RECIPE: 'I made something special for you...'
Does anyone else dread this line? I've found that people who aren't vegetarian really have no idea how to prepare vegetarian foods. Whenever I attend dinners in meat-eating households I make sure to either eat first, or bring my own food. When they say this, I just know I am in for a few polite, gagging bites in order to not appear rude. And let me tell you, it's tough being a vegetarian that doesn't like squash or zucchini! It always seems to be the star of their vegetarian meals.
