As mentioned in my last post on Saturday, I was heading out to the boonies (aka the family cabin) to celebrate Thanksgiving. Games were played, walks were walked, and good food was ate. Of course, over half of the dozen of us who spent time together ended up getting sick (including Mike and I) – Thanksgiving is a time of sharing, no? Hence my absence from the interwebz, though tonight I’ll try to catch up with you all. I was sad to miss a few days of MoFo!
And without further ado, here are a few photos from the lake:
Ahh yes, we went with a Tofurky as a main. We just ended up running out of time to make something, and hey, Tofurkys are damn tasty if I do say so myself. Plus we made awesome homemade mushroom gravy to go with everything – without veggie broth! Just took an onion, some garlic and mushrooms, diced ’em up and cooked them in a good amount of vegan butter (probably 3 tablespoons) until nicely browned. Then we added a tablespoon of flour, cooked it for a minute, then slowly added enough water for a good gravy consistency. Salt, pepper and poultry seasoning was added at the end for flava, and that was that.
Well I’m gonna peace out and rest more – did you guys know iPads are the best ever? Mike has one and it’s enabled me to do pretty much everything in bed the last few days. TV? Movies? Web comics? So freaking handy when you’re incapacitated.
Tomorrow’s my birthday, so maybe I’ll be postin’ about that action. I’m crossing my fingers for perfect health and, perhaps more importantly, I pray that food tastes good tomorrow. Thanks for your patience dudes, and I’ll catch up with you soon!
