I hope everyone had a relaxing Thanksgiving break, full of yummy food and good times with family.
We had TWO Thanksgiving meals (on the same day) this year. Everything was so good, I should have worn stretch pants. Also, I’ve successfully regained all the weight I lost during my stint in the hospital, which was probably needed.
Thanksgiving #1 was at my sister-in-law’s house, and would be mostly un-vegan. However, she did go out of her way to get us vegan desserts, and her mother-in-law made a delicious cranberry salad. Since we were cooking anyways for Thanksgiving #2, we just made double batches of our sides.For the main dish for Thanksgiving #1, we brought the Gardein Savory Stuffed Turky. Since D and I would be the only two eating the fake meat, it was a perfect serving size!
Thanksgiving #2 was hosted at my aunt’s house. I’ve mentioned that my mom is vegan (I’m so proud!), and we also had some vegan-curious eaters, so I wanted to bring a Turkey alternative that all could try. When I heard that Gardein had a new holiday roast, and that our local co-op grocery had them on-sale, I snatched one up for our dinner.
We also helped out and brought a couple of side dishes: Twice-baked potato casserole, Green Bean Casserole, and some maple-roasted Brussels Sprouts. Of course, some family members wouldn’t touch the “vegan sides.” Oh well, they missed out, and more for me.
Sorry for the blurriness. I may have had a couple Thanksgiving cocktails by the time I took these.
We had TONS of leftovers. In fact, I still have a whole other potato casserole in my fridge. I always feel like I have too little, or too much food.
I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!
