It’s your daily Thanksgiving preview! You guys are going to send me a million photos of your Thanksgiving dinners once you’ve had them next week, RIGHT? I made a special email folder for them last year that I’ve kept for this year because I’m so excited to see and share your beautiful food! Man that came out way creepier than intended, whoops.
This photo is from Andi’s vegan Thanksgiving potluck and you should really read her description of all the different dishes piled on those plates because holy moly, did Andi and her friends eat like kings! How many of you are having potluck Thanksgiving this year? How many of you are having TWO Thanksgivings, one of which is a potluck? Your Vegansaurus recommends eating as many Thanksgiving meals as possible, because eating is awesome and Thanksgiving food is really the best. All that sage and rosemary and root vegetables? And the gourds! Sweet and savory!
I need a minute.
Sabrina of The Tomato Tart (we love her!) is posting some delicious-looking recipes on Treehugger, and they’re all (mostly?) vegan! One of our current favorites is this faro salad with plums and olive oil that looks like the perfect summer potluck dish if we’ve ever seen one! Bring this to your next function to delight your ungrateful family and friends!
New Vegan Event in San Francisco YES!! It’s the Vegan Happy Hour S.F. and it’s at Hemlock Tavern every 2nd Friday of the month. Which means it just happened. SOWWY. However, this is your advanced warning for next month and all consecutive months until the end of time.
It’s a potluck so bring food to share and you can fan them/get more info on their Facebook page. By the looks of their first event, there was hella fried food there CAN I GET A WHAT WHAT FOR DELICIOUS FRY!? Also, vegan drink specials! Let’s get drunk and eat fried food until we’re all so disoriented that we wander into traffic/get involved in an orgy/do something else regrettable!
The LA TImes is ‘Grossed out by Holiday Potlucks’. We at Vegansaurus would like to point out that at vegan potlucks—the best potlucks of all!—there is little to no risk of contracting food poisoning, as neither the dishes nor the kitchens they were prepared in are carriers of bacteria from dead animals.
(When we are feeling particularly vicious and sad, we like to think of food poisoning as punishment for eating animal bodies, such that meat = suffering for them and you. But that’s just between you and us and the wall.)
Host a vegan potluck! You will eat all sorts of delicious food, and your fears of dying of Salmonella poisoning will be (nearly) unfounded. Vegansaurus is proud to be the online home of San Francisco’s own Vegan Brunch Cartel.
