Going to spend Thanksgiving with your family on Thursday? Make extra and bring some to our gathering the night before!

      Thanks for the sweet comment and for all your help. Most folks don't have a clue about how much work goes into an event like that.

    Have 2 bags of apples from our tree, so can make a dessert. Wondering if there can be a carpool from Country Club Drive area? If not, then it's 2 buses, and the last one leaves at 9PM.

    This is so wonderful! The last time we had a vegan Thanksgiving feast in Santa Fe with over 50 people participated ( and many dogs!)was about 10 years ago, mostly were members of the Animal protection of NM ( an increible and dedicated group). I'm so glad we are promoting a compassionate Thanskgiving-to give thanks to Mother Earth and all her creatures instead of following a tradition of animal sacrifice. I'll bring a snow pea with mushroom and baby bell papper dish. Much thanks to the organizers!

    1 · October 24, 2012

      There is some pasta that has egg in it. Most do not. But, it is worth checking the ingredients. Thanks Phyllis!
