I'm not sure. I'm be spending it with the in-laws and all of them eat meat so I will be responsible for my own food. I'm considering either making my own veggie loaf, or buying one of those pre made veggie roasts. If I decide to buy a premade veggie roast what kinds would you reccomend?
Almost vegan just cant stop with the bk veggie burgers or subway veggiemax. If you want to exchange any good vegan recipies or workout tips just shoot me a pm. Thanks and be blessed.

When I was in the States a couple of years ago, I made a nut loaf, which everyone loved. We also had green bean casserole and other vegies. I think I also made smoked tofu, or maybe that was at Christmas.

I buy the Tofurky roast filled with stuffing and gravy every year for Thanksgiving or Christmas. I love it! It gives me that traditional holiday eating feeling and I don't have it any other time of year. Before my dad passed he happily ate it even though he was a diehard meat eater (I think it was the smothered in gravy part that made it ok for him). I'm also not much of a cook so just putting something in the oven and baking it fits my lazy style.

This year I am heading to LA to spend Thanksgiving with my mom. I told her I would buy the Tofurkey but she wants to eat out instead so I am researching what vegan restaurants will be open on Thanksgiving day. She's a meat eater but will eat vegan if that's where I take her since she can't drive anymore.

Happy Holidays to all!

My mother, who help found the first health food store in my Midwestern hometown, transformed a recipe from the Betty Crocker Cookbook into a simple custard that could be poured into a pie crust or plain custard cups. I always baked it right in a glass brownie pan and sliced it into squares, then warmed it up and drizzled maple syrup and walnuts over the top. I am raw vegan now but some of you may still enjoy this:

Pumpkin Pie Custard

2 15-ounce cans pumpkin
3 eggs worth of egg substitute
2 T vanilla
3/4 C. brown sugar
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. cloves
1/8 t. salt (opt.)
1/2 C. flour (thickening agent)

Mix together very well and pour into greased 8"x8" pan or pie dish.
Cover lightly with aluminum foil and bake 50-60 minutes or until a knife stuck in the middle comes out clean.

You can bump up the spices if you want or substitute part of the flour with vanilla protein powder. Baking this makes the whole house smell amazing!

My mom made me a cross between an eggplant parm and a veggie casserole, I supplied the Daiya cheese.

She finally learned how to cook vegetables from Rachel Ray. Seasonings! The right amount of oil! And so incredibly tasty! I'm so proud of her. *sniff*
