Jacqueline Quirke. in friend request message write peta veg or something, since i won’t recognize your names. been doin’ this a very long time. i no all the ingredients and the best place to keep updated on them since everyone is always trying to sneak in things i won’t eat. i’ll cook it but i won’t eat it. my guy of 16 yrs. eats poultry and seafood. I DO NOT. it keeps me very creative for reg. dinners and holidays alike.

    @Katelynn: dear Katelynn, don’t give up! With time it will be easier for you to deal with those who are neither vegetarian, nor veggie-friendly, trust me! I turned vegetarian at the age of 5, back in 1983, when people barely knew what “vegetarian” meant (many thought it was an illness!) and had a small choice of alternative dishes. Nowadays at the supermarket you can find many types of veggie dishes that are excellent as substitutes for meat. For example, I buy veggie minced “meat” or veggie chunks and use them instead of chicken/pork in Thai dishes. Or, if you prefer Italian dishes, browse through some recipes and you’ll see how a good part of Italian cuisine is meat- and fish-free! Example: “Melanzane Parmigiana”, that is, Aubergine-lasagne (even meat eaters ADORE them), pasta or gnocchi dishes with mushroom or tomato sauces, or french quiche pies with tofu bacon instead of pig bacon! Or Mexican fajitas with veggie chunks and peppers! Hope I inspired you a little bit… Hugs, Serena
    PS to those who bug you, tell them that soy lowers cholesterol, is highly nutritive and is no dead animal’s carcass! ;) And that vegetarians/vegans don’t get colon cancer! Haaa!

    This was my first Thanksgiving as a vegan. I brought a tofurky, fresh cranberry relish, fresh veggies and homemade vegan veggie dip with me to my family dinner. My sister surprised me by making vegan stuffing and vegan green bean casserole. My dad poked fun of me but the rest of the family was very supportive.

    I have faced this same issue in the past. For that I resort to mock meat (I find that the similarity allows my family to try more and identify with the idea of the food) I know some folks do not like the mock meat so this is just an idea. My family really like smoked tofu guacamole, fresh salsa, garlic/onion mashed potatoes (as an alternative do the mashed butternut squash – yumm!) We have had great success with the stuffed Tofurkey (or similar). Appetizers – Veggie pizza bites with vegan cheese or yummy finger sandwiches with veganaise, fresh spinich/basil, tomatoes and cheese (toasted). My pop is a true meat and potatoes guy and so nothing really tops his list but he never goes hungry =) Best of luck and remember if it tastes good and doesn’t hurt…eat it!

    i had the best meat-free thanksgiving ever! :D

  • Katelynn says:

    i had to suffer through my first thanksgiving as a vegitarian. my parents arent exactly compassionate on how little i could eat, other than desserts. Luckily, i get to spend christmas with my mom, who is more than willing to try and cook something for me. The only problem is that i have to find out what she can cook since we have the rest of our meat eating family over. Any help?
