving away but (insert annoying whine here) *I don't wanna cook dinner!* I wish I could just open the refrigerator and dinner for the next 4 nights would magically appear. Ok, that was a real wish and I just checked the dice.

Crap! This is supposed to be a lunch blog. Sorry for the distraction folks! Um, well, as I'm sure you've noticed, my lunches are usually heavily based on leftovers so if we don't have any dinner then how can I have a good lunch? So, there's the link. Anywho, I'm off to fight the good fight. Dinner Ahoy!!


  1. You have inspired me, I am in Australia but am going to buy one of your laptop lunch box things. I always go to your blog now to see what you are eating.

  2. Too bad this is only a lunch blog because word around 444 is that you made some for "someone" last night. Cheers! Keep up the good work on the blog. Very proud of you. I never thought a packed lunch could be so funny.
