Yeah, but I'm REALLY tired of cleaning his cage!

Kiddos found said Dove and at the time I figured it must be sick/on death's door to let 2 screaming small kids pick it up so I agreed to putting him in a bird cage in the kitchen. But noooooo... he's apparently destined to live a happy (and very messy) life in my kitchen.

Question for vegans: You eliminate ALL animal products from your life, right? Including leather jackets, leather shoes, etc?

So do you therefore ride using only nylon or synthetic materials in your bridle and saddle?

The thought just occurred to me so I was just curious for your thoughts on that.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

Oh I'm with you on that one - been there done it many times over with pigeons, baby birds, a bat, baby mice, baby rats.........mostly they got helped on their way to that great wildlife centre in the sky, one pigeon survived well enough to be freed but the stupid thing came back to visit and got eaten by one of the dogs, a racing pigeon (not sure you have those in the US) survived and was collected by its very grateful owner who rewarded us for taking care of it

There's no "weirdo" section.... heck, the grocery store in the actual city that one practically needs a map and a GPS to navigate doesn't have a "weirdo" section either.. all that stuff is mixed in along with everything else.

Being Vegan/Vegetarian doesn't elevate you to some special level in life... I can guarantee there are plenty of Vegan foods out there that YOU haven't heard of or tried! Food choices are generally based on what we ate as a child and got used to. My mother HATES beets and asparagus so I never had either until I was an adult and my Mother-In-Law served them. My mom did all the cooking so she wasn't about to cook what she didn't want to eat.... both perfectly normal foods too! My husband ate next to no veggies because his mother cooked them all to death and served them up with zero seasonings. They tasted AWFUL so he thought that is what veggies taste like... boy was he surprised to learn otherwise.
yeah same here I work at grocery store and our dept. Has vegan soups and they're with the regular soups, they just say "vegan" on them

So are you actually wanting vegan/vegetarian recipe ideas then?

I would I think it'd be cool to have them if I needed, like I said I have vegetarian friends who I cook with/for so I'd like to be able to give them options plus I love experimenting in the kitchen my cooking style is basically "hmmm I wonder....oh hey that actually worked"

One thing we like is my take on a meal I had in a UK restaurant - sorry but I'm one of these cooks that just throws things in 'to taste' where seasoning concerned so a bit vague on amounts
I buy frozen puff pastry as I don't have time and patience to make it myself (or the skill!!!)
Line a dish with it and fill with cooked butternut squash that you season with salt, pepper and anything else you like - curry powder works really well - I find the best way to cook the squash is to jab holes in it and microwave it till its soft inside then split & scoop out the 'flesh' - you'll have to figure out the time as it depends on size of the squash
Top with some grated cheese - whatever you like best
Lightly sauté some sliced onions and them stir some marmalade into them - again amount is dependent on taste and quantity
Spread on top of the cheese
Bake until the pastry is visibly cooked and crisp - I find 380 setting works OK but can vary with size of oven I find
I usually use the small shallow individual dishes and serve in them rather than lift them out
You have to experiment a bit to get to your taste

I tried ovo-vegan for about 5 years and it wasn't working for my body. The switch had to be gradual but now I eat beef, chicken or pork maybe twice weekly and only 3 oz. I will reach for fish first. Beans didn't give me enough of the right protein so I had little stamina.

I already had all my tack before going vegan so I don't have to worry about too much. If I absolutely have to buy something that's leather I buy it used.
