I could say a lot about the loveliness that was my trip home to Cleveland, but this is a food blog, so let’s get right to the menu.
On Thursday, we celebrate with two sides of the family. The second meal was prepared almost entirely by me, Mike, and my mom. My Aunt Lorri made the turkey, and my Uncle Tom made some non-vegan mashed potatoes, but everything else was vegan.
On Saturday, I went to my 10th (!) annual Vegan Thanksgiving that I share with some very dear friends. These are our hosts, Brian and Kimberly:
This is what we ate:
More spicy greens, roasted butternut squash, stuffed mushrooms, amazing pomegranate salad with tangy homemade dressing, Rochelle’s famous sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, and (unpictured) homemade bread. This is Todd, the bread maker:
It was a beautiful night. Amazing friends, amazing food….These things create the most special kinds of nights, don’t you think?
I hope you had a very special holiday weekend. <3
