Yes, the meal is actually a carb fest! Most of the stuff is non meat items. I really enjoy turkey but it's because I have all of the other stuff to go with it.

maybe I should be doing an Atkins style diet until then but if I do, the carb shock might send me into a carb coma!

I love animals, but PETA is full of hypocrites. There are plenty of links online of their own wrongdoings involving animal abuse and killings. So, I tend not to take everything they supposedly stand for, too seriously.

Kids need to be off limits, and spewing their propaganda at them is tactless and ignorant.

I guess I'm a hypocrite. I love animals - cute cuddly kittens, puppies, etc. But, I'm also a hard core carnivore. I would chase a cow down in a field if I thought I could get a good steak out of it. *shrug*

If someone wants to be vegan, more power to them. If someone wants to eat all the animals - that's okay too (and some countries/people do eat those cute puppies and kittens). Personally, I'm a cutetarian - I don't eat anything that I think is cute and cuddly. If I see it in nature and think "awwwww - how sweet" I'm not eating it This includes: deer, rabbit, lamb and veal (baby cows are sweet) to name a few. Yes, I realize this is VERY arbitrary on my part but it works for me.

However, I definitely think PETA has gone over the edge once again - this time targeting children with their stupid ads. Not cool.

I don't think anything was directed at you. I think this is referring to the earlier post by gabulldawg and myself for not liking some of the ways some meat industries handle meat though we continue to buy it. If you see in our post we mention the we are hypocrites for complaining about certain meat companies but don't investigate what we purchase. I read into it that she feels like a hypocrite for loving animals but continues to eat meat.
