Oh boy do I owe you guys an update. Too bad for you my pretties… I’m too busy cooking up a vegan Thanksgiving storm! Here’s partial proof (there are a lot more ingredients in the fridge and freezer which I didn’t feel like dragging out for the photo):
Really it’s a big deal considering I hardly ever cook and I’m serving this stuff to my very-not-vegetarian family. I’m making a Chickpea, Spinach, Cranberry & Walnut Tart (from VegNews magazine, Nov. 07), Red Pepper, Hemp Cornbread (from Extraveganza) & the infamous Pumpkin Couscous Cake. They’re all going to love it and beg me for more vegan food. That is if I don’t mess any of it up. If everything goes as planned and as awesomely as I expect it to, rest assured there will be photos.
In the meantime I wanted to share a couple of last minute cruelty-free Thanksgiving links:
For as little as $25 you can sponsor a turkey who will be very thankful. This year I adopted Serendipity because she reminds me of my kitty. Start a new tradition, don’t eat a bird… save one!
“An opportunity to encourage friends, family and neighbors to adopt compassionate alternatives to unnecessarily cruel turkey dinners. We accomplish this by demonstrating the great taste and superior nutrition of gourmet vegan recipes and a variety of festive plant-based foods.”
Wishing you all a thoughtful and delicious holiday!
