Of Time and Tofurky

Posted on 20 November 2012

Over the weekend, I made kale chips, cooked turnips, and pulled dozens of Brussels sprouts off the stalk. After months of travel and stress, this quality time spent with farm-fresh veggies — plus all the cat-couch time, and reading The Age of Miracles, and watching more episodes of Breaking Bad than I care to admit — indicates that things are, at long last, slowing down for me. (Sort of. We won’t get into Thanksgiving.)

On Friday, it looks like I’ll be at Loganberry Books from 2-4pm for a Rust Belt Chic signing. I think we all know I’ll also be stopping by the nearby Bazaar Bizarre, a local indie craft show. I also hope, at some point this weekend, to walk through a glass room full of purple balloons. More later.

For now, I wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving. To put you in the spirit (read: to anticipate an event that will surely lead to sobbing), why not read all about The Turkey Wish? Or ditch the tired Turdurken concept and instead dazzle your guests with a Mermuffin? Also, if any fellow vegetarians out there make this or this, please let me know how it goes. See you next week.

    A glass room of purple balloons . . . Photos, please!

    We don’t tofurkey here (I prefer my tofu “ma po”) but my MIL if going to make her incredible Lentil Stew tomorrow night for my folks, who are at this moment driving up to visit us. If there are leftovers (ha!), I’d gladly swap the bird for a bowl.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I’m totally off the vegetarian rails this year. Roast chicken. (Free range! Organic! she yells defensively.)

    Lots of love to you. Happy Thanksgiving!
