When I met my boyfriend about 1.5 years ago, I was Vegan. Had been for almost 10 years. Well I went stupid in love and fell off of the wagon, and gradually started eating meat again. It was crazy that I did this, my friends were all shocked because that was a part of who I was and had such strong beliefs about factory farming, and I felt like a traitor...still do. Well I have come back from the dark side and have eschewed meat for a few months. Boy it feels great. It feels normal to me, like I'm myself again. Anyway, the boyfriends parents know I have gone back to a vegetarian diet. For football Saturday, his dad made chicken and ground turkey chili. I do not expect them to provide a veg meal for me, so I ran to the grocery and got a few things and threw together a big pot of black bean and tomato tortilla soup at their house to share. His mom kept saying, "just pick out the chicken." She was in there while I cooked, and when I said, "I don't know how this is gonna turn out." (It was delicious.), she said, "it isn't gonna be as good as this chili, I'll tell u that." Well, damn. Was she insulted? Id hate for her to think me rude. I thought I was doing the right thing. ?????
