And of course, I have my darling little kitty Penny, she is getting a nice treat too. I am making her chicken (from a local organic farm, and no I don't believe cats are meant to be vegan) and brown rice.
Here is my menu:
Homemade Seitan Roast (based on the one from VegWeb)
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Pan-roasted Green Beans with Caramelized Onions
Pumpkin Spice Cake (from the recipe I posted last week, I made one big cupcake and froze it)
Homemade Cranberry Sauce (maybe)
If you don't want to go to all the trouble of making your own turkey alternative like I am, I highly suggestion a Tofurky. I don't know how Turtle Island does it, but their vegetarian roasts are juicy, flavorful, and savory. They are so good, I eat them all year round. If this is your first meat-free holiday season, a Tofurky is a great transition. Plus, you get to break the Jurky wishbone!
I can't wait for Thursday, and I am sure is Penny is excited too (she loves chicken). Lucky her just gets to sleep while I cook it all.
