I married into a family of meat eaters. My husband hunts (which I hate)
Braai is their favourite food, past time and culture.
This year I stopped eating meat. Something I have wanted to do for many years. I have only one regret and that is that I have not done so sooner.
However, I have worried about visiting the in-laws. My father-in-law cannot understand that someone doesn’t eat meat. He has given little Zander a hard time, even though Zander will eat mince but not other meat. I knew he would not take the news well and thought that he would make every meal difficult for me.
How wrong I was. Tommie informed them beforehand. My mother-in-law has gone out of her way to make food for me. She has gone shopping and searching for stuff for me to eat (and I did not expect her to at all) My father-in-law has not mentioned it once.
I appreciate it so much.
Probably more than they know.
