Gobble, Gobble. Real turkeys best being running and hiding this time of year. For a turkey-free but festive Turkey Thanksgiving, go for the naturally vegan Turkey Fruit Platter. This year’s Thanksgiving will be extra special.
Traditionally, Thanksgiving in the US falls on the second to last Thursday in November. It happens to be November 24 this calendar year. That date also happens to be our wedding anniversary.
I’m pretty good at remembering dates however, years have seem to escape me ever since I had kids… I wrote down our anniversary for 8 years. Times seem to fly by when you’re in the rush hour of life as we are with younger children. And time really does fly by (as does my memory) since my husband had to corrected my math. It will be 9 years of marriage.
8 years. 9 years. At this point, does it reeeally matter? This reminds me of the book Water For Elephants when the book begins with the character not remembering if he’s 90 or 93. He could carless how old he actually is since 3 years doesn’t matter once you’re that old.
Another thing after being married for so many years, it’s comfortable.
So now that we have the dates and year figured out correctly, we’ll be spending our 9th anniversary apart. Yeah. Good ole work means my husband will away traveling and cannot get back in time for Thanksgiving or anniversary.
Boo!The kids are bummed too. Holidays are important to build memories and traditions. I don’t know about you but we’re still trying to find make our ‘special family tradition’.
This new traditional will be making easy vegan Turkey Fruit Platters. Arranging the fresh fruit will keep the kids busy while I cook. Plus, we can eat this healthy snack between stuffing ourselves with too much food.
Feel free to change the type of fruit to meet your tastes. If you don’t like kiwi (or are allergic) try bananas or pineapple. The carrots make the feathers longer and more realistic. Change which ever fruits or veggies to meet you needs or taste.
Enjoy and happy early Thanksgiving!
