I've read with much interest everyone's discussion on eating at relatives.
When I first moved to New Hampshire I was a vegetarian and received much flak
from my husband's mom & dad where we lived for the first 2 months until we
found our own house.
For a while I stopped being a vegetarian, but am now back to it. (Definitely
a sigh of relief) So, I'm not looking forward to Thanksgiving too much with
his relatives. However, I am planning on taking my own stuff. It's just that
I wish everyone would just not get all bend out of shape about the fact that
I'm not going to eat turkey or anything with butter or bacon fat in it.
I understand how all of you feel about not wanting to cause any conflict. It
is a difficult situation for all of us. I'm going to make enough for everyone
to have a taste and try to be as tactful as I can (and not lose my temper).
Maybe we can come up with some tactful comments on why we all have chosen
this way of eating. some that are good for a laugh anyway.
