some of you have been asking about my slippers...

I was like, without consulting anybody,
"the heck with pumpkin pie! I want chocolate cake for Thanksgiving!" and you will recall that I recently made us a small yellow cake stand....and here they are together...its a pretty big, badass cake for a small cake stand, wouldn't you agree? Vegan, no eggs or butter, just chocolate, chocolate, chocolate as far as the eye can see. I am glad the wife has a big appetite because otherwise I wouldn't know what to do with it (the wife also feels about chocolate the way I feel about peanut butter :) Based on this recipe.

Yes, we do some untraditional things for our holidays, it is the anarcho-punk way. I like to make cranberry apple crisp, and we shall have some for breakfast.....I had a picture of last night's sweet potato burritos but it was blurry---another twist on traditional Thanksgiving foods. We are making cashew stuffed jalapenos for Thanksgiving dinners...which is probably as far from turkey as you can get :)
In other news, many of you will know about the secret of the slippers. I will not say any more, except to show my collection here--nearly 20 years ago I asked the wife to turn my pair of grey slippers into mice, and then about 12 years ago I asked her to turn my red slippers into dogs. She is pretty handy with a needle :)

The slippers are cool and the desserts look delicious!!! I'm going to forward your cake recipe to a friend who is also having a vegan thanksgiving.

I never felt it necessary to have certain foods for certain holidays/times of the year. Eat what you want, when you want. Cashew stuffed jalapenos sound like a delicious addition to Thanksgiving. That being said, I am going to go eat turkey and sweet potatoes, then play football.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and Maud and of course the dogs and cat. Thanksgiving to me isn't just the food..its the nice feeling that comes from stopping to reflect. However I would LOVE a piece of chocolate cake! The slippers are amazing!
