So, I have a NEW JOB! Well, actually…I am still keeping my job at the law firm (for now), so my new job is only on weekends.
I am working at the Tumbleweed Center for Youth Development. I LOVE IT! The Tumbleweed YAP serves homeless, runaway, and at risk youth in Phoenix, Arizona. They provide shelter, counseling, outreach, job development, and more to youths ages 16 and 17 years old.
Anyway, one of my job duties is to make dinner. Which at 1st glance seems awesome, right?! Well, kind of. I can’t just make anything. Tumbleweed gets $$ from the goverment and so must serve a specific menu…including lots of meat. 😦
I informed my boss that I am a vegetarian and they seem to be cool with me not cooking the meat–the kids have to help out anyway. I would have the other YAP worker make the meat part of the meal…but, she’s vegan!! She actually doesn’t really like to cook either, I don’t think…
The silver lining is that SAT night is cook’s choice–so, we can make whatever we want! Oh, did I mention that I get free meals there–if I choose.
So, my question is…what are some meals that have a meat option, but can also be vegetarian/vegan? or…what are some naturally vegetarian/vegan dishes that omnis like?
