I'm sure that all my non-U.S. readers are thinking "enough with all the Thanksgiving posts!"... but I'm not gonna apologize! So, today's meal is brought to you from the United States!
First I took these cute little friends, 2 from my garden and one from my aunt's garden, and cooked them down into 7 cups of pumpkin puree. Mmmmmmm...
I took some of that pumpkin puree, and transformed it into a beautiful pumpkin pie. I love pumpkin pie!! Just the smells of the pumpkin puree were transporting me to a land of happiness. The recipe I use is from one of my favorite books, Voluptuous Vegan.
I also made a Apple-Pear-Quince Pie! I can't wait to taste this little bug! I used the spiced quince that I made a little while ago, and I really hope it all turns out well. Usually I am such a follow-the-recipe kinda gal, and I winged it on this one! Risky! Exciting!
This year, we are having a much smaller gathering than usual. For various reasons, many of our loved ones are doing other things or are in other places, or are no longer with us. So, instead of the usual 15-20 people... this year it'll only be 7-8 people. Plus, we usually have about6 vegans and a vegetarian, and this year we only have 2 vegans in attendance. Thus, instead of busting out a whole batch of tamales for 2 people, I picked up this Field Roast. It's easy, and very delicious, and gives me plenty of time to walk the dogs and do yoga today.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!
