Vegan at home, vegetarian at other people's home?

What do you think about the ethical implications of buying and consuming only vegan products at home and when you go to the supermarket to shop etc, but eating a vegetarian diet when someone else prepares a meal for you in their home?

A sort of Peter Singer, utilitarian approach?

I eat kumara at other peoples houses
I think if someones invited you to dinner, you should eat what they've prepared, if they've gone to the extra effort and not known the difference between vege and vegan then you should chow down anyway. Then explain the difference.

Each to what they feel comfortable with, you decide on your boundaries and it will be right for you.

I have been vegan a long time and havn't had trouble with eating out at others over that time.

Tis exactly how I live. Singer's utilitarianism appeals to me a whole lot too.
