I can’t believe how quickly Thanksgiving snuck up this year. It’s always nice to have a little reminder each year to be grateful for what you have and sit down to share a meal with those you care about. It’s really easy for me to over think this holiday and become critical of its historical roots, but I’ll try to avoid getting into that here and just focus on gratitude and the fact that it seems Thanksgiving is the least commercialized of major holidays—No gifts, just food, family & friends (I really think there should be a special holiday for Friends Thanksgiving—No family obligations, just time shared with your close friends.
Anywho, I just wanted to pop on the blog this morning and thank everyone who reads this! I never thought I’d actually get a “following” online, so I am grateful for each one of you. Now, I’ll be off to my in-laws house for our first ever Vegan Thanksgiving complete with lentil loaf & mushroom gravy, chili maple sweet potatoes, mashed taters, stuffing-stuffed apples, green bean casserole and the above pictured apple pie. Look for recipes & pictures soon!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
