Day Thirty-Five: Where I Am

So, this might be a bit of a boring post to read, because it's going to be so positive. I think I love cauliflower. I know I had it last night, but I had leftovers and I thought I should go ahead and finish it off before it started to turn. So this time, instead of drowning it in cheese and marinara, I roasted it in the oven with olive oil, salt, and pepper, alongside some white and sweet potatoes. It was a rip-roaring success. I think any vegetable is best roasted this way. For me, a pile of roasted vegetables is enough to constitute a meal. I know, there's no complete protein involved, but I can get protein at the other two meals, right? And which is worse: roast veggies or cake? (I have had cake for dinner. And breakfast. And lunch.)

So, since it was such a simple day, I don't have a ton to say. But I can say that cauliflower is off the list. Actually, since I don't have much to say, let me recap the foods I feel I've fully conquered so far:

1. cauliflower
2. marmalade
3. grapefruit
4. kiwi
5. oranges
6. fried shrimp
7. peach yogurt
8. egg salad
9. potato salad
10. kale
11. beets
12. tofu
13. Irish cream
14. Spam
15. sauerkraut, when it's on Reubens (I had a Reuben for dinner two nights ago, by the way, and the leftovers for lunch the next day. It was awesome.)

So that's where I am. It dismays me a little that there is only one seafood item on that list, but seafood/fish is much harder for me, much more deeply ingrained, than any of the others. And I could probably put tuna salad on the list, but I've only had it once recently. I will have to make sure to have it again soon, and I think I'll prepare it myself, so I have to absorb the full tuna-ness of it.
