I have my own dietary restrictions and they are medically induced rather than morally induced. Even so, I'm planning on staying within my rules - mostly. But not completely. I've never even heard of vegan marshmallows but I'm guessing they are not the same cost as regular ones. If you know you "can't" eat that kind, don't eat it. Or know that it is one day a year and fudging a bit doesn't do anything but foster good will among those that tolerate you.

I don't think there is one single solitary thing on our combined table that is vegan approved. But we are all a bunch of omnivores, so we are all okay with it.

I started this remark the day before Thanksgiving:
I've eaten her candied yams the last three years with a smile and a sincere, "Thank you for thinking of me, it's very sweet of you." That sentence sounds suggestive. I must have a dirty mind.

There are/were plenty of vegetarian options on Thanksgiving.  Mashed potatoes, green beans, bread, my famous deviled eggs... I'm not vegan but I don't know of vegetarian marshmallows, just vegan ones and they aren't expensive.

Update:

No candied yams this year.  :(

We had a great time. Both of our sons went with us. The food and company were great. Everyone had fun and I feel loved more than tolerated. All of those old wounds washed under the bridge. We had a lot of laughs. My husband and his brother drank handcrafted beer and my sister-in-law and I drank wine from local wineries. Thank goodness our sons don't like to drink. Our eldest son drove us home in my old Highlander while Darren and I laughed and talked in the backseat.

The only bad thing was that the drive to my brother-in-law's house took us an hour and forty-five minutes longer than normal because a wildfire shut down the other major roadway North. The highways and freeways were bumper-to-bumper and we averaged 10 to 20 mph for the first half of the drive. We had to stop for two bathroom breaks and wait in unbelievably long lines for the ladies' room. Well, I waited for the Ladies Room, the boys didn't. I enlisted the help of a store clerk at an Albertson's market in Carpenteria to commandeer the Men's Room when I noticed the line for the women's bathroom meandering around the aisle in the supermarket and no men using the Men's Room.

I hope everyone who celebrated had a great day.


Congratulations, Noiz!

Lots of things were vegetarian on our table ... but there was butter in nearly everything and if there wasn't there was cheese! But it was all delicious. At least the things I could let myself eat and still maintain my lifetime goal of having ten toes still attached when I die.

I felt tolerated by some and loved by others, so overall, it was a win.

SC I've been vegan for over 45 years. It would've been longer but parents wouldn't let me until I left home. I was veggie because I worked on a small mixed farm at weekends and discovered cows and pigs were like us: some were curious, others mean, some friendly, others emotional, etc. I read in the library that we don't actually need to eat those friends, so I stopped. When I went vegan my uni doctor said I would be dead in a year, so maybe I persisted to spite him. Outlived him by 30 years so far.

I eat a mainly plant based diet. Mainly. I do eat a little dairy most days, because most vegan yogurt is either soy-based and my body doesn't seem to like soy all that well. There is vegan yogurt that doesn't have any soy in it, but that's so bloody expensive I can't afford to buy that, so dairy yogurt it is. So there's that. And I like fish. And eggs. Haven't eaten eggs in ages, no fish in weeks, but I do ocasionally indulge. I even eat chicken every once in a while.

Would I want to be a vegan, or even just eat a completely plant based diet? I don't know. I guess, if money weren't an issue, I would. The plant based diet, I mean. That still wouldn't make me a vegan, as I would still wear leather.

Bones, a tea please.

I just eat all the foods I like. I hate beans. They taste like dirt in a skin. I would have to really work at being vegan to try to get all the proper proteins my own body doesn't make. And I barely care enough to simply cook foods I like. If you find your diet is what you like, good job y'all.

I am happy with the food I eat. I am not pre diabetic from any of the meat I've eaten, but that sugar or carb based stuff is my enemy. So, that's the stuff I watch now.

BTW, studies have shown that plants have what might be termed "feelings" too.

It hasn't gone yet.  Stop wishing your life away.

"Bones, a pint mug of steaming lemon tea and an all day breakfast."

I've had a bloody awful night with dreams bordering on nightmares.  I really don't want to go back to sleep.

It'll pass, but right now I'm  jumpy as hell.  Rather glad I don't have to socialise in the 'Real World' right now.

We finished up with the decorating yesterday. I've got the repaired Joseph under the tree along with the rest of the nativity scene. In the dark shading, you can't even tell he has been decapitated, more than once. I hope the gorilla glue holds. It was very disconcerting to unwrap a decapitated Joe.

No.  I rarely go there.

These were my own personal corps of demons.  Doubtless delighted to catch me with my guard down for once.
