Going to the in laws who are aware that I'm a new vegetarian. MIL is making shrimp orzo for me. I think she's got that Catholic mentality that fish isn't meat. She told DW what she was making and DW just didn't have the heart to tell her nothing with a mom or dad. Oh well. I don't want to be rude and my choice isn't morally based so it won't be the end of the world if eat this. In order to avoid this, over the next few times I see her I'll work it into the conversation that I'm becoming a "strict" vegetarian. Nothing with a face, and nothing with a mom or dad. (I find those descriptors of ovu/lacto vegetarians amusing).
