Heads: Cornish Chickpea
To make it fair OH did the flipping of the coin so well done CORNISH CHICKPEA.
Please pm me with your address and I'll post it off to you.
Reading other blogs with all the lovely winter meaty recipes got me thinking about why exactly I don't eat meat. I can't call myself vegetarian because I do eat a little fish and I used to eat meat when I was a child but even then I ate just a small amount; the first crispy slice from a beef joint, a slice of chicken breast, a pork sandwich, a crispy bacon butty. When the children were small and we had very little money I ate even less. I would buy some for the family and just have a plate of veggies for myself quickly realising that I didn't miss meat at all. I also think that if you kill a living thing to eat it you shouldn't waste any of it. My Dad used to say that the only bit of a pig which wasn't used was it's grunt which, in my view, is as it should be. I simply can't face some cuts of meat or offal so it's only fair that I don't expect an animal to give up it's life for me. Handbags & purses I buy are never made from leather as there is no need. The alternatives are perfectly acceptable. However, I do wear leather shoes as I believe the leather comes as a by product of the food industry anyway and unsupportive footwear give me pain in my feet. Hypocrytical? Perhaps.... I refuse to condemn anyone for being a carnivore but, equally, I expect people to allow me my own viewpoint. My family understand and make allowances for me but I do find problems with some pubs or restaurants who don't cater with veggie gravy, for example.
How about you? Any more veggies out there? Does anyone else encounter a problem with eating out either in a restaurant or someone else's home?
Thanks, as usual, for popping in to see me x
