I had a really wonderful trip home to Cleveland visiting family and friends over Thanksgiving. I had two Thanksgivings with two different sides of my family. Mom and I prepared all the gluten-free and vegan dishes, including: pomegranate maple-glazed carrots, cranberry sauce, cornbread, brussels sprouts salad with chickpeas, Angela’s (truly) Best Kale Salad with pecan parmesean, and apple-pear crumble.
This is Rory. I am in love with him. He is the creation of my first best friend (since we were four years old!) and her husband, and he is just a new bright light of my life. This is kind of a thing for me. I’m not a “baby-person.” I don’t think all babies are cute. I have spent most of my life not wanting a baby. But Rory. He is sort of a game-changer. <3
We also ate a ton of amazing food! Collards, cornbread, best sweet potatoes ever, (more) kale salad, great tofu, and stuffing!
We finished the night with a game of Cards Against Humanity and some delicious treats. My mom made us Tasty Yummie’s Salted Chocolate Tart, which was UNREAL GOOD, and I made some quick raw gingerbread date balls too.
How did you celebrate Thanksgiving?
