As I mentioned last night, I made vegan cornbread to go with the promised vegan chili at book club. I am very happy to report that our lovely hostess made good on her word and presented a room full of meat eaters and crazy little me with a pot of meat-and-dairy-free chili:
In fact, all the eats were vegetarian, and several were vegan. I was perfectly contented with my chili, cornbread, and three pieces of summer squash spread with hummus (pictured above). There was also cheese and crackers, a pineapple/cheese dip with pita chips, cookies, and probably other things I am now forgetting.
I appreciate so, so much everyone’s willingness to accommodate me, a newbie to the group. I try very hard not to make a big deal of my eating habits, and I always tell any group that I can bring my own food if necessary. However, that has never been expected by the book-club gals, and I’m pretty overwhelmed by the supportive, considerate responses I’ve received from them.
Anyway, I know this post isn’t laden with great meal ideas or recipes or the like, but I knew my Vegan MoFo readers would appreciate how the book club’s courtesy made me feel. I hope the rest of you are surrounded with supported friends, too.
