First of all, I'd like to suggest that you check out my original Thanksgiving blog. I haven't re-tested the links, so I can't say for sure that they all work, but most likely the majority do. And there are some great ideas there!
Additionally, I mentioned the Unturkey. I've since found a video that shows how to make it (the print recipe IS confusing...).
To those who eat meat and read my blog: I'm sorry, I searched for turkey coupons for nearly an hour and could only find ones for slices, burgers, etc.
If you REALLY want to get creative, here's a video for a "Tof*cken" (a meatless Turducken). Warning: Strong language! And if you want a meatless Turducken that's a little less labour-intensive, try this one using store-bought mock meats. And if that's not your style, there's the Vegducken (a zucchini inside of an eggplant inside of a butternut squash).
The Gentle Chef has a PDF of Holiday Recipes that you can download for FREE. It has recipes for "turk'y", "ham", "porq", and "roast beaf" (those are his spellings). But also soup and salad, dressing, sides, desserts, and even (though we're getting ahead of ourselves here) nog! I tried the "turk'y", cutting the recipe in half and making only minor substitutions (primarily, I used my preferred simmering broth instead of his homemade vegetable stock). It had an amazing texture, looked good (though not like the book), but didn't have enough flavour for me. Still, most people seem to like it. So, I'd suggest giving it a shot (ahead of time) and then adapting as desired. I haven't tried any of the others, but I've heard the "ham" is great.
Here are "60 Vegetarian Thanksgiving Recipes" from Taste of Home. Please note: I have not checked all the links, so if you come across marshmallows, animal broth, etc, please substitute. I've mentioned subs in previous entries (especially Homemade Cooking Basics).
And "41 Delicious Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes ".
Somehow, I missed a Thanksgiving staple in my first post! Can you believe it? Well, here's a recipe for baked macaroni and cheese. And a Vegan version that doesn't rely on store-bought "cheese" substitutes.
Though I mentioned two pies in my earlier post, here's an interesting idea for a "Four-Flavor Sheet Pan Pie". Just double-check the ingredients in your dough, as many brands contain lard!
When we think of Thanksgiving, we focus on food. But why not make your home festive? Here are "40 Festive and Cozy Ideas for Thanksgiving Decorations"! And "35 Ideas for Easy Thanksgiving Decorating".
Well, that's all for now. I hope you enjoyed reading this blog post, and have found something useful! Until next time....
