Shorts

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!)

Sigh,

Tahn

Yep, onto her! She makes me feel so very inadequate! I have tried many of her recipes including the home made lara bars (which ROCK!)

Thanks for keeping an eye out for me, Carla **hugs**
