Recapping Thanks(giving)

Welcome back to Monday, everyone! Sorry no blogging over the holiday for me. Taking a break was kind of nice. I checked my email once this whole weekend. Crazy.

Anyway, let me recap my Thanksgiving feast of healthy dishes. On Thursday, Anne and her husband came over and brought some great vegan dishes to share and together we made a vegan, raw pumpkin pie. Here’s our meal:

Garlic Pumpkin Knots from Oh She Glows, by Lori and Anne

They were filled with gluten and love, and tasted better than they appear here.

Green Salad by Anne

Sweet Potato & Yam Mash by Lori

Sweet Baked Sweet Potatoes by Anne

Raw (naturally sweetened) Cranberry Sauce by Anne

Cooked Cranberry Sauce by Anne

Soooooo good.

Cornish Game Hens by Sascha (no turkey 🙁  )

Gluten Free Stuffing by Anne

Full-Fat Gravy by Sascha

Vegan “Gravy” adapted from Eat, Drink, & Be Vegan by Lori

Blurry picture but SO good

There was also wine. Let’s never forget about the wine. And dessert…

Raw(ish) No-Bake, Vegan Pumpkin Pie

Walnut/Almond/Date crust with fresh baked pumpkin/agave/coconut oil/pumpkin pie spices filling
Very fluffy and mousse-like

And Truffles! These guys were super rich and so easy to make. I highly suggest making them… recipe by Alisa Cooks!

Mint Truffles rolled in Cocoa Powder

Chocolate Truffles rolled in Cinnamon Sugar

Chocolate Truffles rolled in Cocoa and Cayenne Powder

I also went home to visit my parents and sister with Sascha (boyfriend) and made an appearance at a local bar.

Good times.

Happy Cyber Monday. Try not to spend too much money today.

What was the best part of your holiday and weekend??
