BEHIND THE SCENES | Turkey Day Treats



The past week and a half has been a hectic one. Between taking care of a sick kitty, trying to plan for Thanksgiving, and what seems like a million other obligations, I've been feeling totally drained! But I wanted to leave you with a few recipes and Thanksgiving dish ideas before I sign off for the holiday later this week.

On Friday I left you a pure veg Thanksgiving main dish option: Mezzi Rigatoni with Mushrooms, Spinach, Garbanzo Beans and Lemon Caper Sauce. This easy and incredibly flavorful pasta dish can serve as a main dish option for vegetarians and vegans, and also an unconventional addition to your Turkey Day table that everyone else can add to their plates and enjoy as well. (I'm actually thinking of making it with angel hair pasta instead of the mezzi rigatoni for my Thanksgiving feast.)

Coming up this week, a super simple Thanksgiving side dish option: Mashed Sweet Potatoes. The upcoming recipe is a veganized version of Martha Stewart's — rich and delicious. These are a great alternative to regular old mashed potatoes and a wonderful new way to incorporate sweet potatoes into your traditional T-Day meal.

And for Thanksgiving Day breakfast? Nothing could be easier than whipping up some sweet Chocolate Chip Muffins. This upcoming recipe is what would be called a "quick" bread, for exactly the reason you'd expect.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend, and I'll catch up with you next week.
