Mmm, cream!

I wish I had given more thought to doing it right when I went through my misbegotten vegetarian phase in my teens. In fact, I knew quite a lot of 19-year-old cheese-and-cream vegetarians.

A trip abroad to a country that regards vegetarianism nearly the same way it does homosexuality brought meat back into my diet, but we still cook mostly chicken, turkey, and fish at home. My husband doesn't seem to digest red meat well (and so doesn't like it) so it's a special treat I'll order for myself when we go out.

Someday I'll pull out my old copy of the original Vegetarian Epicure. It's a meat-free, saturated fat-laden retro beauty.
