Filler

I have lots of issues with my house right now, mainly electrical, and workers I expected this morning have not yet arrived. I have no lighting in my kitchen. I was hoping today would be sunny so I could make food and take pictures, but it’s not. So here’s some this-and-that until Monday evening when I will post what I hope will be our most excellent vegan Thanksgiving dinner, and hopefully not prepared in the dark!

I have one food pic of some lovely baked veggies.


I was honored to be asked to give an interview with Vegan Nutritionista, Cathleen Woods. She has a wonderful website full of information on veganism, including recipes and links. She already conducted interviews with the fabulous cookbook author Dreena Burton and the fabulous FatFree Vegan, Susan Voisin. Needless to say I was quite thrilled to be asked to follow those two. I learned that I am not nearly as eloquent or knowledgeable as Dreena or Susan, but I am enjoying more and more any opportunities that come my way to promote a healthy vegan diet. If you would like to read the interviews, mine is here. Dreena’s is here, and Susan’s is here. And don’t forget to check out the rest of Cathleen’s site!

I’m supposed to do a 7 Things About Me meme, but I’m kind of in a bad mood right now and all I can think of is stuff that bugs me. So I better hold off on that for a while. See you Monday!

Congrats on the interview! (And sorry about the house). Can't wait to read it. :)

Hope you have a fabulous Thanksgiving! (I must be right out of it--I thought Thanksgiving was the 27th? I guess most people will be celebrating on the weekend, though!). :)

I live in an old house so I identify with your electrical problems.

You are a master at baked veggies — they are always so beautiful.

Funny you should mention the meme. I'm supposed to do that too, and I was thinking of passing it along to you. Oh well, guess I won't do that.

Good luck with your celebration, I know it will be delicious!

How cool would it be to make a new VEGAN Thanksgiving? We could declare it the fourth Saturday of the year.
