I am a firm meat eater (I could bite a cow), but I have a lot of vegetarian/vegan friends. I used to throw dinner parties a lot back in the day because I enjoyed cooking. Haven't done one in awhile but thought I might. I'd probably have to cook extra to accommodate my lovely veggie friends. Not a big deal, just more timely. Or, I could just put them at the kiddie veggie table with a head of lettuce and some carrots. They'd love it.
