Vegan Thanksgiving

I had my first "Tofurkey" tonight and it was rather yummy actually! After working in the morning (which was quite fantastic) I came home and helped make a delicious all-vegan Thanksgiving meal with my two roommates. It was so good--tofurkey, sweet potato casserole (with toasted macadamia nuts on top), green beans, stuffing (that I made, believe it or not), cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and salad. To finish it all off, Jen had a piece of her own delicious vegan pumpkin pie, while Juan and I shared our berry pie--he and I are not pumpkin pie eaters. I know, I know...we're weird and strange and somehow un-American or something. But I guess that's okay for him since he's not American anyway!

Off to bed after a nice relaxing bath...this has been one of the best Thanksgivings ever. Not to sound cold-hearted or unappreciative, but no family, no stress, no drama....purely divine! And I felt for the first time in a long time that I was with people on this holiday who genuinely wanted to be with me. Is there a greater feeling? I think not.
