So, I've been doing good with trying to transition...but not really. I did, however, cook a lasagna that used the protein crumbles instead of actual ground meat. I have also been aiming for meatless choices when I buy food. I discovered Healthy Choice Steamers, which have quite a selection of mushroom based meals. I have also eaten many beef meals. In fact, last night I had a wonderful steak with a couple friends and had a delicious slow-cooked pot roast tonight. One good thing about the pot roast that my roommate cooked is that I have kinda figured out not only how to reproduce it, but how to make it with meat and meatless for me. I am going to put just a small amount of roast in the slow cooker and add lots of vegetables. That way, Marc will be satisfied and I can eat meatless. I know, I know, that's definitely not "kosher" vegetarian, but for a couple, it might have to do. Btw, my roommates loved the lasagna, and they didn't freak out when I told them what the meat actually was.
I can't honestly say that I am feeling better already. To be frank, I feel just the same. I am starting to stress out a tad. In two weeks, I'll be moving northward a couple hours. My life is about to get pretty hectic. Band camp will begin for me August 6, and classes start August 15.
I am getting excited about my hobby. I have a "book" on this website called Wattpad. I entered it into their annual writing contest. As of right now, I am #411 out of over 37 thousand entries. My "book" is #93 in the romance category, and I am not listed as an "undiscovered" author. If anyone would ever like to read it, let me know.
So, here's a small discussion. My roommate has a dehydrator. My discussion question was a random thought after I saw it. Is there a recipe for veggie jerky? I absolutely love beef jerky, especially the teriyaki flavored, and would love a recipe for teriyaki veggie jerky. I would also be nice if I could find a tasty low sodium way to make it. I guess I could always google it, but I think it would be more fun to create the recipe.
Well, that's it for now. Thanks to whoever reads this!
