This week’s Dark Days meal was a fun challenge for me: vegetarian. As a bona fide meat lover, I rarely eat purely veggie meals (although I do love most vegetarian and vegan food). (oh who am I kidding? I love all food! Except goat cheese.).
My step kids are in town for Thanksgiving. That means two things. 1: the decibel level in our house increases three-fold. 2: we have buy 5x more groceries than usual. I always struggle with that last one. Not living with teenagers full time, I just never get used to how much they eat! But this visit I was ready. We had a 7-pound turkey breast in the freezer which I thought would be perfect for lunches. And I remembered to take it out of the freezer in time! (A huge accomplishment for me.)
