If you’ve ever given a party and prepared food just for the vegetarians you’ve invited – you’ve probably found that it was all gone before most of the vegetarians ever got to the table.
Big secret – lots of people who are not totally vegetarian like to eat that way pretty often. So when there’s a choice, they’ll choose vegetarian. I usually make sure to get in line pretty early at most gatherings.
Unless my friend Carolyn is catering – she prepares incredible food – salads, pasta, soups… and has a wonderfully prepared meat on the side to be added. So I don’t have to even consider making a meal of cornbread and cookies – which has happened.
Seems to me the vegetarian food often looks brighter and more beautiful – maybe that’s why folks really go for it. Or they just want to try it – and then go back for seconds. Maybe they understand that veggie food is easier on the planet and doesn’t add to the methane / CO2 load.
Whatever the reason – you’re going to find me near the front of the line.
