I've been trying to think of ways to still make it feel festive and special. In my mind, that somehow translated to paper turkeys hanging from the walls, so when a crafty mood struck me the other night, I sat down and made a dozen of these for a banner.
I've also been searching for fun new holiday recipes for the past several weeks, though as it usually happens, I put together the menu just a few days before I have to shop for everything.
(Quick note: I updated my food blog, but I will mention here that I am no longer vegan, though I plan to stay focused on whole foods and eat a largely plant-based, dairy-free, and gluten-free diet.)
And now, my Thanksgiving menu!
Ina Garten's Herb-Roasted Turkey Breast
Cranberry Orange Relish
Vegan Mash Potatoes
Vegan Broccoli Cranberry Salad (not the recipe I use, but closer than others online. We leave out stevia, cheese and bacon - use honey, veganaise, and apple cider vinegar)
Fresh Green Bean Casserole with Caramelized Onion Breadcrumbs
Spiced Maple Sweet Potato's
And for dessert I'm still torn between these:
Pumpkin Pie Brownie
Vegan Pumpkin Pie with Gluten-Free Spiced Pecan Crust
