Irresistable B****, Let's Go. Where We Goin'?

20,000 points to anyone who knows where that line is from!
I went to Marlin, TX last weekend for a family reunion on my husband's mother's side of the family. This quote about Marlin from Wikipedia did me in: "At the census in 2000, Marlin had a population of 6,628, a increase of 242 more people from 1990, when the census said Marlin had a population of 6,386. Things went downhill from there." It was relaxing and country. Got crunk in several games of Spade. Ate some fries. Drank a Pibb. Watched people of all ages sing hymnals and later do the Stanky Leg.
At a gas station on the way...what in the Soylent Green hell is "Potted Meat Food Product"? Reason #4869 I do not eat meat, right here.
Monday I started my workout plan, it was a pretty good beginner work-out, but I've had a cold or cold-like symptoms all week so I haven't been back yet. It's on next week though! I have stuck to my no soda during the week rule though, so big ups to me. I've been cooking. Last night I cooked this tasty morsel (I hate you, QQ) for your delight:

Linguine with broccoli, diced tomatoes, diced red and green bell peppers; lemon-herb tofu pan-fried (got the recipe from here) and some bread for nomming purposes. The bread was mid-nom when this picture was taken, my bad.

7 jewels of thought:

BCU: YAAASSSS, you are so BAWSE for that! What destroyed me though, is the fact that we passed that sign in the picture. We HAD to stop and take a pic! I've been sick all week and I blame Marlin. You're vegetarian, right? Where do you get your recipes?

Awwww, I hope you feel better. Yes, Marlin made you sick. Being in that small city...where people can easily pass on germs...yes, Marlin made you sick *smile.*

Yes ma'am I am a veggie eatin', anti-PETA person (they scare me), tree-lovin' chick . I go to either vegetariantimes.com or foodnetwork.com.

I've always been of the opinion that all potted meat is basically lips and assholes or other such parts of the pig that you won't necessarily find in a grocery store.
