MoFo 22 Thanksgiving Menu and Stuff

I know blogging is way different than school, but is anyone else cramming for their blog? Or downing loads of coffee and herbal no-dose to turn their daily MoFo in on time? Or is everybody whipping up 5 course dinners and giving us our daily dose of food porn?
Hmmm. There is only one way to find out. I'm going to search out the tight lipped, bad camera, too busy to budge last minute MoFoers so I can get a little dignity back. Be back in a sec.
Took me longer than expected. Sorry I got caught up reading other people's blogs. Truth is I couldn't find any MoFo slackers or even MoFo wannabes. Well there was one vegan girl named Squeeky but I think I'll cut her some slack. They don't have many vegan options in the slammer and she got tired of blogging about gruel.
Anyway, we've got our Thanksgiving meal planned. It'll be me, the hubby, two good friends and our felines.  
Spinach, pear, cranberry and pecan salad with vinaigrette
Larry's famous "cream sheese" and chive biscuits
Stuffed portabello mushrooms
Horseradish mashers & carrot brown gravy                                                             
Marcia's Apple Strudel/vegan whipped cream
 I'm not clear on what the appetizer will be yet. We'll probably just put out some noshables. In the meantime, so we don't fill uptoo much before Thanksgiving we've been eating little plates. Let me tell you ceramic is not always easy to digest, bahahaha.
Above is an example of what I mean by a small plate. Sliced fresh fruit with tofu nuggets. The tofu is crispy on the outside and cooked just right on the inside and filled with lots of B-12 too. It's based on a recipe from "You Won't Believe it's Vegan".You Won't Believe It's Vegan!: 200 Recipes for Simple and Delicious Animal-Free Cuisine
1 block firm tofu drained and pressed and cut into cubes
1/4 C extra virgin olive oil
1 T soy sauce or tamari
1/2 C nooch
2  T 21 Salute

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment and coat with 1 T of olive oil.
Place the cubes in  a medium bowl and port the oil and soy sauce over it and toss it. Sprinkle with dry ingredients and toss again. Spread the cubes on the parchment bake 25 minutes turning once half way through baking time.
These are great in a sandwich, a salad, over grains.
And the book is a favorite of mine. See you tomorrow. Turned in on time without a moment to spare. Phew.


  1. I love your menu for Thanksgiving! I still haven't come up with mine, and if it doesn't happen today, there will not be a store open for my procrastinating rear tomorrow! (Do I qualify for the slacking angle?)

    Happy Thanksgiving - if I don't write tomorrow!

  2. You will never-ever be a slacker in my book! Feel free to utilize the menu!
