Why I didn't cook for Thanksgiving

For some reason my blog is acting up.. click for new recipe..

I love Thanksgiving, but being a vegetarian, I don't eat Turkey. For me, Thanksgiving is all about the side dishes. The fall vegetables,squashes, pumpkins, cranberries, apples, etc. make for some awesome dishes. I didn't cook anything  for Thanksgiving this year because my kitchen was torn apart. At Thanksgiving,  I had no appliances , no counter tops, etc.

.



Instead, I took a vacation to the Caribbean and enjoyed the sunny 85 degree weather, the sea, and the spa with family and friends

 The airport in Cancun was all decorated for Christmas




Right now, all my cabinets and appliances are in...YAY!
However, I have no countertops, sink, or water... one more week and I can start cooking again!
