i also just finished making a couple things to take to thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. we will spend the holiday with danny's family at his mom and dad's house. my mother-in-law spoils us each year with a huge amazing vegan feast! she is so accommodating when it comes to our strictly limited diet, and i am very thankful for that. before i moved out here, i would usually have to make my own tofurky, and eat it by myself, while the rest of my extended family ate the traditional dairy and meat filled holiday meal. so it is really nice to have so many delicious options (thanks vicky)! can you tell i am very excited to eat, haha!?
and i also made a pumpkin "cheesecake". this is one thing that i am really good at baking, i've made it so many times, and it always turns out delicious. my brother-in-law billy (danny's sister's husband) is just about as opposite of vegan as anyone could be, (he is a real steak-and-potatoes kind of guy), and he love, love, loves it! he gets sad when i don't bring it to family get-togethers, haha. i even made him one as a gift, for his past two birthdays. he is going to be very excited tomorrow, haha
before it's goes in the oven
and after it comes out (it needs some soyatoo on top!)
our house smells sooo good right now!
we took our pitbull, lucky dog, to the vet today for his annual exam. we think he has a urinary tract infection, so he has to take an antibiotic. but they took a blood sample, and everything else looks great. he is 11 years old now, and he is starting to slow down a bit, but he is happy and healthy, and has many more years to go. we are thankful for his good health.
