Although I have been vegetarian for 28 years and vegan for two, I always have accommodated the meat eaters and served turkey for Thanksgiving. This year I've decided to make a stand and omit all animal products from this tradition annual feast. I'm a decent cook and have rarely heard comments of meal dissatisfaction, yet it is a scary transition to make.
I'm actually looking forward to this meatless Thanksgiving as I do not have to handle meat as well as smell dead turkey in my house for the few days that follow. For me this Thanksgiving will truly be a cause for celebration and a meal of fellowship with family and friends.
