I could become a Vegan, but under one condition. I would have to do without Tofurkey Sausages. Not matter what I did with them there sausages last night they still tasted like dead, soggy, and re-cycled cardboard. I fried them with onions and then simmered them in apple cider vinegar and chicken broth.
