Barnmouse, I always feel the need to apologize to other vegans when I’m being a shitty vegan. It’s like a vegan confessional :p And I like coconut oil, too…but only when it’s really solid. The squishy, half-melted state mine is in lately is crazy.
Mo, I work with a group that makes meals for hungry folks every Friday, and I end up in charge of cooking every other month…it’s been a huge adjustment to do that while not eating any of it :p Same sorta deal as your catering thing, I guess. Fortunately, I’ve gotten really good at seasoning “blind,” according to other people who I have check the flavor. I guess that’s a good skill to have?
