What's for Dinner?

I don't know. But but due to the food allergies in our house, it won't be chicken. Or turkey.

or salmon.

or whitefish.

or tuna.

or talapia.

or cod.

and sometimes pollock too, so I have stopped taking chances with that.

So, let's see. That leaves uh, beef or pork.

Pork or beef.

There are only so many ways to fix beef or pork.

I'm trying right now to figure out if my oldest is allergic to dairy, she seems to have specific troubles with ice cream.

So now I gotta wonder which is worse. To be allergic to most bird and fish dishes or no more ice cream at the beginning of summer?

But really I feel your pain, we eat chicken ALL THE TIME around here! Who has all the food allergies?

Ugh... Veggies, I didn't see anything about veggies! Or pasta! or venison or lamb or rattlesnake or milk. (Okay, maybe not the rattlesnake, but if you are really desperate, it might be worth a try...)

Broaden your imagination. There's lamb. And venison. And buffalo. Yes, buffalo. A friend of mine said he buys it regularly at Trader Joe's. Tastes wonderful, less fat than beef. Or so he says. And there's even a buffalo farm here in Connecticut.

Oh dear meat-eater...

There are so many wonderful vegetarian things you can eat. I never even knew how much food I was missing out on until I became vegetarian. I guess you are looking for protein substitutes since you are only talking about meat here?

Here are a few suggestions:

What about chickpeas, lentils, black beans ( favorite), couscous, falafel, bulgur wheat, pinto beans, refried beans, kidney beans, tofu (only freshly there anywhere to get freshly made tofu in ohio?), bean curd, soya protein (tastes just like meat), edamame beans (yum), quiche...

So many options! Vegetarian cookbooks have great ideas. We can all do ourselves and the environment a favor by not eating so much meat.

From the department of "just curious". Is there a Biblical basis for being vegetarian? Or, for being 'against' eating meat?

I should've known better than to post about this.

Addie - Paul is the one with the allergies.

Regarding the other options my readers have listed - Yes, how stupid of me not to think of these options. Thank you for solving all of my problems.

As for anonymous' rather fine question about the biblical basis for being vegetarian: before the fall people were meant to be vegetarians. There is mention of it in Genesis. So there might be some validity to the idea that our bodies and our environment were designed to work better if we are vegetarians. But, God also gave his "approval" for eating meat when he identified the clean animals and then again later to Peter (I think) in a dream about being able to eat the unclean animals.

In case anyone is curious, we had eggs.
