This time of year is, without fail, always when everyone finds out/realizes/remembers I’m a vegetarian. See also: carb-itarian, “bad hunter” and this:
DOWN WITH THE VEGGIES!
These people say all sorts of lovely things to me…
“Enjoy your tofurky, loser!”
“Hope ya like brussell sprouts, freak show!”
“Have a nice break!”
So hurtful. Especially that last one.
A lot of people assume vegetarians on Thanksgiving are either dining like rabbits or eating tofurkey in a commune while wearing a beret and smelling heavily of patchouli.
I don’t even own a beret.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I wanted to share a veggie and non-veggie idea for the upcoming holiday. The non-veggie idea is peace offering. (</3)
Greatist posted this great list earlier in the week to break the tofurkey stereotype. I think it’s helping! (I also think I’m going to gain 400 pounds this year because I am making every single one of these.)
This recipe is from Tone It Up and is really good and creative! The pumpkin makes the chili creamier and the cinnamon at the end (weird, I know) gives the chili some sweet heat. Don’t knock it ’til ya try it. (I tried a turkey-less version last year. It was really good!)
* I made that word up.
See, vegetarians aren’t so bad, now are they? (Except to the poor defenseless veggies.
DIE, VEGGIE, DIE R.I.P.)
What’s your favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner?
CARBS. Those flaky, peel-able biscuit things account for approximately 98% of my Thanksgiving meal.
Do you eat a lot of veggies? Or do you consider corn and tomato sauce your favorite vegetables?
