When you're a vegetarian, just about any "sides" made in large enough portions can become Main Courses, but I'm going to make an effort to have a separate section for them anyway.
I bake potatoes by piercing their skin several times with a fork, brushing them with olive oil and sea salt, then baking them directly on the oven rack at 400F for 45 minutes. Then I load them up with fixings like soy margarine, soy cheese, tofu sour cream, vegan bacon bits, salt, fresh ground pepper, hot sauce, steamed broccoli, green beans, canned veggie chili, salsa, black beans, avocado, corn, etc.
A morgue is a morgue is a morgue. They can paint the walls with aggressively
cheerful primary colors and splashy bold graphics, but it's still a holding
place for the dead until they can be parted out to organ banks. Not that I
would have cared normally but my viewpoint was skewed. The relentless
pleasance of the room I sat in seemed only grotesque.
