Hi, linguist here. Over time, meanings of words change based on their everyday usage by speakers of whatever the language in question is. This concept is called semantic drift . Did you know that the English word 'lady' once referred only to women who kneaded bread? Just like we can use 'lady' to refer to any woman today, we can use 'milk' to refer to any milk-like substance/ alternative even though it may not be liquid secreted from the mammary glands of a mammal because that is what most of English-speaking society has conventionalised.

So in short, yes, you can "brown, watery drink" milk.

The coconut lime cupcakes from Isa Chandra Moskowitz' Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World are the best cupcakes I've ever made. Cheap and easy too.

Nothing. I ordered a vegetarian <chickpea> curry, and forgot to check the container before I went back to work. It was a chicken curry.

I am awesome at using chopsticks. When I was a kid, I used them to eat everything from spaghetti to salad to grapes because it was just a lot more fun than using a fork and knife.

I rarely eat breakfast, so if I do have an English muffin with Nutella in the mornings, I figure it's better than nothing. And better than eating it off a spoon later.

My grandparents used to have this in their summer home. My grandfather installed it decades ago, and I was always afraid of falling down the stairs because of it. I'll have to let him know that he is a trendsetter...

I definitely get at least five servings a day if not more. I usually got enough fruit but before I was vegetarian I didn't always get the recommended servings of vegetables. Now I add vegetables to everything for texture and getting enough has been a breeze.

My Russell Hobbes electric kettle is easily my most used appliance, second only to my refrigerator. I use it 4-5 times a day for tea. I don't know if it is a cultural thing but I noticed that Canadians (like myself) usually have one, and American households tend not to have one.

I'm a university student living alone. My schedule is all over the place which means that I've stopped the whole breakfast-lunch-supper thing. I eat when I am hungry and how much I am hungry for. This usually means that I snack until late afternoon, have a large meal then, and then have a smaller meal late in the evening.

No, I'm a vegetarian. Growing up though, I had a lot of meat-and-potatoes type meals so it has been nice to experiment with different kinds of foods. Food is a lot more exciting when you don't rely on meat isn't the focus.
