Beef & Chicken Franks in Spicy Tomato Sauce: Jerks & Hot Jerks
Sometimes I fancy myself as an omnivore. But to be honest, not really. I am really a meat lover. I do admire vegetarianism, though. Be it for health reasons, religious reasons, other noble reasons I can't think of, I-wanna-be-cool reasons, I-just-follow-my-bf/bff/boss reasons (i.e. I-have-no-opinion reasons), or I-am-only-vegetarian-on-the-record reasons. HAHA! For what it's worth, it shows self control and I have none :p
I'd like to share a personal vegetarian encounter, though. My friends and I had a super bad experience with one. Someone we knew, who is a hard core vegetarian and a noble religious practisioner (a wannabe?), is super mean to others. We aren't talking about mildly cunning here...but pure evil. Mean, mean, mean. We always wonder if this person has to be mean to human beings to compensate being so nice to animals (by not hurting/eating them)? ^_^
However, no worries. I don't generalize. I believe that it's one isolated case, and there are so many great vegans in this world, despite the jerks....which I found in a Taiwanese snack shop LOL:
...and girls just love bad boys...so, here are the HOT vegetarian jerks, wait until the tops come off ;)
I think enough jerks for today, aye? Let's move on to my love for meat. Most of my dishes contain meat. They are the star, and the fruits and veggies are the supporting actors/actresses. They could do an award winning performance, but I paid the tickets to watch the star. Hehehe.
Here's another favorite hearty dish. Easy, quick, and always satisfying:
Beef & Chicken Franks in Spicy Tomato Sauce
Starring: Nicely Marbled Beef & Sliced Chicken Franks
Supporting Actors: Sliced Tomatoes, Garlic, Shallot, Chilli, Soy Sauce, Sweet Soy Sauce, Pepper, Ketchup, Sambal ABC (ABC Indonesian chilli sauce)

Brown chicken frank slices, set aside. Saute garlic, shallot, chilli in olive oil with a bit of butter, add beef and chicken franks, pour sauces, cook through, garnish with parsley flakes.

PS. If I had to be a vegetarian, I might weigh a gadzillion lbs, as I could see myself compensating the lack of meat with truckloads of carbs ^_^
