Happy black friday to you all!
I hope that your thanksgiving was filled with delicious food and special moments with your family. Honestly right now I dont know if I am energized or delirious. After we wrapped up dinner yesterday we started to put out our christmas decorations, and then I hit the sack early so I could be up early for shopping!
Originally I planned on making Portobello mushroom “steaks” but they turned out completely disgusting! 😦 I was so disappointed because they were really expensive and they ended up being inedible. Silly mistake on my part though… I didnt know that the mushrooms would retain water like cra-zay so the underneath was all icky and slimy while the top was dry. Ick. I ended up stuffing a mini pumpkin at the last-minute with a sweet carrot puree.
Overall though I was really happy with everything, my first major raw vegan holiday went over really well. My family was totally curious about my food and lifestyle, and they all enjoyed my cupcakes (I was told they were super delish!)
All thanksgiving recipes will be posted within the next few days!
Oh so good! They were perfectly flavored and had just the right consistency. They tasted even better with some sweet corn mixed in.
I was so proud of how these cupcakes turned out. This was the first time I ever made frosting from scratch before, and I really just threw it together because I was lacking all the ingredients to make any of the recipes that I found. Who knew that having an empty pantry could result in such a delicious dessert.
I didn’t really photograph it well, but it was tasty just the same. A hugh jass marinated salad completed my meal.
Ive got a special post thanksgiving zumba class tonight at 5:30! After that my night will go something like this…
- Tidy up
- Catch up on blogging
- Jam to christmas tunes (it’s officially okay now!)
- Hang out with Earth Mama 🙂
You all know what I ate for thanksgiving, how about you? What did you eat?
