Easter Sunday brunch at a buffet restaurant that my grandparents love. Toast and fruit salad, here I come!

Also I have a feeling that my uncle will give me mild grief for not eating eggs or something.

I think Soyrizo sells out faster with the meat eaters here than the veg folk, because I know meat eaters who recommend the stuff to other meat eaters! People grow up with chorizo, find out how gross it is, still want it and then go for the soyrizo.
We eat it with potatoes in tacos a lot! Chili is also good with the stuff. The boyfriend was hell bent on not eating it for a long time, I made it, he ate it, now he digs on it!

I bought the Tofurky brand chorizo once to take to an omni taco night, kind of out of desperation/short notice. I didn't think anyone would even try it but they all did, they all liked it, and the whole damn package got eaten even though they had two meat filling choices as well. At least I know if I ever describe a meal to these folks they're never going to say "THAT'S NOT FOOOOOOOOOD!"

Last week in a pub and a whole table of blokes who I know but not that well were asking me about protein and without even thinking what I was saying I told them I got it from semen. There was pretty much a stunned silence.

I've been tempted on occasion to simply answer the "where do you get your protein?" question with "I swallow".

Me too. I'm a little worried that Easter brunch at my inlaws will involve me getting drunk by noon because there will not be one single vegan dish on the table, and my father in law will mock me and will grill me the entire time about my eating choices. I'm already on thin ice with them due to a fiasco that happened at Christmas, so I don't want to be rude or impolite, but when you have to sit at a table with people who are eating murdered animals and defend your decision to not partake in that, well, I don't know how long I'll be polite.

I've taken to bringing those packets of Justin's chocolate hazelnut spread to meals like this. Who wants yucky buffet eggs when you could be eating chocolate hazelnut toast?

Can't you bring something (or even several somethings) nice to share? That way if they eat it, fine - and at least you can say you tried - and if they don't, you're still assured of being fed! (Not that "drunk by noon" is necessarily a bad thing, but "drunk by noon with a bellyful of yummy food" is always better!)

my sister in law (the one i really like not the one who is a gun toting republican crazy person) was vegan for 5 years and i swear my MIL at some point said something about how vegans were allowed one (usually dairy/non-meat product) cheat food they still ate. and my SIL's was mayo.

ive often pondered this because it makes almost no sense. it could be my MIL was completely confused/crazy

also if you are going to be vegan with one cheat food why would it be mayo??


I want to know who it is that's doing all this "allowing"! Who wrote that permission slip?

A reaction to everyone who says we need to eat meat, or the paleo nonsense? Also, we can evolve socially/culturally to choose not to eat meat.

I just bought VCTOTW, so I was thinking about making some cupcakes since dessert is all I really care about anyways. Seeing as they already don't like me, I don't want to show up with a whole buffet of food and have them feel like I'm trying to upstage all their cooking, because I know they put a lot of effort into it. And the cupcakes would be a win-win, if people eat them and like them, they can experience for themselves how good vegan baking is, and if they don't, then I get to take all the leftovers home for myself!

That would be lovely if the stuff existed here! I guess I could make my own to bring if I was so inclined but I'm not. I'm a big fan of peanut butter so if they have pb I will live. But really, I can have pb&j at home.

this is probably the one good thing about my mom not realizing she scheduled my baby shower for easter weekend. now i wont be subjected to my 13 year old nephew's really loud opinions on my veganism and other weird things like for example a burrito is not a burrito unless it has meat in it (this is not opinion to him it is a cold hard fact).


so much for teaching kids manners

yay for no easter dinner!
boo for having to survive my baby shower
yay there will be vegan cake!

I had lunch today with a couple friends, one I hadn't seen for a long time. For years she's been a (very shitty) vegetarian. I guess she eats meat now. Because her hair was falling out. And she's telling everyone who'll listen that being vegetarian made her hair fall out and beef fixed it. Blaaaaarrrgghh.

so my friend who is doing the paleo thing just posted a picture of what her fiance made them for dinner.

bacon wrapped meatloaf cups.

im 99.99999% they are doing this for weight loss not because they believe the whole paleo schtick so im not sure how bacon or beef equates to weight loss and im not sure how bacon or beef is actually paleo either.

so as discussed earlier the paleo thing is basically just a reason to eat a lot of meat :-(

I had that nephew. He is now an adult, and I'm sorry to say the situation hasn't been improved by the addition of alcohol. Alas.
