The Beakerkin Follies

I want to start this post off by wishing my friend Jams condolences on the loss of his beloved cat Mimi. Mimi was photogenic and made all who viewed her misadventures smile.
I will miss the ever confused cats misadventures.

I want to talk about the changes in my life since I met Sunbeam. Voluntarily I have given up many of the things I enjoy in an effort to get closer to the one I love. M-F
I east almost all fish and vegies unless I luck into a kosher joint. I am able to find a little poultry on weekends and meat even rarer.

I was never big into pork except for an odd sausage or two rarely. I do not miss the shell fish much. I did enjoy a burger every now and then no biggie. So help me I miss the fried chicken. You can look at the blog and see many fried chicken references.

Sadly, I have been living near vegetarian for three months and it is not easy. I love Sunbeam and it is a small price to pay.

In general I view food differently than most. At work it is get it done and go. At home it is a shared family experience. I love to cook and share a meal with loved ones. If I could not share this experience, my life would be as happy. It is part of a family bonding process that I enjoy.

I miss a good chicken or even a bad one with a biscuit. I miss General Tso and the middle eastern kebabs. There isn't a kosher place within walking distance so I do my best. I find my weight dropping, my health getting better, but I am less jovial.

No fried chicken?

I'm so sorry, Beak!

Look at it this way... Your weight dropping means more healthy years with Sunbeam. That should make you more jovial! :)

Pardon me if I'm confused.

Mimi's gone?

I'll have to head over to Jams blog to check this out.

As far as I'm concerned, a meal without meal is not a real meal.

When I was getting those prolotherapy injections for my back trouble, the doc told me point blank that I had to eat a lot protein so as to get the sacroiliac ligament to regenerate.

There are physical complications if one doesn't get enough protein. Pass that into along to vegetarians.

You may not be aware of this but Baptist preachers are known for eating fried chicken. Since almost every male member of my family is a Baptist preacher ( see today's post) I can not fathom a life without fried chicken.
If I were Jewish I would be in big trouble, as I have eaten some very non kosher animals in my time.
Worms, monkeys, macaws, ant eaters...

Well yeah Farmer, if he's going to eat pork and shellfish why worry about kosher?
