If you think a tofu-filled taco would be anathema to those fond of the traditional meat-filled staple, think again. "It was very good," said Rosario Palomares, who had her first taste at a home cooking class sponsored by the Vegetarian Society. In gatherings reminiscent of neighborhood Tupperware parties, the Vegetarian Society is attempting to deliver its meatless message to the Valley's Latino community.

My admitting that I could not be a vegetarian because I can not give up eating hot dogs at baseball games has brought me more abuse than my revelation that God's name is Random Chance. N. Coulter of Venice calls my column "the subtle height of distaste," and says I am no longer "Mr. Nice Guy." "I hope you live long enough," writes Judith Lautner of San Luis Obispo, "to think again about your statements on eating hot dogs and beer at baseball games."

The guests of honor will not be dressed to kill at the Vegetarian Society's Thanksgiving feast today at Balboa Lake in Sepulveda Dam Recreation Area. No one-way trips to the table for these birds. They will be chauffeured from Malibu and will stuff themselves before the humans sit down to eat mock turkey--a wheat product. What do turkeys eat at Thanksgiving? "Well, they especially like corn-bread stuffing and green peas," says Victor Forsythe, the society's executive director.
