Okay okay, first I'll give you the much-expected Thanksgiving noms. Since I'm away at school most of the time (and thus don't know exactly how the kitchen is equipped back home), I decided to play it safe and buy a Tofurky. Really, what I want to make is some sort of tasty baked tofu. Next year, perhaps?

Ze spread.

Image

Tofurky.

Image

Vegified version of an Ina Garten recipe: apple walnut stuffing with mushrooms and reconstituted Craisins (I shiitake you not--this was the best part).

Image

My plate, which includes the Tofurky, stuffing, cornbread (needed SO much more leavening than the recipe suggested), navy bean gravy from VB, cinnamon carrots with caramelized onions, red taters with herbs, and simple corn.

Image

Apple crumble pie with homemade pastry crust. Don't look purdy, but it sure tastes the part.

Image

Then I took my boy to Chicago Diner for a small lunch. We shared a PB cookie dough milkshake, and it was quite possibly the highlight of my trip back home. Yes, I am that sad.

Image

Mozzarella Teese sticks. I heartily approve!

Image

Aaaand a simple side order of scrambled tofu, just to give my boy a taste of it for the first time.

Image

Vegan cupcakes from Molly's.

Image

Mushroom Daiya mozz pizza. We didn't have any other fresh veggies lying around, but at least we had fresh herbs!

Image

Image

Masala dosai from Mysore Woodlands. We didn't have enough moolah for a proper Indian spread. Next time!

Image

And a shot I decided to take at the last minute of my remaining Go Max Go candy bars (Twilight and Jokerz). I enjoyed these, but I don't think I'd eat them very often. It made me feel so naughty. However, I reeeeally want to try making my own chocolate goodies now.

CD's tofu scramble is so good.
I wish I had your Thanksgiving spread, I truly do! The apple pie looks great!

The stuffing was the best part of my T-day spread too. The mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy was a close second, though.

Everything looks great! I need to get back up to Lakeview soon. Molly's and the Diner...yum!

The stuffing sounds and looks amazing! We don't do Thanksgiving or commonly make stuffing (well, separate to actually filling a dead...you get the idea) in Australia, but that stuffing makes me want to start a new Christmas tradition!

Glad to hear it! It's really very simple. Here's what I used and veganized. I'd highly recommend reconstituting some dried cranberries ahead of time. So good!
