Early Thanksgiving

We went to a friend's house last night for a rockin' vegan potluck with a thanksgiving/holiday theme.  Such a good idea!  

It's a pretty rare thing for a vegan to show up at a holiday gathering and be able to eat anything on the table.  Unless, of course, she/he was in charge of preparing all the food.  So it was really nice to show up with just a couple of dishes and sit down to an amazing meal.

We had Tofurky, Celebration Roast, gluten-free cornbread stuffing, 2 kinds of mashed potatoes, gravy (I made 2 quarts of it!), corn, homemade cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie with buckwheat crust, homemade pumpkin soy cream, and whipped topping.  Yum!

Before we left, the kitten came tearing down the stairs with a gift bag stuck around her belly.  It was a sad sight and the poor little kitten was confused about what was going on.  But I managed to snap a picture before I cut the bag off of her.  Now I know who's been ripping apart all my gift wrap supplies in my closet, huh?

excellent idea! We usually do an orphans' feast the day after thanksgiving (since none of us are actually orphans). delicious food for all!
