I don’t understand why people say that fish is not meat. Meat is defined as “the flesh of an animal as food.” Why isn’t fish considered a meat then?! Why do religions act like it is not meat? Why is the flesh of a fish not considered meat? It literally makes no sense to me. I understand it is food from the sea, hence seafood, but seafood is just meat from the “sea.”
obligatory throwaway because I don’t want angry vegans in my inbox.My husband is from the south and let me just say this, he hates vegans. His family is a stereotypical country one and they get ridiculously mad when they see beyond meat etc adverts on the tv. They’re practically vegan phobic and hate any menu which says suitable for vegetarians or vegans etc. This never really bothered me and I thought it was funny because I ate meat and I didnt think it was a big deal.
My daughter (now6) was born allergic to a lot of things, like eggs and is also intolerant to lactose and grass, pollen etc. She rarely got to go to birthday parties because we couldn’t let her eat anything there. when she was a baby my husband ate an egg sandwich and kissed her and she broke out in hives and we had to take her to the doctor. All new foods were tried under medical supervision.
While she can eat meat she can’t eat any fun meat like nuggets because of egg contact. One of the kids she recently met with is our new Neighbour who is around four houses away. They are completely vegan and their son doesn’t eat anything they don’t. So at his birthday she could eat the actual cake and not a muffin I’d sent. It cheered her up and they had play dates even when we weren’t supposed to. I was glad she made a friend.
His parents hadn’t called for a while and didn’t pick up ours. When I saw his dad while I was out I was like ‘hey what’s wrong‘ and he was really hostile, telling me to never talk to him or his wife again and that he’d pray for my daughter. I thought that was crossing the line. He pulled his phone out and showed me a very rude text from my husband. I didn’t believe his story that my husband started a fight, but when I asked him about it he was proud that Shelia wasn’t hanging out with hippies. I remembered the vegan hate and I was like until he apologized to that family and they agreed to let their kid play with ours I’d never cook meat again. He said I needed to get over it and do my Job but I am cooking, just not what he would like. AITA
Edit: I will try to find couple’s counseling although I don’t think he’ll agree to it. I hope Ina forgives me (vegan mom, since this blew up, I’m really very sorry and I won’t bother you again.) thank you all for your responses.
And no, I’m not vegan or vegetarian. Meat on pizza is fine, great even. A pizza loaded down with so many different meats that chunks of sausage fall off when I’m trying to eat it is not even appetizing. There are so many contrasting meat-flavors and I really don’t understand why it is so popular. I truly think some of its popularity stems from some weird place of machismo and anti-veganism. Many of the same people who order meat lovers pizza turn their nose up at even the mention of vegetable toppings. And you know what? There are some bomb ass pizzas with veggies on them.
In the Middle East, we love soup! Most households will have soup at least once a week, and that even holds true for some people in the hot summers. One of the most popular soups throughout the region is Harira which has Moroccan and North African origins. It's essentially a tomato based soup that is made with meat, chickpeas and lentils, as well as a number of herbs and warming spices. Once cooked, the soup is thickened, and the result is a warmly spiced soup with a silky smooth texture and a chunky array of meat and legumes.

Harira is a soup that hails from Morocco as well as Algeria and Tunisia, and it's regarded as one of the most important foods in the Maghrebi Kitchen. It's one of the most well known soups in the Middle East other than Lentil soup (see my recipe) and Orzo soup, and it's popularity ranks it alongside Couscous and Tagines as significant culinary exports. One of the main reasons why Harira is so popular, is it's warm flavour profile which it gets from Ginger and Cinnamon, they give it a flavour that is distinctively North African. Apart from the actual heat warmth of the soup, the spices leave a long lasting savoury warm flavour similar to the Libyan Mbakbaka I made a few months back, if you tried that and liked it, you'll definitely enjoy this. The great thing about Harira is that it can be considered a complete nutritious meal, thanks to the well rounded proteins and carbohydrates it contains.
Alongside the flavours, the texture of the soup is a really important characteristic of Harira. The meat used in the dish is cut into tiny pieces so they match the size of the re-hydrated chickpeas (about 1 cm or 3/8" cubed). These along with green lentils provide a pleasant chunky texture to the soup and give it some chewable substance. The base of the soup also contributes significantly to the texture. Once the soup is fully cooked, a slurry of flour and water is mixed in, which thick... keep reading on reddit ➡
The original Super Meat Boy was released 10 years ago in 2010. It was an instant hit and helped put indie games on the map. It is now widely regarded as one of the greatest platformers of all time. The game, thanks to its own merits and the details its development and release journey being chronicled in Indie Game: The Movie, wormed its way into a lot of hearts. I'm not sure what happened. I haven't seen any discussion on this sub and the only media coverage I've seen is a mention on RPS, a review on The Young Folks, and as of this morning a review on Nintendo Life.
I'm not saying that there aren't some obvious reasons that people could be skeptical about the quality of the game -- it began its life as a mobile-only endless runner (and remained an auto-runner for its full release), uses procedural generation (sort of), has been delayed a bunch and co-creator Ed McMillen is no longer involved in the project. That said, basically no discussion or coverage surrounding its release is a bit strange to me. How do y'all feel? Has anyone played it? Thoughts?
EDIT: I suppose I should have said, "what prevented the hype?". I agree with those of you saying that there was never much hype.
