What am I suppose to do? I became a vegeterian this year and (while I DO NOT celebrate Thanksgiving) the entire family is getting together as usual, but everything is pork this, and turkey that! Greens are made w/neckbones, black eye peas w/ bacon, hams, turkeys, duck, OMG I can go on forever!!! Im so scared to face my relatives. They are going to force me to eat and I just know that once I tell MY fam that I am vegeterian, they will laugh and then try to change my mind...uugghhh!
Any advice on how to deal? Thanx!

If they will lough at you let them, brush it off stand up for what you are and the choices you made, bring your favorite vegetarian dish and eat it with pride momma.

If this is your family, talk to your mom maybe give her a vegetarian cook book. Maybe you could make a dish or two for yourself ans bring them along. My brother has been a vegetarian since high school and my mom always makes things for him so that he is not completely left out. She will even make somethings the regular way and the vegetarian way. Frankly i can't tell the difference between them most of the time.
