I made massive amounts of food for a party my boyfriend threw, and almost none of it got eaten. I mean, I figured people would mostly be eating the huge hunks of meat available, but all of my lovely sides (potato salad, quinoa salad, panzanella) were shunned in favor of mac and cheese and bacony potato casserole. Le sigh. People did like the dip I made though. I did not tell anyone that it had nooch in it, so that probably helped.

On the yogurt tip, I am annoyed that So Delicious doesn't make big tubs on the greek almond yogurt. I go through that stuff with terrifying speed, and I hate all the plastic packaging I leave in my wake.

^ I bought some of that today! I really like it.

And actually, the WholeSoy shortage led to me meeting a delightful vegan woman in the yogurt section and discussing our other options. It was pretty awesome, because where I live I never just randomly meet other vegans out in the wild.

I bought some Almond Dream yogurt today at Earth Fare....hope it's good because I got 5. LOL It was priced pretty good...$1.59 each. Better than $1.99 for the So Delicious almond or coconut.

But I really hate spending 4 of my Weight Watchers points on 6 oz of yogurt when I can get a whole cup of unsweetened plain for 2 and put my own Stevia in it with fruit.

Remember the duck thing I posted about in this thread? Well I found out last night that my boyfriend's sister and BIL got rid of their puppy a few months ago because they "couldn't take care of it anymore." Today they're giving their two-year-old a new puppy for her birthday. They're not going to get it spayed so they can have more puppies later. what the fizzle.

I am basically waiting for this exact scenario to happen in my family (well not the ducks, the dogs).

I think it might be one subpart of an ongoing wager with my husband, and so far I am batting 100.

Our HFS got those in once and I was so excited to try it...They were over $3 each! I know that cannot be the case everywhere.

They definitely weren't that much at WF when I got them, but they may have been on sale. I think 2/$2? I don't know, but it's ruined me for other yogurts because now I expect yogurt to have 7 grams of protein, ha! I will buy and delight in Whole Soy lemon again for sure though, regardless of protein.

We went to a family dinner last night, and my father-in-law made the caesar salad vegan for us (pet awesome not peeve!) But husband's aunt asked us what's in normal caesar that we wouldn't eat, so we list off anchovies, egg, etc. I KNOW that she knows what vegan means, because I'm sure we've had the conversation a billion times. She can be argumentative in general, and I think maybe she was just bored? Anyway, she's like "You don't eat anchovies?" I tell her we don't eat animals, just to keep it simple. "But anchovies, that's fish!" Most confusing thing ever, so I just say "Fish are animals," and she looks like she's having to think really hard, then says "Well okay."

In an attempt to look as sad as possible about my lunch, I'm bringing half frozen soup with the knowledge that there may not be a microwave available. That'll teach 'em to not provide lunch for me. Or something.

veg restaurants that don't have any sharp knives. I encounter this all the time, I can only assume they think we don't need them because all plant food is soft and can be cut with a butter knife, but that is really not the case.

Ha, that's totally true. I recently found myself trying to cut through a whole roasted grilled leek with a crepe knife and I ended up throwing my fork at my husband accidentally.

That's a little harsh and a revolting visual.

@MBM: They're still expensive here, but not $3 each.

@NDP: Most soy yogurt has about that much protein.

Thanks, jordanpattern! I was looking at Almond Dream, and it only had 1g!

I've been my own vegan pet peeve lately. Veg-curious people have been asking me, "So, what do you eat?" And my response is mostly, "Um, I don't know. Food?" I wish I had a better answer, but I'm depressed and don't like to cook for myself, so I eat a lot of sandwiches, frozen dinners, cereal, etc. I did make mention of Appetite for Reduction. I feel like a good vegan ambassador would have a response that just makes people drool thinking of all of the culinary delights they'll get to experience.

Unfortunately, I have experienced many peeves this long, long long week. Including ignorant coworkers and eating nothing but a bag of chips one day.

But the stupidest was a very posh restaurant I had lunch at, that had a farro risotto on the menu labeled as vegan and gluten free.

It had cheese and soy sauce in it. It even said: with Parmesan cheese, right next to the vegan symbol. What the huh? Who made that menu?

I just got it without cheese. But what if i was GF (or anyone else that orders that) and got sick? It was the only gluten free item on the menu too.

Stupid restaurants jumping on the food fad bandwagon without doing any kind of research. Considering my tiny-ass plate of farro and veggies was $30, you would think they would pay a little more attention to details.

The risotto was ok btw. Not great, but ok.


I'm so confused. Isn't farro a type of wheat? How can farro anything be gluten free?

I usually tell people "Fruit, veggies, beans, whole grains, tofu, cupcakes! Everything you eat, but without the animals products.", but somedays what I actually eat are bananas and pb & J's.

Does anyone actually think that much about what they eat? I mean, really. If you go up to any person and ask them what they eat, what would they say? Probably the same thing, "Um, food. I eat food, you weird person asking me what I eat."
