Go Vegan!

Happiness is not so much in having as sharing. We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. -Norman MacEwan

There is always more room for mumbles

I think he's failing to read between the lines. This is fundamentally a problem that involves a teenager (I'm guessing?) asserting her independence and her parents being unprepared for it. The stuff about being insulted that she wants to cook and that she isn't taking part in family traditions makes that pretty clear. That it happens to take the form of a conflict about diet is kind of secondary.

Also, did he really attempt to resolve the problem that they don't like her cooking by suggesting that she cook for them? Hey, thanks, guy. I wish I had that kind of incisive problem-solving skill.
-Mumbles in response to dumb guy getting pissed at some poor vegan kid.

God I love mumbles
