I recently found a place to live...

I'm sharing a house with 4 other people, one of whom is a sister production worker whom I met on a job. The household is strictly VEGAN, and most of the folks here are involved in the Animal Rights movement. There's a really great dog and cat here.

My only problem with them is they cook a lot of food using "fake" dairy type ingredients. Like Cheesecake made with tofu cream cheese, or pasta sauce that's "creamy" from using, again Tofu or margarine as opposed to butter or cream.

I mean, how about some basic, normal, vegetarian food that doesn't purport to be non-vegetarian food?

How about green vegetables sauteed in olive oil over brown rice and NOTHING remotely dairy about them? Imagine if you knew a guy who was keeping Kosher, but who constantly ate fake, non-pork-based bacon. It would be alittle bit weird, wouldn't it?

Well, that's all I want to say about these folks. Anyway, it's only a minor tiff.

At least I've got my own room, with a door on it, as opposed to crashing on someone's couch in their living room. PEACE!
