I am seriously burned out right now. I haven't finished editing the show yet, so that's coming tomorrow. Sorry for the lack of commenting lately. I promise I'm going to catch up with blogs super soon. I have Thanksgiving on the brain and I won't be thinking of anything else until I am chewing on some pumpkin cheesecake on Thursday. So, this post is really about the prep work I'm doing. Since I'm a fan of lists, this will be in listy format.
thaw vegan turkey
chop vegetables and bread
make Viva Vegan chorizo
|vegetables/bread for stuffing, onions for collards and onions/poblano for maque choux|
marinate vegan turkey
make 4 cups vegetable broth
bake sweet potatoes
bake cornbread for stuffing
|the marinade is Jess' method: sparkling cider, garlic, rosemary, and I added tamari|
prep mac n cheese, stuffing, and sweet potatoes up to baking point
make maque choux
prep deviled tofu
make desserts (apple bundt and pumpkin cheesecake)
make cranberry sauce
cook vegan turkey
bake sweet potatoes, mac n cheese, and stuffing
make mashed potatoes and gravy
eat and fight "the -itis"
I'm sorta surprised I've kept on track. I usually have the best intentions but end up cooking for 5 hours on the actual day. This is going to be one speedy Thanksgiving!
How are your Thanksgiving plans coming along?
