Although I do eat meat, it is very limited. When I make dinner at home, it's almost exclusively vegetarian and quite simple. I don't like buying meat because it's expensive. And I don't necessarily enjoy cutting up and handling something dead. Dead. It's very easy to forget- thanks to packaging and the help of a butcher. Afterall, it no longer looks like an animal, right? Right? This heap of flesh used to have feathers (or fur/hair) and was once a living, breathing animal. The other reason I don't like to cook meat?
|OMG. Sooooo gross.|
Now presenting: The Red Spot...
Sorry for the poor quality of the picture, but hopefully you get the idea. What is that red thing? Sooooo gross!!! So needless to say, I mutilated the poor chicken breast and cut out every single disgusting, tendon-y thing, red spot, and fat glob. I swear to God that I wasted so much of the chicken. And I feel bad for being wasteful, but I just can't eat it.
But the light at the end of the gross, veiny tunnel? After I cut up the chicken into little pieces and cooked it, it was delicious.
