First - I was planning to list a week of recipes for you to look over, ponder, and then make and consume this coming Thursday.
Then - I decided to wait. I figured I would make up a pile of food and then tell you about it in the up coming week(s).
Now - I'm hungry and I have Thanksgiving on the brain... so here I am! Below are listed what I PLAN on having for Thanksgiving. Some of the items I have made some I have made up and plan on testing out on Thursday (candied sweet potatoes are a prime example) - so that means I just don't know how this will turn out.
Will it be the best idea I've ever had?
Will it be the worst? (no - and BOY do I have the baggage to prove it! phew!)
Will it be the most funnest thing ever? (once again no - funnest isn't a word)
HERE WE GO!
For the "Bird" we will be having the Turtle Island "Tofurky" Holiday Roast. Complete with wild rice stuffing and a gelatinous gravy. (all gravy is gelatinous when cold. this is normal. please remain calm.)
turtle island and tofurky. This is not my first bird-less bird, but it certainly is my favorite. I've had the kind you see in television shows that make fun of vegans/vegetarians where its looks like a cardboard cut out (and it tastes like one too). Tofurky is VEGAN - meaning no animal products byproducts at all.
If you're not vegan - and aren't a fan of tofurky (shame on you...) try Quorn! They have a Roast Log - also delicious.
WARNING: DO NOT THINK THAT BECAUSE THIS BIRD IS BIRDLESS
IT WILL TAKE 10 MINUTES TO COOK.
BOTH OF THESE ROASTS TAKE OVER AN HOUR (over 1 <= hour) TO BAKE.
Don't wait until the last second or you really will be sands bird.
Breakfast: (lets start at the top folks!)
Yes. Pumpkin. Muffins. YUM!!
I'm going to use this recipe I found on All Recipes.com and pop it into the Veganizer - beep! beep! beep! beep! BEEEP!!! VOILA!
