Laurie,

I'm sure you made the right decision!
I wish you all the best for your crochet business ;o)

and for the prices, don't you have something like this on your side of the pond?

I hope your new direction does wonder for improving your health. My wife and I eat a lot of lacto-ovo vegetarian and I hope you will share some new vegan recipes with us. Best wishes.....

Tough decision, LP. Good for you, taking the bull by the horns and shouting "Enough", hard for us over achievers.

Laurie, I know how hard that was for you. I had to do the same thing a couple of years ago, when I left my job for health reasons. But then I became a master gardener, got re-involved with my civic league, and found other outlets for my creativity, too. It's a transition, but I'm sure you're as relieved as I was to not have those responsibilities and expectations anymore Best wishes with all your new endeavours!

And leave it to CG to find something to combine your two big loves - baking and crocheting

I understand about the texture thing. I don't like it in miso soup. I only like it fried. That changes the texture completely.

I couldn't really eat much until I was 4 because of allergies, I survived on mostly soy formula, so today anytime I eat tofu or try to drink soy milk, I get a bit queezy. I just can't do it, and trust me I've tried. I've had so many people tell me that tofu has no flavor of its own that it'll taste like whatever it's cooked with, nope, all I can taste is the soy!
