When I read the prompt, I was with foodist Lissa. What was on her mind? Food, of course. You can read her post here. I just parked the car and we were heading to lunch. On the menu was squash soup. It is one of my personal favorites.
My problem with squash is that it has meat in it. It’s traditional. I ate the piece of meat that was in my bowl. It taste great with all the vegetables, the pasta and potatoes, etc. As a new vegetarian, I had to take the day off and enjoy it. It is one of those comfort foods. I do not cook squash soup. One of the dishes I have yet to master. I only eat for holidays or when Mom decides to make some for the family. I do want to try without meat and see how I like it.
After the soup, I had some salad, mac and cheese, rice and beans and some fried pork with pikliz (a kind of hot sauce mix with shredded cabbage, carrots and hot peppers). Again only a couple small pieces of meat. It felt good to mingle around with loved ones. I am back on my no meat land. I feel better without it.
