I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Hope you have a relaxing day full of good food and good company 🙂
Yesterday was full of food prep for today. Psycho Holiday Baker was at it again this year!
Haha. Cute. She made her famous turkey cookies again this year.
I helped with the artistic direction 😉 Meanwhile, I made some vegan sweet potato biscuits and then baked my famous apple pie with the help of Betty Crocker.
I used this recipe from My Vegan Cookbook, and it came out fantastic. No yeast required! Pretty easy ingredients. The only thing I would mention is to make sure you use copious amounts of flour when rolling out because the dough is very sticky.
I also prepped my bourbon spiked vegan truffles (recipe from NY Times Well Blog). This is just the filling with pecans, graham crackers, maple syrup, brown sugar, vanilla, and bourbon. Then, you dip them in vegan chocolate.
We’ll see what they are like today!
Mister Matthew was making some fancy gourmet sandwiches that day.
And Dad cooked a healthy pre-turkey salmon dinner using a spicy Thai chile sauce with basil. It was delicious and nutritous!
You can find a similar recipe here. Just add a fresh basil garnish.
While he cooked us dinner, Psycho Baker and I went to step class to get our pre-turkey workout in.
Watching the Thanksgiving Parade now, then off to Thanksgiving dinner!
