What's a Vegetarian to Do?

Admittedly, Thanksgiving has never been my favorite Holiday. I don't need a designated day to be thankful for all that I have and all whom I know. Yes, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. But the reality is, I'm fortunate that I get to do that almost every weekend of the year.

However, now that I am a Vegetarian, I find this holiday to be a total dissappointment.

I've never liked potatoes (except for Kristens Yummy baked fingerlings!). Pies are perhaps my least favorite dessert on the planet...oh wait, I just thought of that Mexican thing that sounds like phlem. (But that's beside the point.)

Anyway... No turkey, no pie, no potatoes. What does that leave for me? I made a spinach lasagna wasn't the best I've ever made. And, sometimes my lasagna is killer, but since I don't follow a recipe, sometimes it's less than stellar. The dog liked this one. At least I'm assuming she did,since she ate two thirds of it out of the pan, the minute I turned my back.

Any menu suggestions from other vegetarians out there? I might need them for Christmas dinner.

Okay. I've decided to consider Thanksgiving the "Gateway Holiday" to the rest of the season. It's the day when I now force my family to start planning Kenzie's birthday party, and to decide when we'll go get the tree. And to figure out where we'll put it.

And, maybe I should start watching football. Atleast that would give me something to look foreward to on the day.

You are so funny. I still love Thanksgiving even though I don't eat meat. Yesterday was a little rough because I did not do the cooking but overall it was still good. The dessert is Flan and it is awesome.
