The day after finds me happily sampling leftovers from yesterday’s feast, which took place courtesy of my brother D and sister-in-law N. If this had been my Thanksgiving board of fare 20 years ago, I wouldn’t have thought anything was different other than the deliciousness of every last course. But in fact, this was a vegetarian feast.

They’ve come a long way over the years in preparing fake meats, as attested by both the tofurkey and the veggie meatloaf; in both cases, I went back for seconds. Other dishes on display here include corn pudding, sweet potatoes, dressing, the best collard greens I’ve ever had, green beans, vegan mac & cheese, mashed cauliflower, cranberry sauce, vegetarian jello, and rolls. Not shown: the sweet potato pie, the bread pudding, and the fine folks with whom I shared the day.

After all of that, I did not eat again for about 14 hours, which may not be a long time for you, but it certainly is for me. There is yet another family gathering in the offing at the home of my sister E and brother-in-law J. If I am able to type afterwards, I may report back.

Heartiest thanks once again to D&N for their hospitality and generosity! I hope everyone reading this had a warm place, a warm meal, and warm people on their holiday.
