However, something always seems to get in my way. Such as this morning. We finally purchased a cast iron skillet last night. (The amount of joy that this purchase fills me with is completely unexplainable, in fact it's kinda stupid how giddy it makes me.)
I decided that the skillet should be properly seasoned with the first meal cooked in it, and what seasons anything better than bacon? As far as I'm concerned, nothing could season a skillet better than a quarter pound of bacon being fried and then eggs fried in the glorious bacon grease.
The meals for the rest of the week are pretty meat light. Pasta Carbonara, a vegetarian night, and homemade pierogis, so I feel less bad about the amount of glorious pork fat that I ate this morning. Plus, we went to an Amish farmer's market today and picked up some high quality, organic cheese and milk. So I can't be that terrible.
But that'a pretty much it in a nutshell. Bacon. Bacon is the reason that I can never be a complete vegetarian, and thus I do what I can as a flexitarian, giving up meat at as many meals as possible.
