Happy Thanksgiving

Gobble Gobble

I’m truly not a fanatic when it comes to eating RAW and on occasion, I will eat meat (Paleo) and I really do love Thanksgiving Turkey.  However, I have one daughter who will not eat any animal that was once living except for fish.  So finding recipes are always a challenge.

Last year, I did make her a Tofurkey dinner


and she truly enjoyed it, but I’m not thrilled with it because it’s made with Soy.  So I will not be doing that this year.  This year, I will be experimenting with a new recipe that’s floating around my head for a “Meatless Meatloaf”.  I will post that recipe only if it comes out tasty and delicious!

In the meantime — I will be bringing a couple of vegetarian dishes to my Thanksgiving Get Together.  And yes — they will be “cooked”.  I’ve been requested not to bring “raw” dishes to the feast!!

The first dish I am making is Vegan Orange Cinnamon Sweet Potatos with Candied Maple Pecans from one of my favorite Bloggers The Blender Girl.  However, I will be cutting this recipe in half.

**This recipe calls for Candied Maple Pecans so I’m including the link to that as well.  I hope they make it into the salad!!

The second recipe is also from The Blender Girl  and that is for Lemon Garlic String Beans  (The Blender Girl always has a “Piggy Tip” on the bottom of her posts.  Click on them for same amazing “tips”).

Whatever it is you’re serving on this Thanksgiving or cooking to bring to a Thanksgiving Meal — please remember to give “Thanks” for the wonderful food, friends and family and most of all . . .



Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!

My thoughts and prayers are with those who suffered from Hurricane Sandy this year.  I know Thanksgiving may not be what it was in the past.  Hopefully, next year will be better.
