Excitement about seeing their cousins is one of the kids' favorite parts of Christmas.
Is it too late for a Christmas recap? I mostly covered Christmas on my other blog. Here are some of the "vegan aspects":
For Christmas with my parents and siblings (and their families), we went Italian. Mom made vegan lasagna (and non-vegan lasagna), along with Rising Moon Ravioli plus sauce.
Tracy brought bread from Boulevard Bread Company.
And for dessert, of course, it was the thumbprint cookies and pumpkin cake from my last post.
My kiddos:Ryan requested a "traditional" breakfast with tofu scramble, tempeh bacon, and biscuits and gravy for Christmas morning brunch.
My parents bought me three vegan cookbooks, Viva Vegan!, Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar, and Vegan Brunch. This was my first attempt at making an omelette (from Vegan Brunch). I have some more practice to do, but the kids were wolfing them down. I filled these with broccoli, spinach, and a little seitan and Daiya.
We made cut-out cookies, using Cherrybrook Kitchen "D.W." Sugar Cookie Mix. We don't use artificial food coloring in our house, but we can still have fun!
How about this angel beauty?
