Or Buy Nothing Day or Fur Free Friday or whatever you celebrate the day after consuming copious amounts of food. Yesterday, Philip and I hosted our first annual family Thanksgiving day feast. All of the foods were vegan and we got to use my great aunt's china that has been sitting in a box for five years. We pretty much stuck with the Thanksgiving Day standard dishes, just in their vegan form. We had green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes and gravy (we're a potato loving bunch), cranberry sauce, etc. and for the main dish we had puff pastry cornucopias with roasted vegetables and a made-from-scratch vegetable gravy.
We found the instructions for making the cornucopias in the November issue of Vegetarian Times and it ended up being easier than we thought it would be. The hardest part was making the forms out of aluminum foil.
And of course the tiki bar was open for business with Philip tending bar.
I won't be doing anything productive today since the last few weeks have been decorating mayhem. We are taking a break from the apartment stuff to enjoy the weekend.
