I’m No Turkey

Tonight we had our Thanksgiving dinner, technically it’s not until tomorrow but everyone was available tonight.  I ended up doing baking/cooking yesterday, and reheating everything today.  I made a dairy-free pumpkin pie with a kamut-flour crust I made:

And then I made two trays of this Curry-stuffed Acorn Squash, pardon the disgusting pan

And also this casserole which everyone liked a lot, but I forgot to take a picture of 😦


This morning I had a waffle sandwich with Pomegranate waffles, PB, banana and maple syrup with a cup of coffee.  And then for lunch was some quick guacamole, organic crackers and pineapple with some lemon green tea.

Dinner was amazing.  My mom’s best friend brought tabouli, and there was also DELICIOUS crispy baked brussel sprouts, nutritional yeast gravy, carrots, rolls, sweet potato/pecan dish, mashed potatoes, turnip puff and then the two dishes I brought.  Then the pumpkin pie, with a scoop of Purely Decadent soy icecream.  I am stuffed.

    Brooke- I used this recipe- http://bunnyfoot.blogspot.com/2005/11/vegan-pumpkin-pie.html and used Kamut flour, but I definitely had to double the soy milk added to the crust lol. It was really not holding together. Everybody still liked it even without the butter/eggs etc.!

    Agnes- Realllllly no pumpkin pie!? If you’ve looked around a lot of the blogs, there’s tons of pumpkin going on haha. I’ll add you to my blogroll too!

    Josie- There was turkey and dressing, but I just didn’t eat it 🙂 That would be nice though! haha I’m actually not vegan either, but I try to avoid dairy as much as possible. There was lots of veggie options, which is great.

  6. thanks for the link to the recipe! i think i’ll do a trial before thanksgiving!
