So the yoga classes I go to on saturdays have a break in between where we drink homemade chai latte. I was always passing on it, until the teachers who make the chai realized and felt sorry and for the last two times made a whole pot with soymilk so I can partake in the general chai awesomeness. Yay! Sometimes the students bring some cake or something, and it happened that yesterday I brought cookies and another woman brought a (non-vegan) cake. So we were all sitting at the table and I had the soymilk chai pot in front of me, and I was constantly telling people who wanted to fill their glass "it"s the soy chai" and they apologized for the mistake and took the regular pots. Except for a girl, who said something like "oh I also drink soy" so I was like "yay a vegan!", but then she ate the non-vegan cake so she clearly isn't vegan, she just wanted the soy chai. Which is ok because one full pot is too much for me alone anyway, but still, MY soy chai!!!

Last week was somewhat irritating

My coworker made homemade salsa for everyone in my department. But I couldn't have any because it was made with chicken stock. What the hell? gross. I used to eat chicken, never put it in my salsa.

Then my partner's holiday party was on Friday. They have a bunch of vegetarians, and a couple of vegans, so they always accommodate. Last year was this really yummy ravioli. I was looking forward to it! but no. there was ZERO vegan option. In fact, the vegetarian option was shitty too: noodles in butter and salad with no dressing. The dressing had fish (?) and the steamed veggies were made with chicken stock. People were pretty mad.

Although it was hilarious when the staff tried to ask me if I wanted some turkey that was 'vegan'.

Whatevs. I got extra drink tickets by accident. Still was a bummer though.

Holiday parties always suck. At least something funny happened at the one I went to

When I was in Mexico, I had that problem with salsa. Weird.

Great. Another non-vegan thing i have to look out for in something i never thought would have animal products.
I have nightmares about this now. Stuck in a giant grocery store, searching and searching for vegan noodles. As the dream goes on, the non-vegan ingredients get stranger and stranger. Pork, foie gras, coagulated animal digest. I get more and more desperate. All i want is noodles! I lose hope. And then-
i wake up in a world that has vegan pasta! I eat a big bowl of it and rejoice.

Ugh, i have dreams about trying to find food to eat as well...usually at airports or on airplanes. Sometimes in stores. Often at conferences.

One nightmare I have is I get on a trans Atlantic flight and forget to bring anything to eat, drink, read, watch, blanket, jacket, sleeping pills, ANYTHING. I just have to sit there freezing cold, hungry and bored for 12 hours.

It is the most boring and terrifying dream ever. Another equally boring and terrifying dream is the per-curser to this one: I wake up, have 10 minutes to pack for a really long trip or I will miss my flight. No preparation or anything. Then I wake up. Then I go back to sleep and have the dream I mentioned first in this post.

Man. My dreams are boring and lame.

There was a thread for cookbook swapping at some point... I wonder if you could trade it for something else you want with another PPKer.

If they let you (they might not), you'll get the internet price for it, which is probably lower than the what's printed on the book.

I figured something like that which is fine with me. When I used to work at Borders and someone returned something without a receipt, if the store carried it you got store credit for whatever the lowest sale price the store had sold it for was

the chicken in salsa is new to me...gross.

i hate how my food allergies seem to inconvenience some people or they think i am lying...like i am so sorry i am allergic to quinoa & amaranth. i know things are vegan but if i have either of those ingredients i get so horribly ill it's not funny.

Yeah, that's pretty weird. It would also come across as really bizarre to ask someone if there was chicken in their salsa, since I'm pretty sure almost nobody does that here. My family is Mexican-American and I've never heard of that.

The weird thing is in a room of 8 people, 3 of them were like "oh yeah, we ALWAYS put chicken stock in our salsa!" they thought I was weird. My (onmi) partner thought it sounded super gross too.

These people put stock in everything. Potato salad. Bread. Rice. Salad dressing. Good grief. Ever heard of herbs and spices?

My sister is the same way. She says that all the flavor from prepared food comes from animal fat, and that is why vegan food is boring and unflavorful.

Jesus woman. Get some cumin in your life.

Ok, not calling anyone out, but in the Cooking forum, ages ago, we had a discussion on making stock. I remember someone said that they put some bullion/concentrated stock in their own stock to make it more flavorful.

What the huh?

I should put that on a coffee mug and give it to her.

Or maybe I will make a tshirt that says "get some cumin in your life" Hm. I like that. I would wear it!
