(That's my dad.)
Yay! Yesterday was our first ever vegan Thanksgiving potluck! It was a super great time, full of good friends, cute kids and delicious food :) Thank you so much to all our great friends for coming, and to my parents for letting us all invade their house.

I didn't take as many pictures as I originally planned to, because I was having too much fun.

Above is my veggie appetizer pizza, this is always a hit and got gobbled up :) I like it when people like my food.

I also made some hummus, that I served on this cool platter that we got for our wedding last year and hadn't used yet :)
There was so much food!!! It filled up two whole counter tops. Items (from nearest to farthest): potatoes-au-gratin, spicy spicy soup, hubbard squash, gravy, stuffing/dressing and wine :)
On this counter top there is turkey roast (I made this, came out pretty good, not incredible.. I think next time I'd slice it thinner), cheezy potatoes, tuscan cauliflower, cranberry chutney, chickpea tart, mashed potatoes, cornbread biscuits and zucchini muffins.
This is the epic plate I made, absolutely everything was great. I didn't even get to try anything because there was so much food. I've never seen such a vegan feast in my life. There were definitely a bunch of desserts, I ate some vegan rugelach and some peanutbutter and jelly pie. I forgot to take pictures, oops!

Thanksgiving isn't about eating a big ol' turkey, its about spending time with good people sharing good food :)
