Today was not nearly as productive as I would have liked. I only got half of my to do list for the day done... and none of the big stuff. *sigh* I ended up sleeping for the entire two and a half hours that Ginny napped this morning. I guess I've been pushing it a bit hard.
And so I am copping out. Instead of a 'book' fictional character, I'm going to use a tv/movie fictional character. And really there is only one Q...
But I'm sure if you've never watched any of the newer Star Trek permutations, then you probably don't know who I'm talking about. He is, quite possibly, my favourite Star Trek character of all time. And yes, his name is Q.
As I said, a shit-disturber of the highest order. He would infuriate and confound the straight-laced captains and their crews. But he always managed to get them to think outside the box... to look at a situation in a different way. He's funny, so long as you're not his current target, and, at the same time, empowering.
I need some input. I made a commitment to myself this year that we would eat meat-free at least once a week. So far, it's been pretty simple. Pastas, soups, enchiladas... I can make all of those well, and I'm happy with them.
But I'm bored. And throw in the fact that spring is here... I want something new. Something different.
For those of you who do the meat-free thing more regularly, what other kinds of things do you cook in the warmer months? My Beloved and I aren't big into tofu, we are more like your typical prairie meat and potatoes type of people.
I want something that tastes good, that's satisfying, and that doesn't cost more than meat to make. Any suggestions?
