Happy Birthday Dad! I’ll call you soon… Here are some of my dad’s recipes:
He also sent me these 2 recipes recently to try (haven’t gotten around to them yet):
He and my siblings picked the watercress at my [great] aunt’s house. I get my watercress in Chinatown. Small differences between living in rural New Jersey and Manhattan.
Onto today’s post… I’m not a vegetarian, but I enjoy experimenting with vegetarian food. There are many potential benefits to limiting meat in your diet, and the ones I care about are…
- not killing animals cruelly (if you don’t eat them at all, you don’t have to worry about finding “organic” or “free-range” meat)
- avoiding weird additives that are in non-organic meat (antibiotics, etc…)
- smaller carbon footprint
- it’s cheaper!
- decreased risk of food poisoning
- improved “regularity”
My brother and sister are both vegetarians and this weekend my brother came up for a night, so we were more veggieful than usual. Last night we went back to Sacred Chow down by NYU for dinner. I got the Tapa Salad again (with curry dressing), but this time with curried broccoli (source). I had some camera difficulties so the broccoli picture is not mine.
Rob and Bobby both got heroes – Rob got the Orange Barbecued Seitan Hero and Bobby got the Grilled Western Tofu Hero. Both came with coleslaw made of carrots… which was really boring. The sandwiches were both great though; I had a bite of each.
After dinner Rob and I got The Lite Choice (like Tasti D-lite, but better). Missy is the one who first introduced me to TLC! I won one of her giveaways and now I’m hooked. I got this, but Bobby stole some (“this is my last bite, I swear” – such a lie!). It was a dulche de leche and brownies swirl.
Do you like froyo?
