"Mystery dessert" ended up being pumpkin pie and maple cinnamon ice cream. The whole menu was vegan. I felt exceedingly thankful for that.

The maple cinnamon ice cream sounds lovely. How nice of your brother to come up with a vegan meal. Nobody does it for me.

He was vegetarian for a few years in his early 20s. Nowadays he is Omni but eats a whole food diet, mostly organic. So he gets it. He has been known to cook vegan recipes at home, just because the recipe sounds good, vegan or not. Both he and my mother agreed nothing was lacking due to the absence of meat.

So what are people making? I always enjoy Thanksgiving in a voyeuristic sort of way, watching people cook meals for a holiday I do not have.

Yes! The vegan groups here, and the animal sanctuary have Thanksliving events! The sanctuary uses it in part as a fundraiser, and the meet-up groups have potlucks on other days, I guess in part because they know people will spend Thanksgiving day with family. I keep meaning to participate but haven't yet

There's a Thanksliving get-together I could get to, but it's a ways away. My sister lives in a place that's even harder to get to for me. I'm conflicted.

And one more pre-bake shot for @Freesia ... she wants to see pics.... ;)

I took one more on my ancient phone so I could send it to Jer... and they're always more colorful before the cook (different lighting, too)....
