in reply to Best part of Thanksgiving

Being a vegetarian on Thanksgiving at your relatives house is interesting: (it seems we have it all figured out at my house)

"I'll pass on the stuffing (dressing). It came from inside the bird. Did you by any chance make any one the side? No. I'll just have mashed potatoes."

"You just put turkey gravy on my mashed potatoes. I'll pass that on to someone who isn't vegetarian. Could I have another plate? Thanks."

"Me being vegetarian has noting to do with whether I love you or not, Grandmom."

(To a drunken uncle). "No, ham is definitely meat."

(After having to fight for everything on my plate, and only ending up with greenbeans and carots.)
"You know what? I'll just have water."

Man, I'm glad its over.

    I remember trying to explain to my mom that
    "No, I can't just pick the beef out of the stew..."
    "Yes I still love you and your cooking. No, I don't think your bad for eating meat."
    "No, my son doesn't eat meat iether."

    *laugh* I understand.

    I do not happen to be vegetarian, but we're throwing a "Friend's Thanksgiving" this Saturday, which includes a few carnivores, a few vegetarians, three vegans (no animal products at all for those not sure of the difference), and one hypoglocemic (sp?) with blood-sugar issues. Trying to do a pot luck with all of them was challenging. We ended up with everyone being able to eat at least half of what's to be brought, including 'main-course' type items. Of course, we had to resort to someone bringing a "tofurky", which is a tofu turkey, but what the heck. Got to try new things.

    =Blue might be eaten by a grue...
