Insanity, Bread Making & Vegetables

Well, I think I've gone completely insane. Yes, insane. I am sitting here typing a little about my day just so I can share the insanity. Everyone knows its more fun to be crazy in a group than separate.

I'm baking bread. BREAD. That wonderful fluffy yeasty goodness. I talked to a friend on the phone last night and told her I was going to bake bread today she said I was scaring her. Could me baking bread be that scary. Well, here is some more scary things: I've just made more pickled cucumbers, I have dinner plate ready for tomato & mozzarella salad tonight.

OK, here it is I'm trying to go vegetarian. I'm not going to completely give up meat, but in this heat and my plateau in the weight-loss front I've decided to cut it almost out of my diet. A little chicken here and there - some turkey lunch meat every so often. I just don't feel like the heaviness of meat everyday. Basically I think its just too hot to stand over a stove or a grill and cook.

I love to make bread.

I will never ever give up meat. That is just not in me. Would it not be better to give up sugar and flour?

I want your salad tonight.

Here's more insanity - In eating for your blood type I'm suppose to be a vegetarian (I'm an A) my husband (who is an O) is suppose to be Meat & Potatoes.

Its probably all mumbo jumbo, I love meat - but fresh meat not loaded with all these antibiotics & hormones and that stuff is so expensive. My grandparents raised cattle and we always had fresh beef. I miss that. But I kind of feel better when I limit my meat intake.

I'd be happy to share my salad.

Do you have a bread machine? I have one a love it!
I'm like Mindy, I couldn't ever give up meat. I'm too finicky to eat veggies!!

Nope, I went old school and did it by hand. To quote my grandmother "Bread is better when you play with it."

That's not a bad idea. I'm trying to lose weight too, and I have cut back on meat. I won't give it up entirely, but let's just say I won't be having a steak dinner tonight.
