its ok its cruelty free

So as a vegetarian I get asked a lot of stupid questions like:
  1. Oh my gosh what do you eat??
  2. But how do you get your protein?
  3. Dont you miss it though?

I understand its not a lifestyle choice everyone is comfortable with but come on kids, what do I eat? All the same shit I ate before minus meat. Its really quite simple I still eat pizza, tacos, soup, sandwiches, casseroles, spaghetti, and cupcakes. Especially cupcakes.
My mom, bless her heart, once offered me a turkey burger because she didn't think that turkey counted as meat. We joke about it all the time at my house :) I love you mom.
I was browsing recipes today on cooks.com and I just typed in vegetarian and hit search. It brought up almost 400 results which I thought was great! Most of them are chilis or lasagnas and I came across a recipe entitled "Ground Turkey Loaf Vegetarian" and it called for a pound of ground turkey! I thought it was hilarious, its not just my mom who thinks turkey doesnt count!!

That is all.
