I'm glad that you are feeling better and finding your way.
What did you eat for Thanksgiving? I had the most delicious Indian dish - and was almost sick as my family ate Turkey. I do cook meat for the family sometimes, but in small quantities - I refuse to cook meat that looks like the animal. Ha ha.
Texas is certainly interesting, but Austin is such a fun city! I'm trying to see all the states while I'm here. My hubby will get transferred to Europe next year.
How is your tummy? I started as a vegetarian, but then turned to a vegan diet when I started college. So my introduction wasn't so instant!
