I am an Atheist, and I am a Vegan.

I'd love that recipe, Pamela...maple roasted brussels sprouts sound terrific!

Next year, I told my husband I am taking over! I'm tired of having only MIL approved foods, MIL approved decor and MIL approved guests. I get it; her house, her rules. So, next year, my house, MY rules. ;o) It will be a multicultural cruelty free harvest feast!

I like Tofurkey. Sliced thin and covered in their yummy gravy. But I probably like the veggies I roast WITH the tofurkey better (sweet potatoes, onion, squash). I'm trying a maple roasted brussel sprout recipe from NYTimes.com. Dessert will probably be a vegan cupcake from a local bakery. We aren't having anyone over so I just make whatever I want. It's nice.

Thanks for the comments. I think I'll look for some sparkling cider. The homemade bread also sounds good. I used to make that, maybe this year. Sounds great!

We cook at home and my in laws (brother, sister, mother, and grandmother-in-law) usually stop over since they all live within blocks of us. Our Thanksgivings are all vegan and everyone is fine with that. They love my husband's cooking. We make everything from scratch. Our menu this year, which is pretty similar to years past, is a roasted veggies (with butternut squash, carrots, potatoes, onions, zucchini, and lots of garlic), mashed potatoes, seitan and gravy, cranberry sauce (yes, I really do love the stuff), apple pie, pumpkin pie, and some homemade bread. MIL always brings over the obligatory sparkling cider. :) It isn't a gigantic spread, but it is plenty for us.

We always go to the inlaws...and they always have a big dead bird in the middle of the table.

After 20+ years, I live with it. I sit at the other end of the table, bring lots of food I can eat with plenty to share, and stuff myself with mashed potatoes (with vegan gravy) green beans, brussels sprouts, apple pie (lard free pastry) homemade bread with Earth Balance butter, and Silk french vanilla creamer for coffee.
I don't bother with a turkey sub..I haven't ever found one that tastes good, and I don't miss it, with all the veggies to eat...

Any plans for thanksgiving meals? Living in a Chinese/Midwesternian household, we've usually had Manchurian dumplings and pumpkin pie. We've had dim sum but as a vegetarian it's a hassle to go out for it and not worth the trouble.

That old standard of the green bean casserole is also made. This year I'm on my own, might still have the dumplings and pumpkin pie.

I've always hated tofurkey. I would like some variety, something special that I don't usually have, but not necessarily celebratory of the puritain/pilgrim mythology. Haven't figured out what yet. Maybe a variation on the dumpling idea.

One year we had Indian food - not native American but Indian subcontinent. Namaste (A local Indian/Nepal restaurant) was open for buffet. Too complicated for me to cook however.

All that cheese grosses me out. What a waste on so many levels - making cows make more milk then removing the fat and expending the resources to make it into cheese, then convincing people to eat it and increase their risk for heart disease and stroke, then expending resources to treat the cheese-induced diseases. Wow.

Stephen,
I agree, vegan diet can be very cheap, probably less than meaty diet. The challenge is learning how to cook vegan. Actually, the challenge may be getting people to cook, period - seems to be more and more a lost skill. Now off to make some vegan dumplings... yum.
