People are so good to me. I’m lucky to have great friends. Case in point: Dad is away with Sherry in China, leaving me with a void in my Thanksgiving weekend schedule where a family dinner might otherwise sit. No big deal to me. However, Danie was kind enough to offer a vegan Thanksgiving dinner to me on Sunday night at her mother’s place. It was yummy. I don’t think I’ve ever seen more vegetables on one table. I particularly enjoyed the kale. There was tofurkey, which is more or less unlike turkey, formed into a ball, and filled with stuffing. It’s better than it sounds. I even liked the brussel sprouts, which I had declared unfit for consumption in 1986.
Today was a statutory holiday, but as usual, I didn’t know that last week, so I booked myself an appointment for this morning with a client. Fortunately, he didn’t know it was a statutory holiday either. Neither one of us will become a labour lawyer I guess. Anyway, I did the job, and it was easy.
Tonight, Alisha felt sorry for me not having Thanksgiving dinner too. She brought me a plate of turkey, ham, potatoes, carrots and peas, and a slice of pumpkin pie. Currently I’m eating the turkey and eagerly awaiting the sedative effects of the triptophan sp?) in it to kick in. Last night I learned that triptophan can also prevent dogs from having seizures, so I feel completely protected from canine epilepsy. I may encourage Dad to go away next Thanksgiving too. This could be a really nice tradition. 😛
*hug* I’m glad you could join us it was a lot of fun and i love sharing Vegan holidays so people dont’ think all I eat is salad 😛
and yes my mother cooks everything under the sun and then some but I’m happy to hear brussel sprouts are off the banned list 😛
hey it ate the rest of my comment!
You’re welcome to any of our family things but be warned you come to enough of them you become part of the family 🙂
So Canadian Thanksgiving was this past weekend? What’s the story behind it?
And as for friends……..you can count on a friend here to get wasted!
yay tryptophan! 😀 mmm.. I was so sleeping saturday night….i love thanksgiving 🙂 I got all my eating done early though.. I had a turkey meal at lunch on thursday (with brussel sprouts! 😀 ), and then a family meal saturday at my uncle’s…. and have spent the last 2 days blissfully holed up in my house, watching movies, cleaning, and knitting (oh yeah, and studying.. ;P ) – when my housemates came home they were exhausted/stressed out from to much family time and my brother and I were very mellowed and relaxed. People felt sorry for us not being able to go “home” for the holidays, but I think we got the better deal…
you’re so totaly grateful on Thanksgiving.
Your welcome for turkey dinner at Casa Reid anytime!!
