I always hated typical Thanksgiving food. Having to suffer through meals with the Pennsylvania Dutch side of the family and their bland, boring, bullshit ass food was never fun, and became pretty much unendurable after going vegetarian. It got better after a couple years when my mom would hook it up w/ a tofurkey and corpse-free stuffing, which is edible, but not delicious. Well, the head matriarch has been a few years dead, and so has her senseless repression of flavorful expression (specifically garlic). SO, there are a handful of vegans and vegetarians at the table this year, and I'm thinking if I'm up for it, I'll cook up a whole bunch of appropriately autumnal dishes that aren't wanting for flavor and spice. I have a few ideas. But what's on YOUR menu this year?
