What are we doing for ThanksLiving this year?

This is for new ideas, links, etc...

This is always a hot topic around this time, along with the difficult family scenarios... thankfully, at almost 3 years vegan my family doesn't give me crap cause it is just pointless since my bro, sis, and gma are pretty much on board too...

I am doing this: http://vegan.com/recipes/vegan-thanksgiving-recipes-2009-a-feast-by-robin-robertson/

I think the whole sch-bang... hope it's legit it seems easy enough though i might double the wellingtons and maybe add some maple roasted brussels as well

Yo hh, I think a steel mixing bowl would be fine. I've put my steel pots in the oven with no harm done.

I NOW HAVE A PLAN FOR THANKSGIVING. It goes as a such
cornbread (TJs mix)
cranberry relish (RFD cookbook)
salisbury seitan (RFD)
gravy (RFD, both the golden and mushroom type)
roasted yukon potatoes
roasted butternut squash with roasted garlic and tastiness
stuffing (vegan table)
green beans

^most of that's staying here, since my sister is doing thanksgiving this year. but i'm bringing some of the salisbury seitan there, since my brother & mom like it. I'm actually making 4lb (!) of it, because there's them and then J also loves it, and I'm gonna STOP THEM ALL FROM ASKING ABOUT IT ALL THE TIME OMG

no plans on dessert, but it shouldn't be a problem 'cause i make sweets like i want diabetes.

... maybe apple coffee cake from vegan diner. or something. no pie plans. i feel silly making pie, considering i fully expect VPITS for xmas ;) which means i'll be making pie for the next... year

A bowl should be fine. I put a stainless steel pot in the oven once and the handle came off...I guess the solder let go.

I want to make a seitan roast or fake meatloaf of some kind. What do y'all recommend? I used to make the Thanksgiving MeatLoaf from this site a lot, but I want something more like a tofurkey (but not the tofu turkey from this site :P)

Have you tried BCG's Soy-Seitan roast?  That's what we usually make.

I was looking at that and the one on VeganDad. I've not made either recipe.

A few Thanksgivings ago it seems like everyone was making the BCG one.  It's pretty good.  You need a kitchen aid and it gets a workout.

I love that you ate just as many desserts as you did savory dishes!

My menu changed. Now it is:

Salisbury seitan (RFD)
Mini mushroom seitan sausages (I played around with Isa's recipe that I posted earlier)
caramelized butternut chestnut roast (Vcon)
simple green beans
salad with pomegranate, caramelized pecans, sliced roasted brussels
Sunny corn muffins (Vwav) with fresh cranberries & lemon glaze
Pumpkin pie
Boston Cream Cake Pie (Vpits)

The boston cream pie smelt amazing when I was making it. I can't wait for 4 hours from now!

We had:

Seitan, cornbread, apple and roasted corn stuffing inside of a couple of yummy sweet pumpkins
Mashed potatoes
Cremini-garlic gravy
Roasted balsamic veggies
Steamed green beans
Seven spice cranberry sauce
Spinach, pear, avocado and pecan salad
Homemade whole wheat baguettes
Pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and vanilla bean ice cream

The omnis had their turkey, gravy, pies, etc, present at our dinner as well, but it really does make me smile that my family gathering of 30-ish eats a Thanksgiving dinner that is probably 75% vegan without even realizing it, deep down in the heart of Texas.

It was definitely a non-vegan event, but here's the vegan plate.  My sister had made vegan sweet potatoes as well that I ate later...she mashed up canned pineapple, sweet potatoes and added some molasses.  I had Celebration loaf, mashed potatoes, stuffing made with veggie broth, corn relish, cnranberry relish, artichoke relish, carrots, and a tomato-broccoli thing.  Very nice.

Most importantly I had a great time with my sister, her daughter and the kids.  We played board games and laughed our asses off.
