Vegetarian Week Update

Da suggested I let you know how our Vegetarian week went. VW as I'll refer to it, also coincided with THE Busiest week I've had in ages. Jesse had something 3 of the 5 weekday nights. Of course we had no idea it was going to be like that when we started. I will admit that Friday night found me and the kids at McDonald's. We were in Shibuya, surrounded by delicious food but the kids would have none of it. Anyway, I'll try and remember what we had this week.

Vegetarian Quiche
Bean Burritos
Garlic Butter Noodles
Black Bean Soup
Lentil Soup
Scalloped Potatoes

We also had some fish and scallops because we had them in the freezer. Jesse abstained, but M attacked the salmon as if she hadn't seen meat in a week. Oh right. She hadn't. Our freezer is actually full of meat that Jesse won't eat. The kids and I will have a meatfest one of these nights when Jesse has a dinner meeting.

I haven't tried any of the recipes that you suggested, but I'm looking forward to trying them out. Jesse is serious about being vegetarian. I like seeing the kids expanding their tastes from just quesadillas. They still aren't convinced that mushrooms are divine. I'll keep trying, though.


  1. I have to say that I am proud of Jesse for sticking to the idea of being vegetarian. I am also way proud of you and the girl. Gosh it sounds so hard! I heard on NPR an interview with an environmentalist who said that if you eat meat you're like an SUV if you eat red meat you're like a hummer but if you're vegetarian you're like a prius. Totally added to my guilt trip. I just wish I had more money so I could afford free range meat.

  2. I'm vegetarian by proxy .. I eat a lot of herbivorous animals.
