After a couple of weeks ofÂ humming and haa’ing over whether we should go vegetarian or not, Rob and I decided to take the plunge and go for it. We rarely eat any red meat anyway, so it was really just a matter of cutting out chicken from our diets and the salami sandwiches that Rob has every day for lunch. (Oh, I just realized I haven’t told my Mum about this. Don’t worry Mum, I’ll helpÂ with whatever we end up having forÂ Xmas).
Anyway, Rob celebrated this decision in his usual way -Â by going out and buying something.Â This purchase, however,Â ranks as one ofÂ Rob’s better ones (much higher, in my opinion, thanÂ the variousÂ digital/electronic paraphanelia that finds it’s way into our house).Â Not only are the recipes in ‘The Moosewood Restaurant Simple Suppers’ cook book ones that you actually want to make and eat (a far cry from the bland offeringsÂ from whenÂ I first dabbled with vegetarianism about 15 years ago), but the added bonus is that Rob is actually using the book to cook from!Â When I get home in November I suspect we’ll actually be fighting for kitchen space…spatulas at dawn (as long as it’s not pairing knives)
So, here is another first. I decided, given that I am writing about the book, to put a link to it on this blog. This is another great feature that Rob has been able to install for me. Wow, how lucky am I to be married toÂ a geek that cooks…and he doesn’t look half bad in a pair of cycling shorts either..
