Sorry guys… inadvertently I took some time off from writing you about my culinary adventures. I just have been busy traveling and working while traveling. Besides, the Summer here in Puerto Rico has been way too hot for me to cook a lot.
Anyhow, as part of my summer adventures, I’ve been spending time with friends. Particularly at my friends Ana Yolanda and Rafa’s pool side. When we just want to chill and catch up on what has gone during the week, we just hang out there with other couple of friends.
The nice thing… that Ana is already well-versed in my vegetarian ways and has now two grills – one for veggie-only fare and one where they cook the rest of the “meaty” stuff they enjoy. And this was done voluntarily… I have never asked her to do that for me. But she understands how sensitive I am and how I will politely not accept to eat something that was cooked besides a piece of meat.
The menu a few weeks back was, as you can appreciate in the photo:
- Corn on the Cob – seasoned with cilantro butter… Ana Yolanda loves her cilantro.
- Veggie Kabobs – made with onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, red and yellow bell peppers and eggplant pieces
- Grilled Asparagus
This goes to show you that even your meat-eating friends can become more sensitive and aware of the needs of us, their vegetarian friends. Be an educational agent and the example for your friends… little by little they’ll understand where you’re coming from even better. These people might not share our lifestyle, but we sure share our lives together. Never give up on them…
