🌱 Vegan Cook vs. Boyfriend's Non-Vegan Desires

Our vegan protagonist finds herself in a culinary conundrum as her boyfriend requests non-vegan ingredients for dinner. 🥗 While she's been cooking vegan meals for him and his 6-year-old child (who's adapted well to the vegan lifestyle), he's now asking for cow's milk and butter to be included in dishes like mashed potatoes. 🥔 She's not comfortable cooking non-vegan food, but she's willing to buy it for him to cook himself. However, he's not keen on cooking after a long day at work, and it might mean the family can't eat dinner together. 🕰️ Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation and whether our vegan hero is in the wrong for sticking to her plant-based principles. 🌿
