I'm intrigued by the idea of tricking your dinner guests, as suggested by this announcement of the next Is My Blog Burning? The theme is "Trick someone into eating a vegan meal." I might have found my moment to wade into the food-blogging event culture. Hope I'm up to the task. In the meantime, get a load of this description from the above-linked site:
For many people the word vegan conjures up negative images. Sandal-wearing, pale-skinned, tofu-eating, knit your own meusli, animal liberation activist, retarded, scabies-infested, hippy trustafarian are adjectives that might come to mind. But it really doesn't have to be that way. Please, let's all give the Vegans a break.Incidentally, "knit your own muesli" would seem to be a phrase British people use to mock the sort of folks I would describe as crunchy-granola. I have no idea, though, what it means to knit cereal.
