Last year Mom and I went on strike and it blew up in our faces.
I guess we will do the same we do every year
Turkey Breast (there are just 7 of us)
Green Bean Casserole or Broccoli Casserole
and my mom usually gives in and makes sweet potato casserole too.
My Nana used to make the absolute best corn pudding, but we have never put it back in the menu since she passed. I might make a small batch this year.
I cook Thanksgiving and my mom does Christmas. Since my carnivorous family refuses to have tofurkey instead of turkey, and I refuse to spend my holiday with my hand shoved up a turkey ass, I cheat and DH brings a roasted turkey breast from work (and it stays WAAAYYY at the other end of the table lol ) The rest of it is vegan :)
Roasted portobello mushrooms, with spinach and red peppers
My super amazing mashed potatoes
Green beans with dried cranberries and roasted almonds
Quinoa with sweet potatoes and mushrooms (in place of stuffing- not a lot of stuffing fans around here lol)
Homemade vegan biscuits (OMG soooo good)
Pumpkin pie and Chocolate chip bars
Quinoa with sweet potato and mushrooms http://allrecipes.com/recipe/quinoa-with-sweet-potato-and-mushrooms/detail.aspx (go easy on the cayenne- it gets super spicy real quick)
Preheat oven to 450F. Sift together dry ingredients. Add shortening and soy milk and mix gently until just mixed. Spoon into lightly oiled muffin tins (or roll out as proper biscuits if you have the freaking time lol) and bake 12-18 minutes.
Incredible Roasted Portobello
Preheat oven to 425F Clean the mushrooms and rub them down with olive oil. Season them to taste, and top with a good layer of spinach and a few red peppers. Wrap each mushroom in foil and roast in oven for 20ish minutes.
