That boy is a monster.

I was going to post about our vegetarian meal yesterday.  Since I want to document our month of vegetarianism, I figured it may just easier to post by the week.  Although as I am writing that, I am remember how long it takes to upload pictures on here.  So I'll just play it by ear.  During the week, I typically don't have time to post (with pictures daily), so I'll go ahead and show you what we did last night.  In preparation, we hit up Kroger (unfortunately not Earthfare to save on some funds).  We stocked up on strawberries, blueberries, a fresh pineapple, and apples.  We purchased spinach, sweet potatoes, lots of cheese, and pasta.  We were out of a lot of spices we use regularly, so we had to replinish those as well.  Our tab came out to $140, which I was happy to come in under $150.  Yesterday morning we had basic poached eggs and toast.  That was pre-grocery; we didn't have any fresh fruit or anything to supplement the meal.  Suprisingly, it kept me feeling full for most of the morning.  This morning we had french toast with fresh fruit.  I've been obsessing over my iPhone apps: SparkRecipes and Whole Foods Recipes.  They are really convenient to have on my iPhone because I can just look in my favorites for ingredients when at the grocery store.  The Whole Foods app is nice because it gives the option to add the ingredients on a specific recipe to your "shopping list" within the app.  And as I mentioned yesterday, all the recipes have calorie counts.  Anyway, last night we tried:

Whole Foods' Vegetable Lo Mein

This is what the website showed it to look like:

And this is what we got:


We couldn't find  lo mein noodles at Kroger, so we opted for Thai rice noodles instead.  I think they worked, but they probably aren't meant for sauteing either.  We also added some different veggies and left out the onions and celery (forgot the celery and I don't like onions).  Overall a delicious dish.  The portions are doubled on our plates, so I didn't finish mine.  It'll probably make for a delicious lunch on Monday.  And here's a pic of the work in progress.


I really love cooking with Dustin.  It's nice to have a partner and someone to help everything come together.  I'm so terrible at multitasking when cooking.  I'll keep posted on dishes to follow!

I also wanted to update that KD and I went to the Lady Gaga concert last Tuesday.  Amazing and wonderful.  She is such an amazing performer.  I don't really have GOOD pictures to post.  Our seats were so far away.  But I adore Lady Gaga.  We would totally be friends in real life.  I think we have the same morals and values.  I love how she is utilizing her fame to do great things for the LGBT community. to do the laundry that has been piling up in our room for months!
