I really identified with the narrative in this piece from my local newspaper: www.ottawacitizen.com/life/Vegetarians+car
The cookbook author interviewed talks about her kids, raised in her strict vegetarian household, who would come home from friends' places saying "bacon is good!" I totally was that kid, much to my vegetarian Mom's irritation! She also talks about flexing sometimes being about compromise between vegetarians and meat-lovers, and about her initial resistance to accomodating her family's desire for meat. This was my husband and I to a T - I definitely figured that because I did the cooking, I decided the menu, period. By that time I had come full circle back to strict vegetarianism, and it was the subject of much debate until I learned to put the "flex" in flexitarian.
Anyway, I thought some of the rest of you might enjoy this, and the recipes looked yummy too, with both meaty and non-meaty options for each!
