Vegan Thanksgiving Dinner

Paula's generosity in offering her lovely home centrally located in the Buckhead area will enable those of us without family locally (or who want to escape family!) and who want a healthy, delicious, cruelty-free meal to really enjoy Thanksgiving.

This will be a multi-Meetup event, with Atlanta Vegan and Healthy Lifestyle Celebration, Exploring Raw Foods, and Healthy Adventures.  Please sign up under just one MU so we don't count you twice or more; an accurate head count is important (honoring your RSVP is crucial so we plan for the right amount).

Please bring one dish to share.  Post what you are bringing so we don't end up with just desserts (I guess there's worse things that could happen, but in the interest of a balanced meal, we'd like some entrees and side dishes as well, and also appetizers). 

Bring a vegan dish that uses whole foods (organic if possible).  Paula will be inviting some members of her raw food MU, so there could be raw food as well, but cooked is also good, especially for Thanksgiving.

Please also pay $3 to reimburse for paper goods and water, as well as the tables that Paula is renting.  She's going to be incurring a bunch of other costs as well, such as decorations, so donations are appreciated to help her offset some of the costs.

If you'd like anything other than water to drink, feel free to bring it.

Since we are deviating from the Standard American Thanksgiving, we won't be watching football or anything else on television.  We'll just chat and eat.  Possibly we will talk about what we are grateful for.  We may also play some social/party games that can get everyone involved in a fun way; please bring some if you have any.  And if anyone plays music, we're open to that as well. If you have problems coming up witheveryone involved in a fun way; please bring some if you have any.  And if anyone plays music, we're open to that as well. If you have problems coming up with something to bring, just Google vegan Thanksgiving recipes (remember:  no cheese, chicken/beef stock, honey, milk, cream, butter).  See the links below.  I'll be glad to help you veganize a recipe you have or select a recipe.

    Bringing about 24 two-bite-size servings of a homemade maple-syrup/hazlenut baklava (sushi-roll type ) pastry plus about 15 two-bite-size portions of Lara Bar lemon Poundcake bars. Would've made more stuff, but I thought only 20 were coming! With 51 or more coming, there should be lots of great food! Thanks for hosting Paula!
