I'm a vegetarian

I'm a vegetarian, originally uploaded by A!ison.

Went out to dinner with two of my favorite guys. We went to this new age-y vegetarian place and let me tell you, it was fantastic! The last half dozen restaurants I've been to with these guys have been vegetarian and I realized this evening how freeing it has been to eat at these places.

I must explain that I am a very picky eater. I do not prefer meat but that doesn't mean I won't choke it down eat it. I actually enjoy an In-N-Out burger! One of the favorite meals I prepare is meatloaf. I like shredded beef tacos. But if I had a choice I would choose all vegetarian. Picking through my food to avoid gristle, veins and fat is exhausting! Eating an all-vegetarian meal is liberating!

So tonight I had this brown rice dish over a bed of greens. You pour this warm blue cheese dressing over the whole thing. OMGosh it was tasty! My cousin had the vegetarian meatloaf made of vegetables, rice and ricotta cheese. Yum! For an appetizer we had black refried bean nachos. I also enjoyed a glass of hibiscus mint iced tea.

Now if I can only convince the meateater I married that vegetarian food is good! I guess I have about as much of a chance as he does convincing me that a rare fillet is a piece of heaven. NOT!
