Re: Recipe source

Interesting how many of you don't eat much meat.  You can put me in the 
category of little to no red meat- on rare occassion (like 2 a year) I 
have a craving for an In-N-Out burger.  But that is the extent of the 
red meat for me.  I also don't eat pork (well except for ham), but that 
is because I don't like it (and yes, I've tried is a zillion ways, cause 
everyone else is sure I just haven't had it cooked right -but nope- I 
still think it's yucky).  I do eat chicken and all kinds of seafood.  
Anything that would use ground meat, I use ground chicken.  And someday, 
I don't eat any meat at all.  I, however, would die of starvation on a 
low carb diet- as that is what keeps me going all the time.  Well, carbs 
and chocolate : )  I do eat plenty of fruits and veggies in season too.  
Speaking of which, I need to go pick somemore of my ripe tomatos!
