True Blood Is Making Me Want To Be a Vegan

I love HBO's True Blood, the sexy, often hilarious (the battle-hardened and still swanky Lafayette deserves a spin-off) drama based on The Southern Vampire Mysteries, the serialized novels by Charlaine Harris, set in rural Louisiana. Every Sunday my friends come over, and I cook dinner, usually something southern or French, to be festive. Just as we're about to bite into our chicken pot pies, there's a blood bath on screen, one character ripping into a neck or crushing in a skull and getting bodily goo everywhere. Eating meat and watching True Blood doesn't always sit well, so in the spirit of the conscientious Bill Compton, our Sunday's have gone vegan, and no one is complaining. It's actually quite delicious and easy to cook, that after enough trials, you start to notice your taste for meat waning.
