This past Thanksgiving was our first in our new home! I still can’t believe it’s been a year since we moved in! Our first Thanksgiving in our new home was special to us. Looking back, I love being a homeowner, however, it would be nice to share it with someone special. In the meantime, we enjoy our home. I love decorating our space in my own way!
Up until about a week before Thanksgiving, I didn’t have any plans. I wasn’t planning on making anything special since it was just my son and myself. My son is a picky eater.
However, I decided to splurge! I decided to order a Vegan Thanksgiving Meal (for 2) from a local grocery store! I chose to pick it up two days before Thanksgiving. I wanted to avoid the crazy crowds of last minute shoppers!
My son had the entire week of Thanksgiving off from school too! We had a calm and relaxing Thanksgiving vacation! We picked up the meal early in the afternoon with no issues. It was our first time there too. I wish I could shop there all the time as they sell healthy food!
The employee was kind enough to go through the box of food with me to make sure everything was included. I saw the portions and immediately thought it didn’t seem like very much food, especially for two people! I was a smidge disappointed!
Thanksgiving morning went like any other morning. I knew I didn’t have to start cooking until about an hour before I wanted to eat. Cooking the Vegan Thanksgiving meal would only take about an hour and I would have to do two rounds in the oven.
As you can see, the Vegan meal includes several side dishes! My Thanksgiving meal was delicious, filling, and easy to organize and cook! I was able to squeeze in at least 7 meals! There was plenty of leftovers!
One of the sides included sweet potatoes and I wasn’t thrilled about that one, but when I tried it, I was floored! It tasted so good! Everything tasted great!
The only regret I have is not buying two pumpkin pies! I found out that my son loves pumpkin pie! I cheated and had a slice two days before Thanksgiving. My son wanted a slice and he surprisingly gobbled it up quickly!
If there’s a Christmas Vegan Meal, I plan on buying that one too! This was definitely worth the extra expense as I was able to squeeze in several meals and the food was delicious!
