Hi, new to posting

Thought I'd say hi, I've read some of the threads but this is the first time I'm posting. I've decided to sign up because I have a specific question (that I'll post elsewhere) but also just wanted to say hi. It seems like there are a number of professionals here, but I'm not one of them. I live in Northern Virginia (I usually say DC because I'm a couple miles from there so it makes more sense to people), and am a full time student. I am a vegetarian, and cook as much local food as possible.

Welcome Classic.

There are a few of us at least from your area - breezy will probably be along (Culpepper) before long.

We are not vegetarians but often make meals without meat, not for any specific reason.

Jump on in. I learn so much from other's questions and the responses. Sometimes it leads me into thinking about cooking possibilities that had very little to do with the posted question or recipe.

Again, welcome aboard.

Welcome, Classic. I am new to the forum as well, and hope to see you around. Cooking local sounds like fun. I try in the summer, but I wouldn't be eating much in the winter if I couldn't buy from US and other sources.

Hi, Classic. Welcome to DC. Sounds redundant, doesn't it, given where you live. I'm familiar with your area. Buck and I lived in the DC suburban area for 30 years before moving to Kentucky.

We're not vegetarians but, for variety's sake, I plan one meatless meal for every four with a meat/poultry/fish one. It's fun and we enjoy the different non-meat protein dishes we can add to our mealtime repertoire.

Stick around and become part of our big DC family. We're glad you've found us.

Thanks! What a surprise to get so many welcoming comments!

By the way, I noted before that there seemed to be a lot of professional cooks here but that was until I saw "assistant cook" under my name and realized it was the title for people who haven't posted much. Duh!
