I was determined to keep this year's Thanksgiving meal modest since I was only cooking for me and my husband, but it ended up being a feast big enough to serve 8. Oh well, now I won't have to cook for the next week.  Pictured are mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy, stir-fried yams with cayenne and garlic, stuffed tofu, wine-braised green beans and crimini mushrooms, and walnut and lentil dressing.  We also had cranberry sauce from a can, which I for some reason consider a Thanksgiving essential, and later we'll enjoy this gorgeous apple cranberry pie that my husband made:

I'll be posting some of the recipes from this dinner over the next few days.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, this meal was Jasper-approved, though at first he was skeptical about whether he was allowed to eat it:


  1. Oh my gosh your dog is do cute! And the food looks great too of course. I made a big feast as well, even thought it's just us two. But I love to eat leftovers, so I go for it!

  2. Thanks Kristen. I enjoyed the cute dog photos on your site, too.
