It’s been a while…

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been so long since I posted.  Many crazy things have happened this year, including buying our first house!  The short sale buying process was insane, stressful, nearly heartbreaking, and cost me several bottles of Tums.  But in the end, after a year looking and a three month short sale process, we closed around June, and are incredibly happy in our new home.

We are almost at the two year mark of our diet change.  I still think about eating meat occasionally.  Sometimes when we are going to a restaurant, I think to myself that I will get some chicken or something if I can’t convince myself to like the meager vegetarian option that they offer.  Thus far, the guilt of eating meat has kept me from making such a selection.  I will occasionally order egg drop soup or some other kind of soup that I know is not strictly vegetarian.  I don’t know why that’s better in my mind, but it seems to be.

I still can’t believe how hard it is where I live to go to a restaurant and find a good Vegetarian meal selection.  How I’d love to know that I can sit down and order something fulfilling that I can eat with a knife and a fork.  For the most part, 90% of my options are some kind of sandwich or a salad.  It’s frustrating.

On the brighter side, we’ve been able to find several satisfying and delicious meal options for the holidays, which I will attempt to post shortly.

Happy Holidays!
