I went an entire week without eating meat. It’s not like I set out to become a vegetarian, I watched Food Inc and I can’t shake the images and information from my head. I’m not sure I’ll never eat meat again but I’ve certainly never gone an entire week without it, and right now it’s just too fresh on my mind, so I guess you can call me a “temporary vegetarian.”
I got my lazy bum out of bed last Saturday morning and went to Pepper Place to enjoy the market. This is my new thing because weekend mornings are sacred around here. It’s a virtual contest to see who finally relents and gets up first. Our kids sleep late, therefor we sleep late. As it turns out, there’s a whole world of Saturday morning happenings! We had fun at the market, we got there around 10am, which is early for us. We bought some incredible fontina cheese, so creamy and delicious. I wanted to buy some fresh eggs and spinach, but a bead of sweat broke out on my upper lip and sent me screaming to my car. I don’t do extreme heat. I guess if I really want to do it right, we’d have to get there before 10am, but that’s not likely.
