Okay, so to be honest, my Thanksgiving went better than I expected. Much better. It was my first one as a vegan (2 months and going strong!) and my lovely sister felt the need to continously remind me that her friend almost puked when she tried eating tofurkey. Needless to say, between that and my family teasing me about my diet, I was weary. My NJ cousin called that afternoon and the first thing out of his mouth was 'EAT THE DAMN TURKEY!"
My friend Angela was in town and spent the afternoon with us and it also happened to be her birthday so I 'forced' her to make raw pumpkin pie brownies with me. haha
Fastforward to dinner.
My plate consisted of tofurkey and gravy, mashed potatoes (using almond milk and vegan butter), dank mushroom risotto, apple buttternut squash soup and balsamic brusselsprouts. Raw pumpkin pie brownies for dessert.
As we sit down to eat, I latel a spoonful of my vegan gravy over my stuffed tofurkey, take a deep breath and pray for no dry heaving...and to my delight it was fucking amazing!
Turns out my tofurkey was the fan favorite that night, to the point that my family was eating my tofurkey over the actual turkey and we ended up throwing our turkey in the canal behind our house. Lol go figure
So for anyone out there who's an experimental eater, I would highly suggest tofurkey (the green box). It's delicious, healthy and super high in protein. Another yummy mock meat is Tofurky brand vegan Italian sausage.
Anyways, enough about food. I got some exciting news!
A few days after Thanksgiving I received shoutouts on Instagram from my favorite viners, Brittany Furlan and Simone Shepard! Here's pics...hell yes I document these moments! :)
Recently posted a drawing of Tyler Oakley on Instagram (gay YouTuber) hoping for a shoutout since he's always recognizing artists who draw him but no luck so far. Staying optimistic though!
My work is being exhibited in a resturant (owned by two gay men) the third week of December and than my brother and I embark on a roadtrip to Arizona a day or two after Christmas! Eeeeek!
Have a wonderful day everyone!
Tune of the day to get you in the holiday spirit:
