I’m been thinking a lot lately about what I’m eating and why I might be eating it. I have a few friends who are Vegan and they are happy with that aspect of what the eat. But mean I’m very careful about the amount of red meat I put into my body but I haven’t quite given up on the notion of mean yet. Yes I believe in animal rights and what might cruel and unusual punishment toward those same animals I still haven’t given up the thought of not eating those same animals yet. I don’t know if my thinking stems from me growing up on a farm or not but it could be.
I was raised that everything on the farm was raised either to sale or eat or both. Now every now and then I do love my burgers, chicken fried steaks but that is pretty much it for that kind of food. Of course when I make my spaghetti sauce I always like to add meat to it whether it be polish sausage or hamburger meat or both it is just to give that sauce a little more flavor.
I want to visit my wonderful friends Susie, Don and their son Roy but I believe they are all Vegan would I upset them if I didn’t eat what they had or would it hurt my feelings if the situation was reversed and I cooked for them and they didn’t eat what I cooked? I would never go out of my way to hurt someone I cared about but I’m at a lost for words cause I’m not sure what is proper in a a situation like this. This hasn’t happened yet and I don’t want it to happen some things are more important than eating and this friendship to me is a heck of lot more important than what I might or might not eat.
I’m old and I know that I learn something new every day I just hope I have learned enough in this matter.
