It started. A few weeks ago the latest copy of VegNews magazine arrived – the infamous holiday issue with pages and pages of Thanksgiving recipes. Then Pinterest turned into a veritable holiday spread. All of the food blogs are talking about sweet potatoes and pies. I can’t get enough of it.
Unfortunately on Thanksgiving Day we’ll be traipsing around Chichen Itza while on our honeymoon. The day after is my birthday and I hope to spend it at the swim up bar or just with my Kindle. And maybe with some cake. The point being that since we’ll be so far away from our family, our Thanksgiving dinner will be happening a week after the official day. We have a family dinner planned at my brother’s house and I’m already overwhelmed with the options of what to make.
Of course the ‘chicken’ cutlets will be on the menu — but aside from that, I’m at a loss. I saw VegNews‘ recipe for a Pumpkin Parsnip Lasagna in the holiday issue and feel enthralled. In a season that is all about the food, how do you decide what makes the menu? What about the things that you cut from it – do you relegate those to other occasions just so that you can still enjoy them?
