so after spending 9 hours on what in theory was a 5 & 1/2-hour amtrak ride, I have arrived, safely back home here in carbsville. I'd forgotten that my parents' idea of healthy eating basically means no meat. Today i consumed a chocolate donut, 1/3rd of a pantelleone (sp?), 2 cups of cocoa, various bites of popcorn and potato chips, and countless pieces of toast. While I am a big toast fan, I'm not sure I can eschew less healthy options and survive on it alone for the next 6 days. I've scoured the kitchen, and there's not a vegetable in sight <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> Also, i never realized how much I could long for my brita water jug in the fridge at home - the water here is questionable, and there's nothing else to drink besides diet ginger ale. Hence the 2 cups of cocoa, which I didn't really want, but drank out of extreme thirst. After dinner I asked if anyone would mind me scrambling a couple of the eggs in the fridge for breakfast tomorrow, and my stepfather said, "Why? are you going on one of those low-carb diets?"<br>
If only I had a car...I could make a break for the grocery store...

oh no <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> sounds like a house of junk. and reminds me quite a bit of my IL's home, though theirs also has lots of pork products and a couple of vegetables.<br><br>
is there any way you can get to a local market without a car?

Oy, they sound like my parents. The only time mine eat veggies is when I am there visiting and insist on cooking dinner, mainly for self preservation. Christmas should be interesting this year since I am not really eating meat other than fish lately. My dad already informed me he is making meatballs (well, we are Italian after all) and Italian roast beef for Christmas. I guess I can suck it up for a day or two but I GOTTA have my steamed broccoli and eggplant!!!!

insisting on cooking dinner is a great idea. next year I'll arrive with some snap peas in tow. should make for some weird packing, but it'd be worth it.
