Happy Tofurkey Turducken Turkey Day!

Okay, so I didn’t actually make a tofurkey.  I made a turducken for Iain and a turkey for everyone else, but I didn’t touch any meat today.  No turkey, no turducken, no gravy.  I am soo proud of myself!  It was a challenge because I have slowly been working my way towards vegetarianism/veganism.  I am concentrated more on the vegan side, because it seems if you do vegetarian, you still end up eating a lot of dairy and I’m trying to whittle that down.

I feel a little silly about it, because I haven’t told many people about the change.  I’m still a bit closeted, if you will.  It’s been about a month I think since I last had meat or poultry.  Still working on fish.  And I’m not sure I will really go vegan permanently, but I’m trying to bring in as many fruits, vegetables, and nuts as I can into my diet.  And I have been so into miso and lentils lately.  I love them!

In other news, it was great to see Don!  The surgery on the brain tumor went well.  He was immediately back to the old Don, talkative and opinionated.  🙂  Of course, he does have a line of staples running from the apex of his forehead to his ear.  It’s a little bit Frankensteinish, but actually not as distracting as you might think.   So I am very grateful for that.  He got a little teary-eyed, even said he loved us.  He’s kind of a man’s man, so such emotion is a bit unusual for him.  We still don’t know about the tumor in his lung, we’re waiting for results from that.

It was a really good Thankgiving!
