Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving meal! I'd love to hear what you all had for dinner (or breakfast, or dessert...). 


  1. I feel the need to mention that my dad, the guest of honor, was a vegan rock star this weekend! He LOVED all the food and cleared every plate I put in front of him all weekend. He had versions of tempeh, tofu and seitan and loved them all.

    He exclaimed many times how much he loved all the food and how much better he felt by this morning (Saturday, he arrived on Thursday a.m.).

    He would totally go vegan if my mom cooked vegan for him. He's not allowed in the kitchen ;-) XOXO

  2. the feast looks awesome! the gravy on that beautiful roast and the pumpkin pie... yumm! and kudos to your dad! i fed my dad some tempeh when he was visiting in october and he is known to be very picky.. but he loved it!..

  3. Ooohhh! I don't want to forget, next time I think I'll add chopped walnuts or pecans to the stuffing, and maybe some dried cranberries. You could use any stuffing that holds together to stuff this roast guys! Any flavor or style stuffing would be delicious.

    Can't wait to make this again!

  4. Yummy! The roast and the pie look absolutely amazing!

  5. Thanks, Elisabeth! They were both relatively easy to do, the seitan roast is especially fun to make!

    Try it on a down low day :-)
