I never was much of a meat eater. After a 6 week wilderness hike five years ago I became less of a meat eater. Since then I went to 3 or 4 meals a week…now I’m just down to once a week or rarely, twice. (if I have leftovers).
I also am dating a veggie guy, my good friends (of which I know the whole family parents, kids, grandkids) are veg. another one of my friends is from the pacific and their culture as a whole dosn’t eat alot of meat. Other friends don’t care either way. My parents are semi open to it. One of my friends however…
…lets just say he’s reacted poorly. He’s an older bachellor who I usually cook for/go out to eat every three or four weeks. When I did cook/go out to eat that’s when I ate/cooked meat. Anyway.
What is the problem is that most of my friends are fine or WANT veg dishes. This friend, however, is a set-in-his-ways meat guy. He refuses to eat anything that “pretends” to be meat, and sais that no meal is complete with meat.
As a hostess am I obligated by manners to get meat for my friend?
Miss manners would dictate that a meat-eating host make a resonable accomidation for a veggie, so do veggies make the same accomidations for meat eaters?
