With that short of notice, I say she gets dry toast and a piece of fruit. Gheez...what are you a miracle worker? Give her what you got and don't worry.

Thanks all. She is the daughter of one of my cabin guests who was in the area for a funeral. I only was just told about her being here when they called into the kitchen. I gave her baked peaches with a crunchy granola topping.
Then she called the kitchen and asked if the margarine I used was vegan too.

I expect to be canonized shortly.

Ask her if she uses dryer sheets...the reason they make everything feel so smooth? Animal fat.
And for pity sake, she could try to get over herself for a minute when she imposed the way she did unannounced. 'Veganism' is a choice, not a food-related illness. I respect the choice, but do not lecture me or question my cooking.
She's probably a lot of fun at family get-togethers too.

Unless you are a restaurant or a spa, you can not be expected to create vegan entrees out of thin air on command.
Some people, jeez....

BTW did she just show up to visit her parents? Was she a paying guest?

I got that info from a vegan, but can't really track down a valid source for info. It seems like eveywhere I look the same article is being quoted. And mostly everyone wants to talk about the carcinogens.

I wouldn't doubt it, they use sheep fat in hand lotions, and until a few years ago not many knew it was in there. Lanolin.

Edited to add - it is not in killing the sheep, from their wool, but still if you are vegan then no animal byproducts at all are to be used.

Hey, I knew that one! But never gave it much thought. I'm actually going to just figure out how to use olive oil for lotion after reading up on the stuff that's in lotion. All these things that could possibly disrupt so many different functions of the nervous system, hormones, etc.
