I feel a little out of place. I love meat. Beef, pork, turkey, chicken, but...it doesnt like me. If I eat red meat, I feel like I have a rock in my stomach for 3-4 days afterwards. Poultry only lasts for a day or two. It is no way to live feeling that awful all the time, so I stopped eating meat last September. I have way less stomach problems now and feel much better. So it is more of a personal health choice than a social statement or anything for me. My husband is a vegetarian 95% of the time now because he eats what I cook. LOL
Those are just my favorites that I make again and again. Even the meat eaters in my family like them, except the tofu. They dont care for tofu. I made most of these before I decided to become vegetarian. I havent made the leap to vegan, but like to eat vegan a few times a week.
My husband loves Big Bang Theory and Star Trek, so the episode of BBT where Sheldon sees a Gorn sitting in his spot made my husband's day. I decided to make a seat topper for his computer chair with that quote and found a pattern for a Gorn from http://black-lupin.deviantart.com/art/19-Mini-Star-Trek-Cross-Stitch-141822942. It was stitched with DMC floss on a scrap piece of linen a friend gave me because she hated the hand dyed colors.
