Vegetarian Thanksgiving 2011

Happy Post-Thanksgiving!

My family did several different Thanksgiving dinners this year, due to work/travel schedules and locations. One of these was an entirely vegetarian Thanksgiving dinner (!!!) because my cousin, whose family hosted the dinner, is a newly-converted vegetarian.

I made the amazing eggplant cashew nut roast that I make every year, and it was very well-received yet again:

and because my father's weakness is pecan pie, I made my first ever pecan pie as well:
As I expected, the ingredients are pretty much sugar, sugar, and more sugar. With a few pecans on top. Definitely the least healthy thing I ate all weekend.

How was your Thanksgiving?


  1. wow, the pecan pie looks amazing! Was it difficult to make? My holiday was quiet. Went to dinner at Ovelia on Wed night and was surprised that place was hopping even the dy before Thanksgiving!

  2. Sorry, just catching up on replying to comments now... No the pecan pie was surprisingly easy! Just mix a ton of sugar and syrup in a bowl... literally. lol. Laying all the pecans out on the top took a little while but you don't have to do that part if you aren't picky about presentation and it will still taste just as good ;)
