A vegan's adventures cooking for her meatatarian husband

My (sometimes) crazy family:

Me: post-30 west coast gal (originally east coast, shout out to the east coast!) who went from all veggie to mostly vegan in 2011. Pt worker, mommy, half marathoner and semi professional shopper and bargain hunter.

Him: almost 40 west coast guy who has happily been eating copious amounts of meat forever and ever and ever….you get the idea.

Mini us: little dude who has been veggie his short but amazing little life. Think you can’t raise a child vegetarian? Let me help you with that.

Our family meals:

Until very recently dinners went something like this:

Him: what are you making for dinner?

Me: some lovely veggie dish and a salad.

Him: great, I’ll have that too. Can you grab me a steak to go with it?

Me: SIGH

Recently the hubs decided in an effort to be more healthy he was going to eat whatever I made, within reason. Of course I’ve been waiting 8 years for this! So follow my adventures in cooking for our motley crew!

    Hehe my husband eats meat but I’m vegetarian. I’ve got in the routine now of making big one pot veg stews or curries and then he gets a bit of chicken on the side! Sometimes I make a big pot of chicken stew and then he can help himself and I make myself more interesting meals!
