LOL. Sometimes readers read WAY more into a sentence than what is really written. Sometimes readers come into a thread without reading parts before, and don't get all the context of what was said earlier. It's like that kid's game where a whispered idea changes as it goes around a big circle.
Remember what I said earlier? "Tofu is Communist, and it will make you sterile". I believe that made at least one(1) person laugh. Yes KKV, I am very "accommodating" when it comes to producing dishes made from tofu. Unlike with veal and foie gras, I have no problemmo whatsoever with the inhumanity thrust upon the soy bean.
On another note, I made the "onion soup" from my post #17. As it turned out, I(we) loved the soup, it was very tasty. I will next time make a few changes though. Those little cute ramekins are out. I will also add a shot of bourbon to the mix.
One thing that gashes a big separation between animals and human-beings, aside from the opposable thumb, are our abilities to use abstract reason, language, introspection and make seriously complex decisions. After around 200,000 years of domestication, I think good old Homo sapiens has the ability to do just fine on a vegetarian or even vegan diet. You don't need to agree, but you do have to let other people chose for themselves.
