Michelle gets home Wednesday! Yay! (Never mind that this isn’t a home she has ever lived in for more than a couple of weeks, it has her mommies and she is our baby and that means she is home)
Last time she was home, she decided to become a vegan. (After Culver’s and other non-veg meals) She’s stuck with it or so she says.
She is starting a big positive change in her life while here this time, so, I thought I would yes be supportive in one way and not provide just enough vegan food for her to scrounge. In the past, I have ensured a v*g wouldn’t starve, but no PLANS. I also think it will be good for us as a family to get rid of a lot of the meat dependence we have fallen into since moving north.
My carnivore child may go into total rebellion. She’s 12 so, at “that age” anyway. She said she would stock up on jerky or something before coming over. Boy child might be creeped out by the change in food schedule, but he handles that better, misses her and thus is more tolerant. So below is the plan through the end of the month.
