Tofurkey Day '08

I know it's quite belated, but I have been meaning to write about Thanksgiving and somehow, the week has run away from me. But I figured that it's better late than never, eh?

We had such a great T-Day out in Temecula at Brooke and Ryan's (my sister and bro-in-law) house. It seems so seldom that we all get to be in one place, at one time, for a WHOLE day; and it was really nice to just relax, hang out with the kids and family, eat, and not have to worry about work and other tedious tasks for once.

Though I have been a vegetarian for many years, this was my FIRST year preparing a vegan Thanksgiving meal to bring with us to the feast. Steve and I ate strictly vegan goodies all day, while our kiddos are vegetarians and shared Tofurkey with us and then were able to eat most of the other dishes along with the extended family. Our vegan-ized mashed potatoes, stuffing, bread and pies were quite a hit. I think even the omnivores among us would agree. ;)

Below are lots of photos from the day. Those in attendance included:

- me & my fabulous gang
- my sister Brooke, her husband Ryan, and their three kiddos: Devon, Mekenzie & Jordan
- my mom
- my brother, Brad
- my sister, Nicole & two of her four kids (Blake and Damian)

Good times, good times!

Over & Out,
