My Thanksgiving started with a very shivery 5k walk with my big sister, Brandy, while my nephew ran the whole thing again! Austin & his clan ran ahead as well. I saw tons of old friends and enjoyed talking with my sis the whole way.
Once I got home I (reluctantly) iced my knee and admired Britni's gorgeous decorations.
After showering and changing into more holiday-appropriate clothing, I took pictures of everyone. I was so excited to have all the fam together -- not to mention I had about four sugar-free pies waiting to be consumed by this guy.
First, the lactose & sugar-free blueberry cheesecake.
Silken tofu is the best invention ever (as far as vegan cooking goes at least). All blended in a regular old blender.
Then came the pumpkin pies (I made them two different ways, but I'll show off my fave).
I put this bad boy in the oven looking like this:
Then after writing this blog post, I took it out looking like this..
Woops.. I just did my best to keep the burned parts out of the mix. Here are my ingredient substitutions:
Lastly I made my lactose-free chocolate mousse pie.
Here's all the delicious desserts together
Then once all the eating, eating & more eating was done... Ziggy helped with the dishes.
She's very helpful.
I got to enjoy a second dinner at Austin's family's house, chill by a bonfire at Jessica's and then spent the night on the town with a great friend in the Marines who's just home for the weekend.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know I did.
