Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!
Any SouthPark fans? There is an episode where one of the characters rescues this little Turkey and calls it Gobbles. Although the entire episode isn’t “feel-good”, I thought it was cute that they rescued this little guy.
We originally had plans for dinner – some friends had invited us over to celebrate the Canadian occasion California style. Alas, they decided to go camping a little last minute. I was bummed as I didn’t have time to figure out a plan to have a get together, so we just had a nice, intimate dinner as a family.
Terry surprised me with this super cute card!
We had some pretty fall flowers as our centre piece.
I originally was disappointed that my energy levels found the thought of making a big meal daunting. But having only made two dishes made us not feel over stuffed.
I made my Wild Rice, Spinach & Tempeh Bacon Squash and Fat Free Vegan’s Best Green Bean Casserole (this is no joke – it really is the best!). I had planned to stuff my squash back into the shells… but scooping the flesh out proved more difficult than usual…
Poor squash never saw it coming haha.
Sunny even got a special meal. Did you know they make special vegan canned dog food?
It turned out to be a really nice meal.
Oooh and we had dessert! I made this Raw Chocolate Chip Slice. zomg… so good!!!! It’s perfect for 2 people – it fills a 4-inch pan. We somehow managed to only eat half so we get the rest tonight!
Having a nice, relaxing day allowed for extra cuddle time and belly rubs for Sunny too.
I hope you’re having a great weekend =)
If you celebrated this weekend, what did you have?
