I don't mean to pick on you specifically, but I've been seeing this
misues of the term "vegan" a number of times.  Most recently in a
radio commercial.

Just to clarify:

vegetarian: no meat, no fish, no chicken, no turkey.  Maybe milk or eggs.

vegan: vegetarian plus no milk nor eggs and probably no honey.

It sounds funny to say "I'm not vegan so I will use chicken".  What
you should say is "I'm not vegetarian so I will use chicken".  or
"I'm not vegan, so I will use eggs".  

While what you say is not wrong per se, it's just odd.  It's sort of
like saying "I don't have a Ph.D, so I haven't gone to graduate
school".  Yes, it is true that a PhD has gone to graduate school (and
that a vegan doesn't eat chicken), but it sounds odd.

In any case, this is a vegetarian list, so only vegetarian recipes (no
fish or chicken, etc) can be posted.  Recipes need not be vegan but
they must be vegetarian.
