I'm so behind on posting wonderful vegan food. I've both cooked it, and eaten some in restaurants.
But first I'd like to ask you something: Does your family eat and enjoy the food you contribute to typical pot luck opportunities, like the Christmas dinner just past?
Or do you feel like some family members won't even give your offerings a fair shot, because they know they're vegan and assume they won't like it.
It's on my mind because yesterday I came home with half a cake and half a shepherd's pie, and I feel a bit like the hours I spent lovingly preparing them were kind of a waste. Which I know is totally immature. But still, I'm wondering if next time I should just pick up a meal for myself at Whole Foods and give in to the other-ness.
I'll be back this week with the photos and feedback on the recipes I cooked. But what is a blog if not the place to share what's on my mind? And it's on my mind: Do you feel rejected if people won't try your vegan cooking?
