Sunday we had some folks over to celebrate Thanksgiving. It was a nice mix of American, Canadian, Indian & Dutch friends! It was entirely vegetarian & while I usually steer away from being preachy about not eating meat & fish, I am going to put this out there: Thanksgiving is still awesome without turkey!
We had roasted pumpkin-thyme turnovers, garlic mashed potatoes, Vietnamese lemongrass & chili string beans, ginger roasted tofu with stuffing, penne with fontina, vegan spinach dip, salad, braised sprouts, spicy lentils, pumpkin pie, pecan pie & banana pudding. Granted, the majority of guests were vegetarians, but the meat eaters were quite happy, too.
It’s always a bit strange not to be in the US for the holiday, but since it’s so close to Christmas & we usually do our big travel then, the celebration is typically on the weekend before. It’s nice to be with other Americans who might feel a bit homesick.
However you spend yours I hope it’s lovely. Best wishes! xx
