Last night my cousin and her husband came over for dinner... it was really fun. They just moved to Florida, so it was nice to have a chance to visit with them and hear all their news.
I know this picture doesn't look too exciting... I didn't have any green veggies to offer! But it was a nice tasty meal. I made the Tempeh Meatloaf from Real Food Daily. It takes a little while, but it's mostly just baking time, and I really love the flavor. Also I made roasted butternut squash cubes. Then there was more of the mashed potatoes and gravy. Plus, they brought along some really nice dark bread. Yum!
For dessert we had chocolate pudding. :)
Our family has its big celebration tonight, with a nice big dinner and a fire and all that fun stuff. We are having 18 people, and EIGHT of them are having the veggie option!! How rad is that? The numbers are growing! :) Here is what I will be busy making today, as soon as I am done with this blog entry:
2 big dishes of manicotti
2 VwaV cranberry pear tarts
1 pumpkin pie
panforte (Italian dessert, for Christmas day)
Yum! Happy Christmas celebrations!
