Traditional Chinese Vegetarian

A traditional style of chinese vegetarian, all in a pot. I like the combination of this dish especially when i use zucchini and summer squash. I cook this quite late in the afternoon cause i've forgotten today is my "jai" day. I've make a wish and decided to go for vegetarian twice a month which is 1st and 15th every month since 2 years back. Actually i have put remarks on my calendar with a big "V" every 1st and 15th of the month. Unfortunately this time i only realize that its my vegetarian day until i took the first bite of the fish burger after we brought it from Checker's drive thru. I've decided to come home and prepare vegetarian and will instead of having vegetarian for one half of a day instead of one day. This i hope can consider the replacement of the bite of non vegetarian i had earlier. I usually will check on the calendar and get prepare on what to cook the night before my vegetarian day. I really salute and admire those who fully go for vegetarian. If the day comes and i go fully vegetarian for long term then i will no need to check on the calendar anymore but i know i'm not ready yet at the moment. I wish i could, one day.
