With Thanksgiving a week away, I'll openly admit that I don't have any desire to cook a vegan feast this year. Every year I'm less enthused - I'm not into holidays as it is, I live alone, and I'm going to my dear friend Michelle's of The Spice Must Flow for a vegan Thanksgiving style potluck soon anyway.
And I helped teach Try Vegan PDX's Cooking Vegan for the Holidays class last weekend, which was a blast and gave me a chance to break out my obligatory Sweet Potato Pie Casserole and associated jokes for the year. Chelsea of Flavorvegan was magnificent and I appreciate all her help in talking me through it!
But as for me on Tday, I'm likely going to settle in with take out and my cats and not cook! Take that, America.
But if you're relentlessly curious to see what I have cooked in the past - check out my posts from the past two Tdays, featuring squirrel shaped biscuits, apple cranberry crumb pie, apple cider soaked tofurkey (never again) and more:

Here are some shots by Chris (here's his flickr for more) of Try Vegan PDX from the cooking class.....Thanks for the shots!

Pecan overload! Group prep stations.
