Happy Tofurkey Day!

photo stolen from here

I've always thought these were beautiful birds, even back in the days when I ate them. Now I just enjoy seeing them out in the wild. I am now on my way home from work. This evening we will be partaking of the holiday dinner with the landladies, Landlady Wendy's father, brother, and sister-in-law, and 6 dogs. Over half the humans will be vegetarian. I suspect none of the dogs are, though there are two I'm not certain about. I shall be baking sweet potato pie - a rare delicacy here in New England - and David will be making a tofu chocolate pie and dressing (I guess once we've eaten it we can call it stuffing). At some point I hope to get in a nap.

Whether you're Amurcan or Furn, celebrate the holiday or not, I hope you all have a wonderful day.

Tofurkey, huh? Even when I was a vegan, I couldn't quite bring myself to trying one of those. :)

Happy, happy Thanksgiving, Mel.

You have completely made this Furn Amurcan's day...I needed that little personal labeling laugh. Here, it's not Thanksgiving, it's just Thursday, and I'm feeling all mopey about it. I always loved Thanksgiving more than Christmas because the only expectation was that you would hang with family and eat too much. French Dude says, "If I say thank you enough, does that mean we can just say the hell with pumpkin pie and go for sushi?"

There's no way around it. I miss my family and I need pie :-)

I hope you enjoyed your day, too. I'm still all warm with the memories of the day.

I have eaten Tofurky, and I liked it. But wow is it expensive!

Hope you had a great day. I'm full of pie, and I'm going to bed.

We have a duo of Faeries in Pa at a place called the Hermitage that keep a flock of heritage breeds as pets. They are both vegetarian but simply adore having turkeys wander around the farm.
