Someone asked me the other day what I plan to do for Memorial Day, since I’m a vegetarian and all. It’s a valid question. Being a holiday that’s synonymous with barbeque, it’s relevant to question what a veggie chick does for food while her carnivorous friends are downing gobs of animal flesh. (I’m saying that with a bit of sarcasm. I still love you, my meat-eating friends!)
I wish I had some groundbreaking answer, but the truth is, it’s simple. I’ll be enjoying some barbeque, veggie-burger style. Yes, friends, you can put those Boca or MorningStar Farms burgers right there on the grill, next to your friend’s hamburger. (If you’re a more sensitive veggie, make sure to put your burger on foil so it doesn’t touch the meat juice!)
Fortunately, the barbeque we’re going to is at the house of a friend who is also vegetarian, so I will not be short on company!
We’ll also be wrapping up the evening with some cupcakes to celebrate Miss A’s birthday. Her official party isn’t until next weekend, but it’ll be nice…and I know she’ll be excited 🙂
Hope you all have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend! And keep our vets in mind…give them some gratitude, and hold in your heart the families who are missing a loved one who is no longer with them.
