Come celebrate our veg community, amazing cruelty free food and being part of something bigger then each of us on our own.
I thought the name "Gentle Thanksgiving" name taken from our friends at FARM was a most appropriate name for this annual gathering. Please promote their efforts, they have an excellent website http://www.gentlethan...
Our Gentle Thanksgiving meetup will feature cruelty free thanksgiving foods for those who have families to go back to that may not get the "vegan" thing yet. Come try some awesomely delicious plant based dishes and take home some new ideas and recipes to try out on your "other" families. (;
Sadly, every year in the US over 6 million!! turkeys are brutally slaughtered for a holiday that is supposed to symbolize our abundance and gratitude for all we have. We can (and must!) do better than this, I encourage all of you to bring your compassionate ways to your friends and families and wow them with your planet friendly creations. I will have little recipe booklets for people to take home, as well as a list of websites that have great recipes for compassionate and sustainable options to the typical slaughtered turkey centerpiece. UGH, it should be a funeral instead of a celebration. Anyway, we will show what it really means to be thankful and compassionate. If anyone wants to learn how to make main courses like the tofu love bomb or other roasts we can do a class the day before and of the event. let me know if there is interest.
Call or email with any questions or recipe requests. Please specify what kind of dish you plan on bringing (ie. main course, appetizer, desserts etc) bring your own alcohol if you like. I'll have a few bottles of wine in addition to the tofu love bombs and some delectable desserts and beverages. We will gather at 5:30 with some appetizers and then the feast will begin promptly at 6:00. Please try to arrive on time.
Feel free to call or email if you have any questions or need directions.
As always, I am really looking forward to meeting/ reconnecting with everyone and continuing to build a great Vegan Meetup and Compassionate Community!
ps- This meetup will definitely fill up so be sure to RSVP early if you want to attend.
pps- I will be asking for $3 per person to pay for renting of the room the extra food and beverages for this special meal. If this is not affordable, call me and we can make it work.
