Today's prompt: Turkey
What exactly does a vegetarian do for Thanksgiving (or any holiday, for that matter)? I refuse to give in to this Tofurkey business. If you're going to have a pretend turkey, just go ahead and eat the real one. I cannot even imagine the taste of that tofu-based fake poultry. No thanks.
I like to dig in to squash, mashed potatoes, stuffing and cranberry sauce. Pretty much absolutely everything but turkey. While some may find this a mortal sin, I certainly do not miss the gigantic bird. Waking up at 5a.m. to get that darn thing in the oven doesn't fit with my sleep schedule. It's a holiday. Sleep should not be interrupted by early morning cooking.
And to be honest, I never cared for the taste anyway.
