This thanksgiving I spent with my family, and it was entirely vegan except for a small turkey breast. He claimed vegan food “tastes like sawdust and cardboard.” It made us all laugh. Especially when he in-haled the Brussels sprouts and potatoes.
My wife brought us home a surprise last night. On her way home, she stopped at Whole Foods and bought some tastiness from the deli.
We split the beet burger (upper right). It was ok. She liked it a lot more than I did. The texture was nice, but the flavor didn’t appeal to me. In the upper left, was the wild rice and cranberry roast. The pastry crust was awesome as was the “meat”. The cranberry/wild rice middle was just ok; I thought a bit of a let down with how awesome the crust was. The roasted harvest vegetables were awesome. She asked the girl for extra Brussels sprouts too. yum. The veggies were my favorite from this takeout expedition.
After dinner we dove into one of the FOUR vegan pumpkin pies she bought. Apparently, there were only five left, so she bought four. LOL. Into the freezer they go. The pie was tasty.
