At a BBQ Saturday night:

Daughter to father: What's that? (pointing to a couscous dish I made)
Father to daughter: It's a rice dish, I think.
Me: It's couscous.
Father to Daughter: Oh, you won't like it.

(It was actually surprising to watch who ate the couscous, and who chose to eat the standard BBQ food of coleslaw and potato salad).

Host to Me (we've never met): So what made you go vegan?
Me: Well...(insert usual banter here)
Host: (actually the host must have decided that I was quite boring and turned away and appeared to not be interested in the question that SHE asked!)

Taking a short break

I know I have been rather behind on my food blogging of late. It's about to get worse! I've got a new focus starting TODAY and it involves weight loss (you can read about it on my other blog Fat Chance). Since weight loss is the main theme, I doubt very much whether I will have any scrumptious foods to share with you (if I do, you'll be the first to know!!).

So, wish me luck, maybe leave me some encouraging comments on my Fat Chance blog where I have vowed to post daily (albeit briefly) about my progress. I shall return in no time - a new, healthier, more confident Tahnea.

I'll be back.
