Pumpkin Season Begins

We began our official Pumpkin Season ’09 last night. Krista baked pumpkin chocolate chip cookies (not vegan) for dessert. It was three star recipe in our household, but the reviewers on the food network love it (five stars!). It is kind of puffy and a little too cake-y for our tastes, but that’s a common side effect of baking with pumpkin puree. Near the end, our oven hit its stride & the final few batches were a little under done & more delicious. However, even mediocre pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are awesome. Pumpkin & chocolate are a terribly underrated combination.

Our First Thanksgiving

Our first Thanksgiving together as a little family was delightful. Yes, I know I am posting about it a month late, but we have been busy with holiday cheer, seventh grade, and various projects. Krista had to work on t-giving, so we stayed home and cooked our brains out, ate really early, and then sat around in a tofurkey coma for the evening. Here’s a mosaic picture of our Thanksgiving food.

middle LtoR Chicken-fried seitan; biscuits in a basket; roasted green beans
bottom LtoR Candied yams; mimosas for the mamas; Apple Stuffing!

Yes, everything was entirely deliciously finger-licking vegan! Hope your Thanksgiving was good, too.
