Thanksgiving Menu 2013

My seitan roast from 2011
I am SO excited for this Thanksgiving. Not only do I have so much to be thankful for, but this pregnant mama has been craving stuffing and mashed potatoes for weeks now.

Michael got me a job at his work a few weeks ago, which is going very well. Tomorrow we are having a company Thanksgiving Potluck. I am bring a seitan roast with veggies, similar to the one I made two years ago. However, since I have to be at work at 8 AM and the party is at 3PM, I decided to try making it in a crockpot in the break room. It will be pretty much the same recipe, just minus baking in the oven. I will post how it went tomorrow.

For actual Thanksgiving we are going to Michael's Brother-in-law's Mom's (that's confusing to type out...) house in Tracy. It's about an hour car ride, so I have some logistical issues. I want potatoes, stuffing, baked tofu, and veggies. But, I don't want to have 5 dishes with me in the car. Then I would have to heat all those dishes back up when I get there. Too big of a hassle. Then I realized  I could make a casserole-like thing with all those layers. It would be easy to transport and heat back up.

I am thinking of doing the bottom layer baked tofu, then stuffing with cranberries, and the top layer mashed potatoes. I will post the recipe later. Until then, check out all my other holiday recipes!
