November 18 2022

For dinner I made stuffed red Kuri squash. Delicious! These are perfect for stuffing.

That’s two cheezeballs made. Pecan pie next! 😋😋😋

Vegan pecan pie is ready.

I usually only make the cranberry sauce and green bean casserole but I am in a being-creative-in-the-kitchen mode.

Next up is the cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, macaroni and cheeze, and vegan dressing. 😋😋😋

Cranberry sauce is done. ❤️

That’s it for today. Green bean casserole is now cooling. 💚 The Mac n Cheeze and dressing will have to wait until tomorrow as I don’t have room in the fridge.

This looks amazing! This was my first time making Vegan Mac n cheeze. Think I’m going to have to sneak a bite or two once it cools. 😋😋😋

Okay. I’m finished. Vegan dressing is done! Headed to The Romano Duo’s place now.

That was fun! It’s been many years since I’ve made this much food, and have never made this huge of a vegan meal. Those B12 shots have made a big difference.

Team TLC 2020 Thanksgiving

November 26 2020

Last night after Thomas and I watched our 3 episodes of The Clone Wars, I got busy in the kitchen. Love the popping sounds the cranberries make. ❤️❤️❤️

We started the transformation last night. Step 1: Rearranging furniture and the tree up. Rest time after that! Later today or tomorrow we’ll add the multi color lights to the tree, along with the ornaments. ❤️🎄💚

Breakfast!! I’m still trying to perfect vegan baking (been vegan for 3 years now, I’m a slow study!), so when I come across something already made for me, I grab it!! I’m like a kid in a candy store! I’m a pretty good cook, but baking is hit or miss. 🖤😂🤣🖤

We had an appetizer lunch (my vegan plate with the bread, along with the dips and chips), followed by a sweet nap in the rocking chair.

I’m thankful that 4 or 5 years ago, I spotted a friends Facebook post, at the ribbon cutting/breaking ground for the place we now live. I got myself on the waiting list. Around January 2019, I got a call asking if I was still interested (I had assumed the project had been abandoned). After 6 months of delays we finally moved in around this time last year.

It was pure hell those 6 months. I’m thankful I stuck with it. I kept giving notice we were moving, then had to rescind. The last time I gave notice, our apartment got rented. And, then, this one got bumped again. Spent 3 days being homeless before finally getting to move in. So, I am going to soak in and savor every last bit of the goodness of this place. ❤️❤️❤️

2020 Thanksgiving – A game of BINGO via Zoom, sharing what we’re thankful for, and chatting a bit. Team TLC, The Romano Duo, and Team Schutzler. I have two gorgeous nephews. Look at them.

Heather is my step-sister, Frank’s daughter. This was so much fun, Heather Schutzler, Patty Romano, Frank C. Romano Jr, Thomas Darnell, Lillian Darnell(who was busy doing her own thing), and Brian Schutzler. ❤️❤️❤️

I’m so proud of the homemade vegan green bean casserole I’ve made for the last 2 years. So, photos from beginning to end. It’s mine and Thomas’s favorite holiday dish.

It was so good!!! 😋🖤😋

Thomas and Camilla extra movie night – “Christmas Vacation”

Fun Old Fashioned Family Christmas …. 😂🤣😂

We usually watch this with The Romano Duo on Thanksgiving night. Settled for watching it at about the same time as them. ❤️❤️❤️
