The Fall Feast


Thanksgiving this year is sure going to be different. Usually my volunteer work takes up most of my free time during the month of November. Due to the current crisis and my age, I’ve had to forgo volunteering. Food in our area, and I’m sure in yours as well, has really gone up. Actually everything has and for the first time in a long time this year has found us saying no a lot. No to extra’s, no to wants, no to luxuries, and no to non-essential items. We’ve got an entirely new outlook on spending, shopping, and accumulating stuff!

Thanksgiving will be a day of thanks for us in more ways than one–or at least that is what we are planning. I’m hoping turkey’s will be priced affordably and if not we’ll roast a chicken. Either way we will enjoy a warm meal and for that no matter what it consists of–we will feel blessed.

In the meantime here’s a picture of some cookies I baked the other night. I revised the recipe and used applesauce instead of egg, plant-based butter instead of dairy butter, and Enjoy Life chocolate chips.

My version of Martha Stewart’s Crisp and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies ==Vegan Style

1/2 cup of applesauce as a substitute for 2 eggs, 2-1/2 sticks of Country Crock Plant butter sticks (almond or avocado) rest of the recipe in link above as is.

Until next time friends be safe, stay well, and Happy Fall…soon winter❄️❄️
