A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel" (Proverbs 12:10).
It has been a while since I ate strictly vegetarian because most of my house is carniverous & I haven't had a lot of time to plan meals. OK, honestly? Planning food bores me to tears but I am going to have to spend some time with Ditz dealing with her preference for no meat because so far we have turned up just one meat alternative we are both prepared to eat ~ & believe me, that will get old fast.
Plus , as I at least knew, we are getting hungry faster without meat bulking us up. The thing is, I know if I spend just a wee bit of time with this I can churn out far yummier meals than the carnivores want. Dearest is strictly a meat & 3 veg man ~ the sort of eating that makes me wish I could live on air. I am going to have to plan...so not my forte!
But seriously, I dumped this out of a can last night!
It looked like dog meat & was slimy to the touch ~ like tofu. This was a nut meat so I was expecting something a bit different. I diced it up & fried it & it was reasonably edible from my point of view ~ but not from Ditz's!
Back to basics, folks! I will buy some tofu because I can hide it in things like spring rolls & chances are Ditz will never know the difference. I will buy raw nuts because I have a really good nut loaf recipe myself & the ingredients for falals. I am recipe hunting on the net...
Ditz is the only one of mine that regularly wants a cooked breakfast ~& I am not talking oats here! This morning she fried up some meat sub with baked beans. That is a substantial meal by anyone's standards but by lunch she was ravenous again & she is a picky eater ~ far pickier than I am & I have extremely strong likes & dislikes. She is in the kitchen now experimenting with falals. They taste ok to me...but I've been here before. They do say hunger is the best condiment!
