We’re having Boca Burgers for dinner tonight. I don’t remember them being too cardboard-y (I tried an experiment in vegetarianism some years ago) but I haven’t eaten one in quite a while. Ryan loves cheeseburgers more than just about every other food, so I expect these will leave something to be desired, but hopefully they’re serviceable. My meat-free burger options are surprisingly limited due to my fungus sensitivity (a lot of the “veggie” burgers contain mushrooms in some form, which I can’t eat)—these are soy protein and I’ve been able to handle them in the past, so they should be okay for me to eat.
The last couple of nights we’ve had pasta for dinner. I’m sort of convinced that the vegetarian aspect of this won’t be incredibly difficult for us; we’re mostly just meat-eaters when we go out, and I rarely prepare meat at home anyway (you’d be amazed at what four years of cooking professionally does to your cooking-at-home mojo). It’s only been a few days, though, so time will tell.
