This week has been stressful, and my enthusiasm for this experiment is waning. I went out for Thai food on Thursday and all of the specials had meat or seafood. I miss seafood. Prawns, muscles, clams, salmon...they're just so good! And healthy! All those Omega-3s.
But for the sake of the experiment, I passed the special paper to the side and looked at the vegetarian section. My dish, the Vegetarian Curry, was undoubtably delicious, but I just miss having options. That's the tough part. I'm tired of immediately negating so many yummy options. I don't even allow my mind wonder nor mentally taste those dishes. They are not choices for me right now.
I went to friend's house last night to unwind after a crazy week of National Boards mania. The wine hit the spot, but I had to pass on the jambalaya she made in her crock pot. The spicy smells of chicken, prawns, tomatoes, onions and rice filled the house. I settled for some salad and chips. I had eaten earlier (more vegetarian pho) so luckily I wasn't actually hungry. But it stinks to be the only person not eating the main dish. Not even just a little bit in order to compliment the chef. I feel like a whinner today. I miss meat. Whaaaaaaaaa!
