If you're a Yankee, you may never have heard of "meat and three" meals. Popular in the south (U.S.) and in Australia, they are exactly what they say they are: some kind of meat with three side dishes, usually vegetables. Should you be traveling and need to find a meat-and-three diner, this website would be helpful.
We had our own version last night for dinner.
The meat was more of a condiment, however, as I just added some bits of country ham (maybe four ounces) to the pot of green beans, potatoes and onions. Fresh corn and red-cabbage/carrot slaw were the other two sides. Delish! (Not, however, terribly filling: Three hours later I was nibbling a piece of cheese.)
I picked more than a dozen ears of corn and froze all but three of them. I'm making a black bean-and-corn salad for dinner today, along with gazpacho and taboulleh – a summertime soup-and-salad meal. I hope the additional protein in the beans will keep me feeling full throughout the evening.
I think the only way I could be a good vegetarian would be to eat all day long. Not only do I really like meat, it really does satisfy. Eating all day long wouldn't be very good for weight control, unless I were eating, oh, tomatoes all day long.
Not likely. Sometimes I think I need an appetite transplant. Do they have those yet? Is anyone working on that?
