A City Boy Making His Way in the Country

The cookbook challenge…

I’ve decided something big. Something huge. Something that has been both a successful book and major motion picture. I’m going to cook through a cookbook for dinner each night. I know, you’re thinking Julie and Julia. It’s not that.

Dinner is hard to prepare. After working all day, taking care of animals and guests, nobody wants to make a creative dinner. It takes a lot out of you. I could always make my favorite – mac and cheese with tuna – but man cannot live on delicious boxed goods alone. So I thought, why not find a cookbook and make everything inside it. It’s my own recipe planner. My personal nutritionist.

And with summer hitting us in the face, why not use a vegetarian cookbook?! The farmers market, and my garden, can hand me the bounty of the season. Cucumbers are in abundance. And can’t I loose weight while I eat them? To be honest though, tonight we had pizza. The healthy starts tomorrow.

Join us on our own personal journey though “Almost Vegetarian.” It promises to be a bumpy ride. And I’ll be sure to tell you about the time I looked into the heart of an artichoke. (If they’re in season.) It’s the least I can do.
