Hey beautiful people
I know I've been gone. I've been too busy to really consider many of the things I discuss here.

I'm so happy. Lamictal saved my life. For the first time in, oh, 8 years, I feel...sane. Normal. I'm not being dragged around by my emotions. My entire identity revolved around my emotions and mood swings. So much of it was tied to my bipolar. Now that it's taken care of, I don't know what to do with myself or who the hell I am. I'll write more about that later.

I want some vegetarian recipes. I'm not sure I'm actually going totally veggie, but definitely cutting down on meat. And also, how do you people eat vegetables? I grew up in a meat and potatoes family. No idea how to eat veggies except in salad, and that can get boring unless it's spiced up. Help!

PS-I've been having trouble with spam commenters. I might have to add the word verification on here, even though it's a pain. Sorry. I'm just tired of deleting the spam.

oh, good!

also, regarding vegetables, at this time of year i highly recommend soups. they generally require patience and the ability to chop things up, but often not a lot more. plus - warm!

if it were summer i'd say, find a farmer's market. if your produce is fresh and awesome, it's hardly necessary to do anything cool with it - maybe a little frying up to pull out the flavors.

anyhow, i've also got a number of veggie recipes in my "foodie friday" posts. i'm really intending to get back to that more, too. oddly, i don't really know any good veggie cookbooks.
