I think vegetarian has a lot to offer but I think meat/fish eaters should have menu choices too, because evidently the scarcity of public who would frequent a restaurant with no meat or fish is too slim to base a business upon, successfully. Alas...

The "shrimp" looked like shrimp, and tasted like shrimp, but they were something not made of flesh.

I'm a meat eater. I don't go to vegetarian places, even with friends, any more. I'm not supposed to eat soy, so it makes it rather difficult.

After breakfast, I want to finish my car-washing job begun yesterday afternoon (ran out of gas - me, not the car). Still need to do the glass inside and out, then vacuum the trunk. I've been hauling home mulch in bags, which always seem to have a hole somewhere.
