My wife and I love to cook together. This is especially true when we do not have time considerations hanging over the process. This Thanksgiving Day should be fun as it is just the two of us and we have an ambitious menu, a bunch of wine, and all day!
Although not a strict vegetarian, Thanksgiving Day, has become a tradition of going veg at my house. Not only do we believe that it is a great way to say “thanks” to our earth, the whole day has become a giant reminder of just how many animals are slaughtered in order to “nourish” our nation’s population, or to satisfy its gluttonous, medieval, compulsion to dominate over all that walk the earth, depending on how you look at it.
Can’t imagine Turkey Day without Turkey? Well Here is our plan of attack Courtesy of our favorite vegetarian cooking inspiration resource Vegetariantimes.com. Because of alcohol, and because I also love to torcher my detail oriented wife, we won’t likely follow these recipes exactly. Regardless, some version of what is below will be what is on our plates tomorrow and resulting in another tradition we like to call “Dinner nap”.
