Hi, Bees! I wanted to start a thread for all of us in “mixed marriages” or partnerships – couples where one person eats meat and the other is some variety of non-meat-eater.
My husband and I have been pretty successful so far in adapting and accommodating one another, but I will always be happy to hear new ideas and suggestions, try new recipes, etc. that we both will enjoy. He is the meat eater, and I suppose “pescatarian” is the best descriptor for me: I avoid meat but I eat eggs and dairy, and I will occasionally eat a little fish or seafood.
DH teases me that I make him eat “so many vegetables!”, but we have grown to actually really enjoy cooking together and finding options that accommodate both of us. We often do things like fajitas, quesadillas, etc., where it’s easy to make a basic vegetarian filling and then he will add a little meat to his while he’s assembling it. Or I’ll make a vegetarian main dish and he will eat a smaller serving of it and fix himself a bit of meat on the side.
What are some other dishes, recipes, strategies, etc., that Bees in mixed relationships have used?
