Despite being vegetarian, I don’t like vegetables…well not all of them, I can’t just eat vegetables and enjoy them, they have to be disguised!
I was a right pain in the ass when I was a kid (and still am!), I would only eat potatoes and peas, didn’t really like meat that much either. We always had ‘high tea’ which involved all sorts of salad stuff, so while everyone else had a plate piled high with lettuce and tomato, on mine was usually a slice of ham and some cheese, I’m surprised I didn’t waste away, actually if you see photos of me as a kid, I was very skinny.
Eventually I started eating carrots and cabbage, but only with gravy and potatoes. It wasn’t until I was in my 20’s that a girlfriend made me eat salad, I wasn’t that impressed, but found I did like sweetcorn and coleslaw!
Well now everything is about to change, I am going to try and be a ‘proper’ vegetarian, I’ve ordered a recipe book and on the next grocery order there will be a feast of veggies, including peppers, aubergines, courgettes, lettuce and tomatoes. I obviously know how to cook, but up until a few years ago, it was always meat dishes, they’re easy, I’ve never quite made the transition to cooking vegetarian. I’m actually quite excited by the prospect, who said you can’t teach an old dog new tricks!!
