Every year my birthday either falls on or close to Thanksgiving. However, even before I became a vegan, I never really loved Thanksgiving food. I remember my mom making me spaghetti, while the rest of the family enjoyed in all the traditional dishes… very coincidental seeing as though I’m a Thanksgiving baby…

So you’re thinking, what about all the vegan holiday dishes- yay, still not a huge fan. I definitely don’t pass up the Brussels sprouts or green beans, but I’m not big on stuffing, tofurkies, or anything crazy. Above are some of the recipes more up my alley =)

Although I’m not overly excited about the food, I have loved the tradition of sharing the holiday spirit with birthday festivities. Family time, vino, birthday cake, and football- sounds good to me!

What are some of your Thanksgiving traditions?
