Well, kiddies, it's certainly been a while. I guess this blog is turning into a seasonal thing (see the last post about summer gazpacho). This Thanksgiving was another solitary one. My poor husband cooked his turkey carcass for himself and ate the leftovers in a stew for about a week (something that's fast becoming a tradition for him around here). My son would never eat something like that in a million years, and, in fact, when someone asked him if he was going to eat turkey, he started going on and on about how he was not, in fact, a turkey -- he did NOT have wings and did NOT fly. Still not sure what exactly goes on in his little brain, but I'm very curious :)
As for my meal -- it was really good! REALLY good. I'd say about as close to a traditional Thanksgiving meal as you're going to get without meat, dairy, or grains. The stuffing absolutely tasted EXACTLY like stuffing but without the heavy afterfeel!!!
I don't like Tofurkey so I was at a loss when I knew I wanted to make myself a "real" Thanksgiving meal but I didn't really want to include grains, and of course, wanted to keep it vegan. Exact measurements for the "stuffing" to come soon but I wanted to show you, give some links, and wish you a happy, healthy holiday season.
I hope I post at some point during it all (just don't count on it).
