30 Day Dare, Day 2: Let Them Eat Steak

Today was what we would call a speed bump. Only 2 days in?! But of course. Today I got to experience life as a vegan outside of my home.

We had dinner with the in-laws today and being that I started my challenge just yesterday I neglected to inform them of my spur of the moment new lifestyle. I didn't feel they should have to prepare an entire separate entrée for me when this is MY choice. I figured I'd wing it and nibble on the most obvious vegan pieces of food I could find. Except tonight we had pot roast. And so my friends...I slipped a bit. She separated the potatoes, carrots, onion and celery for me, but the fact remained- they had been cooked in beef broth.

I'm not to bummed about it. At first I was but it quickly went away because well, duh! I hadn't told them! And I still wasn't eating meat. So there was that. I had to confess, it just wouldn't be right otherwise.

But! We still have tons of my lasagna left over from last night to eat and I'll be cooking up my second recipe soon.

Sorry for the rather mundane post. I stayed up waaaay too late last night and have been a little off all day because of it.

Tomorrow is a new day.

Dude, don't sweat it. There will be more meals, and now they know. Sans the haters, dealing with eating out, ESPECIALLY when people cook for you, is one of the most stressful parts of veganism.
