Do come to dinner :)

It’s always interesting when men write about becoming vegetarian/vegan, because it is really a soft soppy girly thing to do. Real men eat meat not quiche. At one point I was following a blog by a man who was going … Continue reading

Right, said Fred, these vegetarians have to go

Roughseas, If I may. There are a growing number of vegetarians among Jewish people, especially in Israel. In Genesis, God originally gave a vegetarian diet, but modified it to allow for changing world conditions. I was vegetarian for many years … Continue reading

Real men eat quiche ?

There is something intrinsically annoying about people’s assumptions about why people choose a vegetarian diet. Back in the UK, whenever Partner said he was vegetarian, the guaranteed question was, ‘Is that because your wife is?’ as though he didn’t have … Continue reading

Some Saturday thoughts on blogging

Another gem from WordPress. If you write a long post, you need to tag it as a long post. Not with the obvious word ‘long’ of course. You now have to tag your post using WPLongform. What is a long … Continue reading

You are what you eat (2)

And now it’s donkey burgers. Seriously people. Wake up. I can’t be bothered to say any more. You want to condone vicious animal cruelty and slaughter for a few bucks and a cheaper meal, go ahead. You want to eat … Continue reading

You are what you eat

A short and pithy post. Honestly! Would you believe that from me? Horse meat in lasagna. I confess, I couldn’t resist writing about it. I see four issues here: 1) Hypocrisy. OK to eat cows, pigs, sheep, but not horses … Continue reading

Entertaining

In terms of being the perfect hostess you can put me right at the bottom of the list. Not the bottom of ten or a hundred, but at least a thousand, or ten thousand. I hate the staged spectacle of … Continue reading

Men who can cook

And those who can – and don’t. Or to put it another way: Men who can cook, do. Men who can cook, don’t. As for men who can’t cook, they don’t either. Fortunately. With apologies to George Bernard Shaw (Man … Continue reading

Irrelevant rants

Gah!! What is it with people who are not vegetarian and think they know everything about it because they only eat chicken or fish a few days a week? I’ve been doing this for 25 years or something like that. … Continue reading

Cheese

Or, more specifically, Farmhouse Cheshire Cheese. As well as slicing up lots of dead pigs every week, the other major food item my parents sold on their market stall was cheese. Now for some reason, the tradition in my part … Continue reading

Bacon

I can never understand what it is about bacon. It is the one thing that vegetarians are always asked – ‘Don’t you miss bacon?’ And as for Americans, they seem to be obsessed with the stuff. People on forums declare … Continue reading

I need protein – just can’t get enough.

No, no – not more protein – yet again? I thought high protein low carb diets went out – well, 30 years ago. That’s the last time I heard of anyone following one. A friend at university aged, 19/20, decided … Continue reading

Catering for all tastes

Having a party? Entertaining at work? Does vegetarian food even cross your mind? It should do because nine times out of ten, the vegetarian food always seems to disappear the fastest. I say this as someone who has gone to … Continue reading

Quorn

Fake meat? Processed food? Junk food? High protein meat-free ready meal? Fresh from the laboratory? All of those, and more. Or as the website says, a wonder food. Well, not quite, in my opinion. What is Quorn? It’s made from … Continue reading

Let them eat cupcakes*

Am I really the only person in the world who does not have a sweet tooth? If I read one more boring blog post about delicious ‘cupcakes’ I will throw myself out of the window. OK, I won’t read the … Continue reading

Consumerism (7) – it doesn’t matter to me

The much-heralded post and the final one in the series. Perhaps the most important one too. Oh. Why? Because it is the one where you can make a difference. I was going to insert a terribly clever digression here to … Continue reading

Happy World Sleep Day

Honestly I despair. I have read on a couple of blogs that it is World Cancer Day so I looked it up. Apparently 4 February is World Cancer Day as designated by the World Health Organisation (WHO). So what’s with … Continue reading
