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.

Bloombergbusiness.com (of all places): "The rise of the Power Vegans" quoting :"Steve Wynn, Mort Zuckerman, Russell Simmons, and Bill Clinton... Ford Executive Chairman of the Board Bill Ford (F), Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, venture capitalist Joi Ito, Whole Foods Market (WFMI) Chief Executive Officer John Mackey, and Mike Tyson. Yes, Mike Tyson... Alec Baldwin... both vegan and fat at the same time. Interesting article and comments, worth reading with a critical eye.

Nikolai, I don't think anyone else here will fault you for starting your own exclusive group. However, please be aware that will mean that you take responsibility for monitoring and maintaining it. People who start groups then give up just litter the site with groups that no one knows what to do with. Doubtless others here would join it, and there is no problem with being a member of more than one group.

I disagree that there should be separate groups - your one-sentence justification for wanting to do so shows no input of thought process or critical thinking, just a statedment of preference. Starting a group should be more thoughtful than that.

Thanks for sharing, Nikolai. You can always go start your own exclusive group...plenty of room here.

I would much prefer a Vegan/Atheist Nexus, as I do not find adult lacto-vegetarians vegetarian at all.

The answer is: where other animals get theirs; from plants.

Vegetarian for 25 years or so. Still get the "where do you get your protein" question, drives me crazy.
