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!
