Getting it off my chest.
I'm not normally a combative or confrontational person.
But today I'm (apparently) in a fighting mood.
I got a comment today, on a post from last week, that just got me mad.
Here it is:

No offence (and I am sure you've got this before), but chicken is animal and chicken-eating people are NOT vegetarian.
Kudos for cutting back on animal products but vegetarians do not eat creatures like birds and fish

I have no idea who you are (signing in as 'anonymous' is a bit cowardly, if you're going to leave a comment like this), but if you'd read on, you'd learn that I always use Veat, a vegetarian chicken substitute. I have not eaten meat (chicken, pork, fish, beef) of any kind in close to ten years. The 'chicken' in the picture is, in fact, a Veat 'chicken breast'.
I really don't need a complete stranger coming here telling me how to live my life...if anyone knows about the vegetarian lifestyle, it's me.
Next time? Get your facts straight before you tell someone off.
I don't like people making assumptions, and I really don't like when they feel they have to correct someone. I don't manage these blogs to get into arguments with people. Leaving a comment like that is just rude, if you ask me. If he/she really wanted to share some information with me, my email address is right here on the blog...getting in touch with me, in private, would have been the polite way to do it.
If you don't like something you see here? GO AWAY. I don't need people like that in my life.
And now back to our regularly scheduled blogging...
