Going Veggie: Confession–I Cheated #30DaysofGOOD (or Not)

Okay, so if you follow my twitter, among my randomness, you would have seen this tweet:

If you look at this image closely, you would have seen that Chef John Rivera Sedlar created this menu for the Los Angeles Magazine’s 50th anniversary party to which my lovely friend Katie invited me.

While on one hand I have to admit I feel a little ashamed; on the other hand, I have to say – “How could I not?”

They were appetizer samples and I tried:

  • Cobb Salad (a blended gazpacho style shot glass or 2)
  • Duck Prosciutto (imagine a little duck kissing a piece of melon)
  • Pastrami Tacos (flecks of pastrami and Mexican food flavors in a mini green taco shell)
  • Chocolate Bacon Truffles (yes, it is as good as it sounds)

And at the end of the day, what does this cheating tell me?  It was good to have a taste of the above, but I actually am really liking my vegetarian diet and wasn’t tempted in the least to just quit this whole thing.

So…maybe on the bright side, it wasn’t so much a “Going Veggie” stumble as it was a “tasteful reflection”…

Oh heck – who am I kidding – I cheated, okay?
