I consider myself an enthusiastic omnivore and yet I haven’t been in a meat-eating mood for most of the last two months. And if I haven’t been in a meat-eating mood, I emphatically haven’t been in a meat-preparing mood. I’m not sure why this is, exactly. It’s not that I’m turned off to meat – or any meat in particular. I just don’t feel like it.
There are, of course, exceptions. Last night’s stew, for example, or the tacos al pastor on Taco Tuesday. I almost always have meat when we go out – mostly because I feel like I need to have protein, and non-meat options are often heavy pastas, which I enjoy but know I shouldn’t eat.
Long story short, we were going to have pork chops and roasted parsnips tonight, but I had zero interest in either. Shane had a late lunch, and so wasn’t particularly hungry until later, when I did. not. want. anything. in. the. house. but was getting increasingly hungry. He suggested Subway, so we split a $5 footlong, which absolutely hit the spot. Sometimes it’s nice to just not have to make a choice, you know?
