Posts Tagged ‘vegan Thanksgiving menu’

At long last, we have the menu planned. I have to qualify this and say that I’m trying to practice flexibility and not get all Martha about it. That makes me crazy and then I don’t enjoy myself. So, with that said, let’s call this the preliminary menu, subject to change without notice.

As I said in a previous post, this Thanksgiving will be attended by:

  • A diabetic vegan
  • A celiac
  • Another person with food issues, and
  • The Man, who hates mushrooms.

Fortunately, I still have a sense of humor and I love to cook, so for me, it’s fun. It also makes for the setup to a great joke: A diabetic vegan, a celiac, and a mushroom-hater walk into a bar… Get some quince liqueur into me and I’ll be the life of the party.


  • Flax-sunflower-sesame crackers (these are drying in my new oven right this second–I’m using the Drying feature for the first time, very exciting!)
  • Olives (canned black from Lindsay, CA, a family tradition)
  • Marinated store-bought vegetables of some kind (Martha is contained)

Main Courses


All of this will be accompanied with French reds and quince and apricot liqueur cocktails. Dinner will be followed by a long nap.
