Blog Fodder #6

(Banner courtesy of Hootin-Anni)

This weeks topic was brought to us by non other than Kim, over at Kimbofo. All together now, Kim, you rock! What is your most memorable meal? Why?

I actually have two memorable meals, not for the food, but what happened. Kind of 'moment of clarity' meals....

1. My mother served up her delicious roast chicken one day and I looked at the glistening bird and suddenly realised that I couldn't eat it. Not didn't want it, or wanted to be different, but just couldn't bring myself to eat it. And so began 20+yrs of vegetarianism.
On the other side of the coin after being veggie for about 15 years I accidentally ate a mouthful of beef mince and was horrendously sick......

2. I was reasonably new in my office, only been there a couple of weeks, and the fleet manager was keeping a close eye on me (he told me later he fancied me rotten from the day I arrived!) and one day took me out for a quick pub lunch. I chose a cheese and tomato toastie (toasted sandwich) and something to drink, and while he stood at the bar with his back to me ordering I realised I was in love with him.......and so began the love of my life.....MB...........

Nice Fodder, Kim :-)

Awwww. Who thought a cheese and tomato toastie could be so romantic! :-)

It's easy to see why these meals are memorable - just a bit life changing weren't they?!!

Both great stories.

Don't you feel the urge to drop being a veggie when you smell bacon though?
