Andrew (18): What’s the new cookbook all about?
Maureen (cautiously): It’s by two guys with beards. They’re obviously hipsters.
Nicholas (14, Suspiciously): But what’s it ABOUT? That doesn’t tell us anything.
Maureen: It’s all about healthy eating.
Maureen: OK. It’s vegetarian. [The table erupts with displeasure.]
Nicholas: A whole month of eating vegetarian? NO WAY.
Tim: I’m predicting this right now: you’re going to make maybe two things, we’re not going to like them, and then this book is going to the charity shop.
Maureen: We don’t know that. Maybe there will be lots of good things in there. This looks nice. Hang on, I have to take a picture before I put some parmesan cheese on it.
Tim: That’s not very vegan of you.
Nicholas: Wait a minute. Not only is it vegetarian, but it’s VEGAN? This gets worse and worse.
Maureen: How very open minded of all of you. Come on, we have to give it at try. It’s the whole point of the blog. This spaghetti is nice.
Andrew: Sure, it’s fine, but it’s better with cheese on it.
Maureen: I forgot how much chopping is involved with vegetarian meals. I’m definitely going to have to factor that into my prep schedule.
Tim: Sure, this spaghetti is good, but I’m still sure this cookbook will be off to the charity shop by the end of the month.
Maureen: We’ll see.
