Thanksgiving 2009

Well, Thanksgiving 2009 has come and gone. I hope yours went well and you were able to gather with family and friends. My fiancé and I had a simple dinner, but that is all you need when it is only the two of you.

Thanksgiving 2009 Plate 1

This is the first plate I had yesterday. On it is Celebration Roast with Vegan Brown Gravy (from Lindsay at Happy Herbivore), candied sweet potatoes, potato roll (from Wal-Mart), and some steamed corn. If you have not yet made Lindsey’s gravy, please give it a try. It has very few ingredients and comes together quite quickly and is also quite flavorful. The candied sweet potatoes were simply a roasted sweet potato, candied with some brown sugar and water then drizzled with some marshmallow ice cream topping. Perfect for a serving of one, since they were only for my (my other half won’t eat sweet potatoes).

Thanksgiving 2009 Plate 2

On my second plate, I had another potato roll, mashed potatoes and more of the brown gravy as well as finishing up the last of the Cranberry Waldorf Salad in the refrigerator. After all that, I was way to full for desert; but since I have been eating Lindsay’s Pumpkin Brownies all week don’t feel sorry for me since I have not been deprived of having pumpkin.

Hope you all have a good weekend.


  1. Happy Thanksgiving!! Mmm I wish we got celebration roast over here.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving! No thanksgiving food for us Australians, but it's been fun seeing what everyone else has been eating! Your food looks great, though I can never quite bring myself to stomach the idea of marshmallows and sweet potato... too sweet! One day I am sure I will give a try just to say I have done it. ;)

  3. Thanks, guys. And vegetation, they just started shipping to Canada, so maybe Australia one day.
