Don't Bite Off Too Much

This is tough.  It always is.  I haven't settled on a resolution I can keep for the coming year.  Time's running out on 2011, and I suspect you're having the same problem.  Here's what I've got at the top of a long list.

I'm thinking of trying vegetarianism.  But if I were to go for it, it would have to be all out; which is to say whole hog.  No animal products whatsoever, neither of the land or the water, would find their way onto the menu.  It would be a bear trying to decide what to pair with the vegetables, grains, nuts or fruits at every meal.

Of course, holidays would be easy.  They could all be celebrated like the 4th of July, with good old American hot dogs.  No meat in those, that's for sure.  As for the rest of the year, there are such venerable animal free standbys as Vienna sausages, Spam, and potted meat.  But I just don't know if I can come up with a sufficient variety of recipes to cover the entire calendar.  I'm still doing the research.  Times like these are when I miss Julia Child the most.

Well, that's where I am right now.  Good luck with your resolutions.  And, oh yeah, Happy New Year!
