As I dined in the kitchen today, attempting to fulfill my "more vegetables" resolution in one sitting, thoughtfully munching on my alfalfa sprout, lettuce, and radish salad, I couldn't help but feel like I was sprouting rabbit ears.
I like vegetables a lot, but I never thought of them as constituting a complete meal. Bring on the grilled chicken. Bring on the pan-seared steak. Bring on the tuna swimming in mayo. Something I can sink my teeth into! But there I was, filling up on leafy greens, and feeling somberly, soberly, but self-righteously healthy.
The salad wasn't half bad, actually, though it really could have used some ranch dressing.
Remind me again why I have 8 heads of lettuce in my refrigerator.
Oh yes. It's January. I do this every January.
What are your resolutions for this year?
