Happy Happy Thanksgiving &TAG

Hey everyone! yay! finally this time of year has come, Its THANKSGIVING! Happy thanksgiving everyone! Hope all of you will enjoy your thanksgiving, This year, why not try something new and different to eat for thanksgiving! Instead of eating Turkey, Try something that I eat! Its actually really really good, and tastes yummy, and super delicious, no lie. Want to try it, heres the recipe! I mean, you can also buy it, but I dont really know where you can buy it, at the places where you live, but you can make it. Its not too late right?


yep! Thats what it is. Its a Vegetarian Turkey! Instead of eating poor innocent turkeys, try this!
Tofurky! Heres the recipe :]

Vegetarian Tofu Turkey Loaf

Make your own vegetarian homemade "Tofurky"! Slice up this vegetarian tofu turkey and serve topped with vegetarian gravy for a vegetarian and vegan Thanksgiving entree, or, make veggie turkey sandwiches.

Ingredients:

  • 2 blocks firm or extra firm tofu, well pressed
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 tbsp dry sherry
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Preparation:

Freeze the tofu overnight or for a few hours. Allow it to thaw, then press well to squeeze out all the extra water.

Place the tofu blocks in a lightly greased loaf pan, squeezing them as close together as possible.

In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Pour about 2/3 of this mixture over the tofu, and refrigerate the remaining 1/3. Cover the tofu in the pan, and allow to marinade overnight, or for at least 4 hours.

After marinating, pour the remaining soy sauce mixture over the tofu, then bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, basting the extra marinade over the tofu once or twice.

Remove the tofu from the oven and carefully flip it over. Bake for another 45 minutes, basting occasionally. Allow to cool slightly before serving.

Enjoy your homemade tofu turkey!

So what are you guys doing this Thanksgiving? I'm eating with families and friends, so I'm super happy, especially because this year almost all of my best friends are going to be there eating together, we are all going to eat vegetarian food tonight! I'm already a vegetarian, but I'm happy that my friends are eating vegetarian food with me, when they are not a a vegetarian!

^_^ ~Thanksgiving TAG! (your it)~ ^_^
Hey! your it, now heres the Tag its very simple, Just post on What are your Thankful for?

Im Thankful for My family and Friends. They are so awesome, and they mean the world to me. They are so nice and are so helpful, I'm glad that I have such great friends and family members. Even though It pretty sad because most of family is in Taiwan, even my older sister is there, but I have made many best friends who I consider as my family already! They are the ones that help me anytime and all the time. They listen to everything that I need to say, and give me the best advice and tips. They celebrate with me when I'm happy and party together, and they help me when I'm feeling down and cry together.
I'm also Thankful for having so many things. Even though I am not rich or anything, and I only live in a small apartment, but at least I live comfortably and under a roof, and have a comfy bed and tons of stuffed animals.....I am a lot luckier than many people in the world nowadays, many that are homeless who have no where to go , I am alot luckier then them,I hope I can help them some way.....I am also very thankful to always be able to eat full and healthy , I'm happy and very thankful to be able to keep warm when its cold, and stay cool when the weather is hot :) I'm so grateful of many things, but these are the most important ones!

Tag your it! I tag everyone that reads this post! Give me the link or tell me if you do the post, I'd love to read it!!! And its ok, you dont have to do it today, its ok you can do this Tag even after Thanksgiving if you'd like to ^__^
