Mmmmm....dessert. I had planned on making a caramel cake but due to a change in events I did not have enough time. Lucky me though because I had premade these Nanaimo Bars(see previous post for pictures of these) and my mom brought a sugar pie!

Breakfast: Tea and Quinoa Porridge
Lunch: Chickpea and Mint Soup and Grated Carrot Salad
Snacks: Pineapple and Almonds
Dinner: Chestnut Roast with sweet potato and steamed broccoli
The soup was amazing and so simple to make. Sounds odd but chickpeas and mint make a good combo. Dinner was pretty good as well. The chestnut loaf reminded me of stuffing because it had many of the same spices and ingredients in it. All of the recipes can be found here...You are What You Eat
Lesson of the day: Be careful when roasting chestnuts, especially if you do not score them because they can explode when they are under pressure.

I made a side of stuffing by just sauteeing fresh sage leaves, onions and celery in earth balance, then removed the sage leaves. Added the usual spices, a few cups of stale bread and about 1 cup of veggie stock. Mixed it all together then baked in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes. Served with sides of steamed corn and mashed potatoes.
Next I made the Mushroom Gravy from Fat Free Vegan Kitchen. This one is a keeper. I loved the flavours and the gravy was so rich tasting without a lot of added fat.

Wishing all of our American friends a Happy Thanksgiving. Hopefully turkeys were spared and people remembered to be thankful for what they have.
