Jason is going to be doing some guest blogging this week. At some point in Hawaii, I bet him that he could not go one week without eating meat. It actually started out as one month, but somehow turned into a week. Now, to me, going a week without meat is easy, but I guess to someone who eats meat on a regular basis, it’s not.
Jason is definitely a meat eater. But…he’s not one of those guys that has to have meat and potatoes for every meal. While I don’t think he’d order a tofu dish or veggie burger from a restaurant, he has no problem eating those things at home when I make them. So, he has a distinct advantage in this bet. He likes vegetarian food.
So from today until next Monday, Jason is going to eat vegetarian and will be blogging about it (I always knew he secretly wanted to be a blogger). Do you think he can do it? If you eat meat, could you go without for a week? A month?
The stakes on this bet aren’t that high. A month of lawn mowing in on the line. Fortunately, for the loser, we only really mow our grass once a month!
I made dinner tonight, so that was an easy meal for him. We had Spaghetti Salad.
I followed the recipe except that I used half the cheese. It just seemed like it called for too much cheese. Some of the reviewers said that they used feta instead of cheddar which I think might taste better (but we didn’t have any). I think the salad was supposed to chill and let the flavors meld but I was in a hurry (aka hungry), so I didn’t do that. If I made this again, I would probably use a smaller noodle. The vegetables and pasta seemed to separate.
So, per the norm, I went to the gym tonight and looked in my workout bag and was missing something. A bra. I don’t know how I always manage to forget something. I mean, I need shorts, a shirt, shoes, a bra and socks. Why is that so hard for me to remember? I went to the gym anyway in my normal bra. Not really very comfortable and to top it off, my ipod was dead. I managed to do a 30 minute interval workout anyway. I did 2 minutes at 3.5mph and 1 minute 7.0mph. I figured there was no way that I could run 30 minutes on the treadmill sans music.
