I LOVE my family for being so supportive. For our christmas eve dinner this year(my first one as a vegetarian) my mum actually SUGGESTED having it at a hotel's chinese vegetarian restaurant! And my (meat loving) brother and dad agreed!

So instead of them stuffing themselves with rotting flesh, we had an amazing steamboat buffet. It was so fun because we were just dumping plates of juicy mushrooms and vegetables and noodles and mock meats into the pot and jabbing at the food with chopsticks. And there were eggless cakes and cookies as well as various tim sum and sweet pastries too. mmm.



Much better than me picking at salad leaves and getting nauseated at the sight of my family chewing on dead turkey and minced cow.



best thing of all, they all agreed that the food was tasty! next best thing? after the buffet, my dad suggested getting a carl's jr burger for my brother's supper , but i convinced them to eat some yummy animal-friendly sweet bean fillled pastries instead!



I love christmas this year :]

had your brother not just finished eating at the restaurant with you and your parents? why would he need another supper when he just had one?

He's 14 and a 'growing boy' who has to eat every couple of hours, lest he die of starvation

I know about the brother thing. I grew up with two big brothers who had to eat every few hours just like babies do. It's nice that your family was so thoughtful, and I'm glad your Christmas Eve dinner was such a good one.
