Taking a Hiatus

It's been a somewhat crazy week. Tonight I went out for sushi with some girlfriends and then went to see Brokeback Mountain. Great sushi -- got a tofu inari, veggie roll, avocado roll, and shitakke mushroom roll, along with a salad and some edamame. And, a very good movie.

So, I haven't been doing much coooking these past few days. I'll be heading back to Detroit to visit my parents this weekend for a much needed hiatus from things. While I'm there, I'm sure I'll get the chance to cook. They're lacto-ovo vegetarians, with heavy emphasis on the lacto-ovo, and they subsist on Taco Bell.

So, I'll bring the digital camera with me and probably whip up a few things while I'm there. Have a great weekend; I'll be back to blogging on Tuesday!!!

Have a nice trip! I can't even imagine having veggie parents, even if they are the fast-food/dairy/egg kind. My parents are pretty much carnivores, not even omnivores. It's painful to cook at their house because I have to scrub everything down. Last time we brought our own pots!

At least your parents are vegetarian. The last time I visited my family, I cooked one night, which turned out okay, and two nights later, my mom cooked for Rosh Hashanah. She cooked a big pot roast, heated up soups from a bottle (chickeny matzoh ball soup) and a box (Pacific Butternut Squash soup which she either cooked wrong or is really meant as a soup base), and threw together a salad. Actually, I did the salad, but ignored the honey almonds she left on the counter. She threw them in and I had to pick around them. When she sees me doing that, I point out that the almonds have honey. She's like, "Oh, sorry."

If it hadn't been for the leftover tofu I brought over and the sweet potato-apple kugel I made, I would have starved. My sister's father-in-law and the FIL's then-fiancee were there, and they made some dessert, but somehow were under the impression that I was leaving the night before, so it had chickens' eggs and/or cows' milk.

My mom is always bugging me to visit, even a month after I've been (and I really hate flying, too). Like, after an ordeal like that, I want to eat with them.

Oh, man, sorry to bitch, but you're lucky they're even ovo-lacto. Most of us veg*ans have omni families and more nightmare stories than you can imagine.
