Yesterday, I needed to get out of the house. So I took a quick trip to Monte Carlo.
The casino in Vegas, that is. I parked my car at the Monte Carlo and walked across the Las Vegas Strip to the corner where a couple of “Pilgrims” stood.
PETA volunteers dressed as Pilgrims, that is.
That’s a picture of Hayden from PETA holding a sign that reads “Gobble Veggies Not Turkeys.”
They were handing out free Tofurky to tourists. I spent some time holding one of their signs and handing out leaflets about turkeys.
Then I headed home with a Tofurky under my arm. I let it defrost during the afternoon as I watched Glee and Raising Hope on Hulu. In the evening I unwrapped it, surrounded it with chopped onion, garlic, yam, potato, and carrots, doused it with a bit of tamari and water, laid some fresh thyme and sage atop the veggies, and roasted my Tofurky for an hour.
The aromas filled the house and made me hungry. When the buzzer rang I pulled it from the oven and it was perfect! I sliced off a piece, grabbed some veggies and dug in.
