I ate meat two times this weekend!
Saturday, February 1st, 2014, ~6pm:
We went to Ixtapa (one of my favorite restaurants) for dinner. My family always went there when I was younger. Then we moved to Oberlin, so I didn’t get to go for ~7 years. Now that I’m back in Seattle, we probably go once every month or two. It’s probably not as good as I think it is, but the food scores crazy amounts of nostalgia points… and their salsa is legitimately the best salsa I’ve ever tasted. Anyway, I got a hugely massive combination plate consisting of a chile relleno, a shredded chicken flauta, a ground beef burrito, rice, and refried beans. Everything was great.

This was during the Super Bowl (go ‘hawks!). One of my buddies got up at 3am to smoke some pork in his smoker for ~8 hours until it was tender and moist and delicious. He used this to make pulled pork. I had a sandwich and it was really good. I thought about not eating one, but I had been drinkin’ a little bit, and I wanted more in my stomach than just chips and hummus.
So far it seems like when I’m at home, cookin’ for myself, I do a really good job of not eating meat. However, I do a less good job when I go out into the world. I suppose this is something I’ll have to work on.
