Thanksgiving with SGI friends =)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I managed to make it to the gym today! I was so happy when I read a sign at the gym the other day that read "Thanksgiving day special hours 7am-12pm". When I saw that sign I said "Yes" really loud. People were staring at me like "Umm weirdo".

My roommate had a big potluck today and a lot of our Buddhist friends came over at about 3pm. I have to admit it is hard being a vegan sometimes in social situations with large amounts of foods. All I can suggest to other vegans is to eat before an event that you know is not going to have any vegan foods. That way your not a winy vegan. I had a pb and j sandwich for lunch after the gym so I was set.

My roommate Debbie and I.
Sharon and her friend and her friend in the back. ( I'm so bad with names!)

Me and Zena.

Todd got home around 5:30 pm. I made a separate thanksgiving meal for Todd and I. Sometimes It seems rude when I make separate food from other people but I also want to prove to people that vegans don't just eat branches and twigs. Lol!

Todd making a super goofy face while eating.
Field roast, mashed potatoes with veg gravy, green beans almondine, stuffing, cranberry sauce.

 -The cinnamon bread roll (veg friendly) was made by Debbie's son . They were so delicious...I may have had 3 or 4 of them.

My goal was to eat just one plate of food and I did! Granted it was a jam packed plate. I'm super stuffed and I had a great thanksgiving.

Anybody else have some thanksgiving adventures?
