Q: My fiancée and I just moved in to our first post-college apartment together in September. She’s a vegetarian and I’m an omnivore. This really hasn’t been an issue previously; we used to live with other people so there were plenty of other meat eaters around. But now that it’s just the two of us I often find it hard to cook a satisfying meal for the both of us without wasting meat..
