When I was 14, I became a vegetarian for the first time. I read all of Adele Davis and Francis Moore Lappe's books. I saw Mollie Katzen on a talk show, talking about her new cookbook and the Moosewood Restaurant that she had helped start in upstate NY. I may have looked it up and it seemed far away and I gave up on ever eating there, but my mom bought me the cookbook and I have made many, many meals from it over the years.
Last year, when I made the decision to stop eating meat again, I revisited those old cookbooks and recipes and I realized that Moosewood Restaurant was not far from my parents' lakehouse. I called Jason at work the minute I realized this and he wanted to plan a fall trip to the lake, but Sandy happened and we never got to go.
