Major Freakout



I cannot believe I have missed TWO Stuff Portrait Fridays in a row. I am so sorry Kristine, I will try not to let it happen again. But I have been SO BUSY! After we got back from our Memorial weekend adventure, my grandparents came to visit for a few days. And my house was a wreck so I got busy cleaning. When they are here I basically have to take off work to entertain them, which is bad right now because I still have those four great big papers due this week. My grandparents left Saturday morning and I had to make a special salad for a MOPS picnic, which turned out to be pretty boring because none of my friends showed up. Then Mike decided yesterday would be a good day to set up our fishtank again, and that was almost an all day family project. In fairness I had mentioned I would like to set it up again, but yesterday was not the best choice of days. Because my grandparents kind of left our house a mess again and today Mike's friend is coming to stay with us for business. So more cleaning. Which barely leaves me enough time to procrastinate writing my papers by sitting here writing this blog. After Mike's friend leaves my best friend and her boyfriend are coming to stay for a couple days. Yikes! I hope she doesn't expect to eat at my house because she is vegan and I am really bad at figuring out what to buy for her. Plus I've been to the foodstore about six times in the past four days. Twice with a toddler throwing a tantrum the entire time because I would not buy him another balloon. Oh yeah, and other news is coming soon...if you email me I'll tell ya what it is.

As far as your vegan friend goes, my personal take is that you should cook as you normally would. If she wants special food then she can a) buy and cook it in your kitchen (and clean up her own mess), b) go out to a restraunt, or c) eat what she can from your table.

If this sounds callous, it isn't meant to be. She knows you are not a vegan and as a friend should not expect you to reorganize your life around her choices.

How's one to email you when there's no email on your page! Hopefully you'll announce this news to the masses soon!

I respectfully disagree with odd mix. If she is a good friend, and you know she's a vegan, I would try to make at least one or two substantial dishes that she will be able to eat. You don't have to cater exclusively to her, but many people are vegans for religious/ethical reasons, and part of being a gracious hostess means that you should try at least a little to accommodate her.

Put it this way, if she were diabetic or had a severe allergy to a certain group of foods, would you make something you knew she could eat/enjoy? Probably so. So I would say do the same thing.

Portobello mushrooms, brushed with olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper, then grilled, are YUMMY and perfectly appropriate...

Just a thought.
