Thanksgiving came and went so fast this week! How was your holiday? Did you spend it with family? How was the food? What did you eat?!
We had a fabulous Thanksgiving with our family this year. Everyone else ate the traditional homemade fare, but I took it easy and ordered a catered Thanksgiving vegan meal from Whole Foods. I really didn't want to coordinate vegan dishes with the family, nor did I want to cook a lot this year. My mother and I are the only vegans in the family, and the Whole Foods meal worked great for us. I thought for sure that it wouldn't be enough food, but it was and then some. We were left with plenty of extra food including the one thing that we always have left over: cranberry sauce.

Thanksgiving is in just a few days, y'all. Can you believe it? This month has gone by so fast. I've spent it cooking a ton, and cleaning a bunch in anticipation of Thanksgiving and the following Christmas season. Though in all honesty the "Christmas season" started like the second week of November in our home. We're those people!
It certainly felt like Christmas came early when I got a call from my local vegan grocer (Rabbit Food Grocery) letting me know that their first shipment of the Follow Your Heart VeganEgg had arrived.

Y'all, I threw out my back! Can you believe it? I've never had back pain in my life, but last weekend I started feeling really limited in what I could do without hurting myself. Chores went undone, meals were barely cooked, and writing most certainly didn't happen. Thank God my husband is so caring and supportive. He bought me lots of heat packs, did what chores he had time to do, and brought me countless glasses of water.
My back isn't 100% ok, but it definitely feels much better than it did just a couple of days ago. I was able to do stuff around the house today, and working on my computer is no longer painful. Good thing because I've been waiting to share this recipe for Pot Roasted Tempeh for too long!

Happy November and happy National Pumpkin Scrub day! Just kidding, it's not National Pumpkin Scrub day. I don't think. There's a day for everything now so I wouldn't be surprised. This scrub is fantastic, but not so fantastic that it needs its own day. However, it is much better than the item whose day it actually is today, deviled eggs. If November 2nd has to be a national day of something ridiculous then I vote for this body scrub over eggs. It's exfoliating, it's moisturizing, it's seasonally appropriate, and it's a delightful addition to your morning shower. It's also fat free and cholesterol free as long as you don't eat it.
Please don't eat it.
