Pre-Thanksgiving Vegan Thanksgiving Potluck!!

I realize I'm completely behind on posts and I have a bunch of pictures to prove it... and really, I'll get back to them sometime.. I've been trying to make this post about our November 8 Pre-Thanksgiving Vegan Thanksgiving Potluck, but blogger won't leave the images correctly oriented so a lot of them have been coming up sideways. I keep trying to fix it, it doesn't work, I get frustrated and save it, come back to it later, repeat. Anyway, I need to get actual thanksgiving posted as well, so I'll do my best with these pictures as I shake my fist at blogger.

In any event, the potluck was fantastic. A bunch of people bailed at the last minute, so we were expecting a half dozen more people and had the food to prove it! We all stuffed ourselves silly, and had a great time.

No turkeys were harmed in the making of this potluck.

Lisa can probably better explain the contents of these little roll ups. They were cream cheeze and yum, I think...
