I think that's true. The best vegetarian food I've had didn't pretend to be not-vegetarian.

I had Vegetarian breakfast this morning. Focaccia/mozz/tomato/basil sandwich with 20oz latte.

Yummm.

We are going out to a slightly nicer place for dinner with daughter and her BF. It will be our first time meeting him and Heidi tells me he has some anxiety about it. I promised her I will be nice and keep it light. No grilling him about his “intentions” etc., I promised.

Something I think about a lot is the time I attended the Rockford Airshow (RIP).

At the end of the show they actually diverted some car traffic to the other side of the airport to lessen congestion on the small perimeter roads. This took us at one point down the main runway close to the western end.

The KRFD main runway is 10,000' long and 150' wide with very smooth pavement. I saw quite a few high-zoot cars leaving and I couldn't imagine how much they would want to take a big long pull all the way down.

No, that's the drill - 1250 in lbs of torque. The impact driver is considerably smaller and 1600 in lbs of torque.

How could he not have anxiety? Unless he's this guy.

I don't know how Chipotle serves it, but it's pretty common for chorizo to be served in crumble form, not a cased sausage form. If that's the case, I'd assume that the "chorizo" bit comes more from the distinctive spices involved and there's not much more meat mimicking going on than there is with the sofritas.

Apparently I had a brush with greatness on this morning's ride.

Well at least I rode near someone with a Wikipedia page :)

They could've charged extra for run-what-you-brung drag races after the show!

When I was 18 I lived with my 21 year old girlfriend and she wanted me to meet her alcoholic parents. Her dad was actually pretty cool but her mom was an ogre.
She grilled me about her daughter and asked "Shstate yer intentions". She was butt faced drunk. One time she called me a "wet behind the ears punk".

Hope to see you tomorrow.

I'm not usually intrusive, but . . . WHAT? Isn't this her first year of college?

The only thing we really make that’s intended to be “meat like” is bolognese sauce with TVP. Otherwise if it’s a “plant based” meal, it’s all veggies.

Ok to be intrusive. They are both second year students, 20 years old. He seems like a fine young man, and we had a very good time. He even likes Seinfeld!

I think it depends on the person but I expect the typical veg has MORE gas than the non-veg. Speaking from personal experience I am sure I pass more gas now than when I was a carnivore/omnivore. I don’t necessarily see this as a “problem” but I suppose that also depends on the person.

datlas 02-26-22 07:23 AM

I think I am going to try to ride up Mt Wilson later today, but first mrs datlas and I have a destination hike for donuts, then we have to say bye to our friends from SF area who came down to see us for a few days. We are almost halfway through our stay here and it’s been a good mix of seeing our daughter, friends, sights, and cycling.

I think that I've mentioned this before, but I've had a lot of gastro problems since my abdomen was radiated in 2009. I can't imagine what it would be like if I went vegan.

Definitely true. Plants are full of funky sugars and complex carbohydrates, which don't get digested in the small bowel and end up in the colon, which is primarily designed to absorb water. For reasons you might understand but I don't, the colon bugs make make lots gas. Lots of exercise and energy consumption also increase gut motility causing the same thing. Old age also decreases digestive efficiency. I spend most of my evenings in a state of noisy, uncomfortable, and occasionally malodorous, inflation.

I had a GF at age 14.

LSS and I started "going out" at age 20 and we had both had a few previous relationships.

I got married at 20 to my HS sweetheart, over 50 years ago.
