Turkey Day is Near...

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, and this year will be different from most. Baby E will be celebrating his first Turkey Day at home, and we have invited our parents over for lunch. We usually spend the day with H's extended family, but Baby E's sleep schedule doesn't allow us to go out as a family in the evenings (he goes to bed at 6pm). I hope his family will understand.

I have a fairly simple meal planned, which consists of the following:

Alton Brown's Turkey
Vegan Mashed Potatoes
Roasted Carrots & Cauliflower
Green Beans
Cranberry Sauce
Pillsbury Crescent Rolls

Yup that's pretty simple. H has made the turkey for the past 3 years, and hopefully he can recreate the awesomeness again this year. We're making mashed potatoes with Earth Balance butter & almond milk, which is actually really yummy. I have to stick to a wheat free vegan diet thanks to Baby E's allergies. I'm not making anything complicated because time does not allow for it. It is lunch after all, and that means early morning cooking.

Turkey at Home
mmm... turkey
Hoping this Turkey Day will be a very memorable one this year with Baby E. I plan on watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade with him in the morning. :) Maybe he can help us out in the kitchen too.

Oh and here is a picture of Baby E to make this post worthy of awesomeness. Yay!
