giving thanks.

I hope that all the Americans had a wonderful and loving Thanksgiving! I have so much to be grateful for this year, and I'm just lucky to have had such a pleasant holiday with smoothly prepared food. A shocker, considering the kitchen mayhem we've endured in past years and will endure in the years to come. I didn't do much in the way of originality for the feast, so I'll just leave you with a few recap shots.

Thanksgiving Spread
Clockwise from bottom: cranberry sauce, candied yams (non-vegetarian), delicata & butternut squash, tequila-lime yam hash, roasted brussel sprouts with garlic.

Impossible Vegan Pumpkin Pie

I also made a seitan "turkey" loaf with the Mustard Sauce from Veganomicon, but it was not particularly gorgeous and I left it unphotographed. Of course, we have been living solely off of leftovers for the past day or so. Pumpkin Pie Milkshake, anyone? That was my balanced breakfast this morning...

That definitely looks like a spread to be thankful for. :)

Happy belated Thanksgiving!
