that is the only way TURKEY is coming into this house...


(stunningly fun and beautiful bowl by Gary Rith)
It is like people who practice alternative s3x lives:  everybody else wants to know how they do it, what they do and when they do it in the privacy of their own homes?

Thanksgiving in a vegan household:  what k!nky sh!t are we getting into?

AH hA!  Well, I delight in SHOCKING the relatives with our non-conformist ways. Tofurkey is OK, but it is really quite salty and I don't buy it.
Breakfast?  My first attempt at making a chocolate pie (see below!).  It turned out wonderfully, but next time I need to sneak in a layer of peanut butter and call it a "peanut butter cup pie".  BRILLIANT.
Lunch?  Broiled beets and carrots with mashed potato and white beans to back up all that color.
Dinner???? Spinach (with potato and mushroom) calzones!!!!
There will be a pumpkin pie too, somewhere along the way....and probably a VERY tasty pinot grigio and of course, at noon, my old Boston radio station WXRV radio plays our yearly Thanksgiving favorite by Arlo Guthrie, Alice's restaurant....

this is where you say what you are grateful for:  Grateful for good health, wonderful wife, awesome house, the best pets and really, the very best career making pots everyday, so much to be thankful for. Hope you are doing well today too!

Oh you just cracked my Memory Code. When we lived in MA we used to listen to that station on the way to Thanksgiving dinner!

I missed out on hearing Alice's restaurant this year. But I think our cats had the same friskies as Spike. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.
