Greetings from California. My wife and I arrived here last night for a two-week vacation in the San Bernardino area. We come here almost every year, around this time, to visit her family. For lunch today, my brother-in-law brought us to a newly opened vegetarian restaurant in Redlands. His wife and daughter-in-law are vegetarians and he's making his first moves towards the lifestyle. Anyway, we ordered the staple dishes---orange chicken, sizzling platter, Buddhist delight, a beef dish. I was glad we were actually in a vegetarian restaurant because my wife refuses to even try one in New Jersey. Well, she was pleasantly surprised. I have tried convincing her that vegetarian food has gone a long way from being just alfalfa sprouts and carrots. Vegetarian food is not rabbit food. There is a lot of creativity and flavor in vegetarian food. She actually liked it. I think we've made a breakthrough here.
