I was a pescatarian, meaning I only ate fish and seafood and no other meat, for something like six years. Then I briefly ate chicken again, went fully vegetarian and finally settled on pescatarianism again.
But I’ve noticed something. I seem to have lost the taste for seafood. Two of the things that I really missed when I was vegetarian were sushi and mussels. I have had sushi a handful of times since then and it seems like half the time I feel sick in the middle of the night and the other half, I just don’t like it as much.
My friend Jamie and I went to Twains on Thursday night for dinner and I ordered mussels.
Granted, it might not have been the best idea to order mussels from a brewery. But I didn’t think about that and ordered them anyway and they were gross. Now, I know that mussels can be bad and maybe these were, but I’m seeing a pattern here when it comes to eating seafood. I don’t really like it.
Maybe I’m destined to be a vegetarian. Or maybe I should stop trying to label my eating habits.
We’re supposed to get a huge snowstorm here tomorrow night. Huge being 6 inches. Considering the fact that Atlanta pretty much shuts down when we get one inch of snow, it’ll be really interesting to see what happens if we actually get six. Honestly, I’m a bit apprehensive. Not because I’m worried about the actual snow, I like snow, but because if it does snow, Jason will have to go into work and work some crazy amount of hours (he works for the news station) and I worry about him driving and all of that. Plus, I won’t get to see him much. It’s put me in a bad mood all day.
Despite my mood, I decided to risk it and go grocery shopping. Surprisingly, Kroger wasn’t that much of a madhouse. It was busier than a typical Saturday night, but not too bad considering the Snowpocolypse that we’re supposed to be getting. While other people filled their carts with bread and milk, I filled mine with Lee emergency necessities – refried beans, salsa, Vitamin Water Zero, Brussels Sprouts, Broccoli, Veggie Burgers and diet coke for Jason.
When I got home, I realized that I hadn’t planned very well and didn’t really have much to make a proper dinner, so I made a Mexican casserole of sorts.
Cheese, refried beans, corn, salsa, baked chips, avocado and olives. I realize that while this isn’t particularly high in calories, it’s not the most healthy of meals. Where are my vegetables? I should have cooked my emergency brussels sprouts and broccoli to go with it.
