(Strip Number 371, Original Publication Date, 24 February 1983)
Panel 1: We start things off with Lizzie telling Mama that she's hungry. Since Elly needs to enforce rigid meal times as it's one of the few things that she can actually control, she shushes and not-nows her.
Panel 2: Since Phil is a free-thinking anarchist, he volunteers to oppose the needs of society by offering to cook the hot dogs that he thinks that he had in the fridge.
Panel 3: He tells Elly that his roomies are comic strip vegans but allowed him a small corner of the Kelvinator for his own use.
Panel 4: Since, as I said, they're what dumbass omnivore Lynn thinks of when she thinks about vegetarians, the thing is loaded with carrots; since it is, Phil declares that he might need a scythe.
Summary: What he also needs is to be told "live and let live" applies to other people and not just him. That's because he ends up throwing a temper fit upon learning that they tossed what for all we know could have been expired hot dogs. Vegetables should be green, tube steak, not so much.
