I figure, though, that if I want any Thanksgiving food, I'm probably going to have to cook it myself. Between the country club (I still love you very much, dad's side of family!) and the deep-fried turkey (I didn't know people actually did that...), the pickings are going to be mighty slim.
I'm hoping to stop at a grocery store on the way from the airport tomorrow, though, to pick up just a few things so I can have a proper - if minimalist - Thanksgiving meal.
Mashed Potatoes with Mushroom Gravy (as posted on the PPK)
Roasted Broccoli or Roasted Brussels Sprouts (whichever looks better)
Some Sort of Faux Turkey (I've never had one! I need to find the tiniest...)
Sweet Potato Casserole (the one on fat free vegan looks really good)
Ingredients I would have to buy in NC:
yukon gold - 3lb
yellow onion - 1
cremini mushrooms - 16oz
sweet potatos - 4-6
unsweetened soy/almond milk
all purpose flour
(no nutmeg, I am a hater)
I'm willing to go without Sweet Potato Casserole, but it'd be nice to be able to have a dish to share with everyone else (and dessert, dessert is important).
As far as food today goes, I'm kinda boring. I had some soy yogurt and (way out of season) fruit from whole foods, and it was delicious?
I never eat a lot of fresh berries, because they're so expensive - It's always frozen for me. But I figured I'd treat myself tonight, and had some berries and soy yogurt. Even though the picture's kinda ugly, it tasted wonderful (because... berries. and yogurt. win allatimes.)
Also, everyone: watch Firefly! It's like a western, but in SPACE. And with lots of nonwestern elements. It's really, really awesome. I watched four hours of it last night.
