It is, however, an issue that some people who just avoid red meat call themselves veggie when they are nothing of the sort. I'm sick of people offering me chicken or fish when I say I'm vegetarian. Its not hard to understand, but the waters are getting muddied.
Meat eaters are very welcome to enjoy and discuss vegetarian food. Some cruelty free food is actually rather nice !
In honor of the Oscar show last night, I'll quote an Abraham Lincoln episode from TOS "The Savage Curtain"
"But why should I object to that term, sir? You see, in our century we've learned not to fear words.
"May we together become greater than the sum of both of us.

Well, mushrooms maybe... but I draw the line at toe jam...
Seriously, I keep seeing portabello mushrooms substituted for hamburger meat in the "hamburger'. Has anyone had both experiences to compare the two? To be honest, I haven't had the courage to try it yet, although I love mushrooms. I love to marinate "baby bellas". Of course, share your favorite recipes!
