Urgh, just had a first-the FB friend who posts about incisors being developed for a reason, that we're not solely grain eaters and she's not becoming a vegetarian, no way. Granted we have completely different styles of eating and we've understood before that she can't really do vegan well because of her allergies (ALL grain, apparently) but that post was just hurtful.

I've had 'grain free' periods, in fact, I'm not sure I ate any grains for the first 3 months of being vegan. I think it can be mentally difficult for people though when you have lots of restrictions due to allergies and then restrict further.

had to go to lunch with the people at work today because I didnt have any food with me (and because the other option is staying in, and its dark and not nice there and I already sit there for 9 hours anyway) and they decided it would be a burger store. When I said I doubt they d have anything vegan they said "sure, they got salads!"
they actually had a tofu burger which they thought to be vegan. it was okay. but then this 18 year old guy from work starts talking about how vegans cant get enought protein (REALLY?... jeez...) cause tofu has no protein and all. I said "my pack of tofu has 30-40 grams, so..." or something along those lines.

And they keep joking about the horse meat thing. SO. MUCH. :(

Yes! Oh, and Vinci, cream would be better. Usually I prefer ice cream, but if none's to be had, a bit of milk can be nice.

Custard would he delightful!

Also, agreed on Oreos. I think the way they soak up milk and the texture if milk soaked cookie and super sweet filling is delightful. Basically I want to lie around all day and eat desserts.

Custard and oreos. Now there's an idea.

Seriously...... can vegan oreos be here already?

I joined MyFitnessPal recently and sometimes look at the forums. Of course people say all sorts of stupid shiitake about vegan diets (you can't get enough protein, we have incisors for a reason, veganism is a scam diet to get your money etc) but my FAVORITE stupid thing that I've seen over and over is "Don't go vegan, it's hard to get enough calories!" Really? Then why are so many vegans joining up to lose weight?

Edited to add: This suddenly reminds me of the time my boyfriend's dad offered to buy us food for dinner and got like 4 lbs of tomatoes and nothing else.

One of the local towns near us is looking to legalize backyard chickens. And a few people I know are excited and have ordered chicks. It is making me sad. I speak up very gently and try and get heard but everyone seems really excited at this cute idea of having cute chickens in their backyards. And if it were just sweet black and white chickens scritching away in their backyards, it would be awesome but there is so much cruelty involved. http://www.upc-online.org/backyard/back ... ultry.html

I love chickens. They are so sweet and surprisingly affectionate.

Ugh, I feel like telling people that chicks get put in a box and sent in the mail is a pretty big turnoff.

That reminds me of when in elementary school we had eggs in an incubator and some hatched, and there were a few chicks in that white styrofoam box thingy. We had them for a bit then they had to get shipped back. I was so upset cause someone came in the class to take them and they put the lid on the box and turned off the light in it, I started crying cause the chicks were alone in the dark.

Awwww :(

We had chicks too but they came from a very tiny local farm. The family raised sheep and chickens, I think for the eggs. I never thought to ask what he did with the chickens that didn't lay anymore, and the sheep were sheared for wool, but I remember the father, I think after his wife died, wanted to start slaughtering the sheep but the whole town protested because it would be noisy and distressing. Hell he came in our class once and sheared a sheep and I thought THAT was kinda traumatic.

Most people I know who tried to raise chicks even in my hometown (which is a tiny rural place) didn't stick with it. More work and effort than they realized was needed, so they'd eat them and never replace them.

A little bit of milk (or cream or custard--that sounds really good!) I can get behind. It's like eating cake with ice cream. What I'm talking about is when people pour enough milk into the bowl so that the cake is basically submerged in it. (And then, if you're so inclined, mash it up and make "cake soup"....). It's the grossest looking thing ever!

Cream or (Bird's!) custard is all right and proper with cake! Milk, though? MILK?!?! That's all wrong.

There was a food porn from a (UK?) PPKer who made cake milkshakes, and they looked quite decadent and yummy... I could go for a cake shake with a shot of Kahlua right about now....

Yeah, I don't know if I could get down with cake soup. Cake milkshake sounds good though! I've never really done milk on cake, but I was having a mug brownie last night and I was tempted to put a little milk in there. Really it's the milk on apple pie (or a dumplin'!) that I like.

Sometimes if I'm eating a piece of cake/pie, or ice cream, in a bowl, I pour some coffee over it. Just a little bit, not enough to make it soupy. . . basically the same idea as dunking cookies or muffins or whatever into coffee. Now I really want to try this with milk.

I don't think you're overreacting. I have a few friends who post that kind of stuff so I've gotten used to just ignoring it, but...yeah, I feel ya! <3

The stupid forking Wendy's ad for the "Baconator" and - wait for it - "SON of Baconator" that aired not once, not twice, but three times while I was puttering around the kitchen waiting for the damn weather report to tell me how much crummy snow/slush I'll be commuting in today. This might be funny if it was a Simpsons reference, but since it actually exists it's just gross. And am I the only one who sees a certain, um, cognitive dissonance in the implication that "Baconator" is capable of reproduction?

There's actually a dessert that's ice cream with coffee (well, espresso) poured over it - affogato! It's usually a full shot of espresso, though, so probably a bit more than you're pouring over.

oreos dunked in milk is the best thing ever. In fact, any biscuit dunked in milk (or tea) is awesome. Except when you buy cheapo shiitake digestives and you dunk quick but they still fall into your tea. Then at the end you get a gobful of biscuit crumbs that you forgot about.

Also, my favourite pregan thing was putting a load of maltesers into a cup of tea then when you get to the end you have a big blob of melty malty chocolate. I miss maltesers!
