I truly never would have guessed that we would be hosting Thanksgiving the first year in our apartment, but honestly, it felt perfect and wasn't nearly as overwhelming as I anticipated! Turns out this vegetarian/mostly vegan can cook one heck of a turkey! Dinner, bird included, received 5 star reviews! Personally, my turkey day favorites include brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes (DM me for the recipe to the sweet potato bake pictured below - first time and they were AMAZING), and gluten/dairy free pumpkin pie. Alex absolutely loves charcuterie, so I always leave that part up to him, and he never disappoints - AND he's a happy guy on this very chilly and cozy Friday because we have tons of leftovers for turkey sandwiches with all of the fixings! Also, how cute is my table cloth? - TG for Home Goods the Sunday before the holiday! I had so much fun buying flowers and putting together the floral arrangement to match - so lucky to have a Whole Foods down the road with the most incredible flower selection, no matter what the season!
*Not pictured, but not forgotten: vegan mashed potatoes, homemade cranberry sauce, vegan/gf pumpkin pie and gravy!
Naturally I got so caught up in taking photos of my success in the kitchen that I took 0 photos of my outfit or with Alex and Mookie. Theres always next year! I went for comfy classics for a zero fuss look!
