Due to various health issues and Phill's desire to drop a few pounds, we are going to eat vegetarian for the next month. I'm going to try. I may eat some meat for lunches. I really like meat. It's good.
Going veggie isn't difficult. I've had many friends who are vegetarians, and I would cook for them. I have plenty of recipes.
Last night I used our George Foreman grill for cooking portabello mushroom caps and small spears of asparagus. We ate the mushrooms as burgers with soy provolone cheese.
The asparagus reminded me of my father. When my family visited me in Seattle I lightly steamed some thin asparagus and served them with a soy sauce. Dad really enjoyed that side dish. He made a comment that he never knew asparagus could be so good. He'd always had it overcooked or too big and woody. These memories pop into the forefront of my brain when I least expect it.
So, when you have a steak this month, think of me. I'm going to want one.
