No food to blog about tonight, since we ate a very late lunch. At work we had Izzo's fabulous burritos catered in, but they were all pre-wrapped, and they all had beef or chicken in them. Doh! So I called Brad, and on his way home from class, he swung by Izzo's, got us a couple vegan burritos, and we ate lunch together at my office at 2:00. What a sweetie!
Tonight we are taking the kids to see LSU Theater's production of High School Musical. Should be fun! Brad is dreading it, but the kids and I are looking forward to it. I'll admit, I hated the movie the first time I watched it with the kids, but it has totally grown on me, and I love the songs now.
To keep the Vegan MOFO theme going, though, I wanted to share some of the stranger comments I've received since going vegan.
"What are you...a PETA freak?"
- bank teller
"Shame on you!"
- my boss (I KNOW!)
"You can still eat chicken/fish/pork/seafood, right?"
- many, many, many people
"Wow, you're the first actual vegetarian I've met in real life!"
- a colleague
"I've heard of vegetarian before. What does it mean?"
- grocery store cashier
"SOY milk?? What's a soy?"
- woman at the grocery store
"What kind of foods does a veejun eat?"
- various people
"You don't eat meat or dairy? What DO you eat?"
- even more people
Hey, at least people are becoming somewhat informed from my answers, right? I'll admit to having some of the same attitudes about it in the past, so I can't really judge. Turnabout is fair play, right?
More veejun food to come later this weekend! ; )
