Kirstin: This was a complete success! Well apart from the time it took to cut up all the vegetables. And the length of time it took to cook on the hob. And the fact that Miles really liked it, but would have preferred if it had included chicken too! I have to admit I am slightly worried about the effect of all that cauliflower on my insides today; should be interesting. Especially as I am wearing a jumpsuit.
But as Tom said, he would eat vegan more often if we ate things like this! So that’s a good start to the month.
Maureen: You were right about this cookbook. It’s very orange.
Kirstin: It’s very fluoresecent, which means we’re getting old, because we remember fluoresence the first time around, back when it was fashionable.
Maureen: So a month of vegetarian meals, then. I think I’m going to neglect to tell my family.
Kirstin: But it’s a good thing to do a vegan book. We wanted to do a vegan book because we should all be eating less meat and this is one way to do that.
Maureen: Even though it’s a vegan book, I can already tell you that I’ll be using butter. I couldn’t live without it, and it’s unlikely I’ll be using coconut oil again, but we’ll see.
Kirstin: We’ve done vegan books before.
Maureen: Yes, it’s been mixed results at best with the previous vegan books. But we’re willing to have another go. The recipes do look good though. There’s a lot of things I’d like to try. But I know I’m not going to be a vegan by the end of this month.
Kirstin: No, me neither.
