I realize that I do not take pictures from November through... May. Something like that. I should change that. I wonder if it has to do with seasonal Depression stuff or if it just gets busy or cold or... I don't know.
This picture was taken in November some years ago. Mr. Brocccoli Head was a table ornament at the oldest son's birthday dinner. At his request. Lovely and edible. Or something.
Thankful for a bunch of crap. Spent the day with family. Ate far too much good food. Really awsome bread. Shocked my sis-in-law by eating turkey. I do that sometimes (eat turkey, not shock sis-in-law).
I call myself "vegetarian" becuase it is much easier to say than:
I mostly eat a vegetarian diet (mostly for squeamish reasons but also for sustainability reasons and environmental footprint... but mostly for squeamish reasons).
...But I eat fish (ever since living in Japan twenty-some years ago and discovering that I couldn't eat anything in Japan without eating fish; and since I liked fish I decided to continue eating it from time to time but since my spouse does not eat fish I don't often prepar it at home.)
...And sometimes I eat turkey (since pregnancy eleven years ago when I found it difficult or impossible to get the 100 grams of protrein recommended by my midwife on a veggie/fish diet. Because pregnant people aren't supposed to have too much mercury. And I don't eat chicken because I promised a chicken I met in Africa.
I suppose I could just say: I don't eat red meat, pork or chicken. But really it is that I eat veggies, fish and turkey. Which just sounds mad, but there you have it. More than you ever wanted to know about my odd and nonsensical eating habits.
Fairly certain that I migth have taken my meds this day.
