No, I’m not quite a vegetarian yet, but my wife and I have definitely been trying to consume in a more sustainable way.
We went to a farmer’s market that turned out to not be too far from our home and bought a whole bunch of local grown food, and we’ve had four vegetarian dinners in a row. Not as tough as I thought it’d be. I’d still be salivating for a steak if I saw one though.
Here’s a vegetarian / zucchini lasagna that I had made.
I also recently bought my first coffee maker through a friend who works at starbucks. I bought it so that I could offer free coffee from time to time for those who share our floor at our apartment. We handed out little promos with our daughter to every door.
Only a few people made it out, but got to talk to some people that I had no idea lived in such proximity to me. I even handed out coffee to our custodian and entrance guard. They were quite surprised. Next time around I think we’ll host an evening mixer floor party.
With the coffee maker I’ve also started making Frappuccino’s when we’ve had guests. Check it out.
Overall the last while has been a beautiful time just living simpler, better, and sharing the beauty of it all with others.
