My husband and I have the same discussion every few months. We’ve already cut our meat intake but get bored with only veggies and lack of recipes ideas. Ultimately, it leads to more take out. We decide we should eat fish more often. Like a lot more fish–at least twice a week. I come home with some black bass to broil or pan fry or maybe some scallops to sear. Sometimes there’s some dine out sushi thrown in there. We eat, admire how tasty the meal was, then go back to our normal habits of low meat, lots of veggies and grains and take out. Three months later, repeat.
With my sister in law’s wedding last weekend and our cousin staying until Monday, we didn’t have that much food in the house. On Monday afternoon I caught the Union Square Greenmarket at its tail end but wasn’t sure what protein we were having that night. So I bypassed most of the market (except for snagging some of the last raspberries and blackberries of the season=JAM!) and headed to whole foods. Now there are some times I’m extremely disappointed by Whole Foods’ “local” selection and other times I’m pleasantly surprised. Thank goodness, this time it was the latter.
