Unturkey Day


This Thanksgiving was all about trying new things. First of all, I didn’t have to cook much this year or host anything at my house. Our friends Michael and Crystal invited us over to their place for a vegan feast featuring a fabulous menu. What a relief that was. Second, it was an exploration of new eats. Instead of the regular Tofurkey, they had gotten this new thing at Wholefoods called Unturkey. I was a bit skeptical at first. I mean if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? But Michael said the box was just too damn funny and that it looked good. Well, it was good…really good in fact. Came with some yummy gravy and stuffing inside. A delightful treat. Also delicious were the cauliflower, potato cakes, and my broccoli casserole. The dessert wasn’t too bad either: apple pastry things, ice cream, and lattes (courtesy of Sean the barista).

After dinner we played Monopoly and the new Grand Theft Auto. So yeah, I guess you could say we gave thanks in some serious style.

  1. Lord of the Rings Monopoly? That’s awesome!

    Two of my friends and I had no plans, and we just figured we’d go out to eat somewhere. We all moved here relatively recently from New York, where pretty much every restaurant is open on Thanksgiving. It seems in L.A. that’s not the case — the first few places we checked were closed. So we ended up at this Indian place in our neighborhood (which was empty aside from us), and then came home and watched The Apple on DVD. It was nice.
