Some pictures from Thursday.

The faux turkey:

I used Robin Robertson's recipe for the seitan, and made a pecan/apple sage sausage/orange cranberry/mushroom stuffing.

Brandon made the mashed potatoes and brussels sprouts. He also supplied the comedy and beer.

Aaron had seconds. I was impressed. I had one plate and passed out.

Warren helped clean up by catching everything I dropped on the floor.

OMG. That seitan roast looks amazing!!! The crust is spectacular! And great choice having the autumn rolls at Thanksgiving. Something kinda light and different and seasonally appropriate- I like it!
Your kitty looks so cute eating off the stove. That happens in our house, too!

Did you do anything different to the roast recipe to get that brown crisp top? It looks amazing - it all does.

I wrapped it in Pepperidge Farm puff pastry to make a "skin"! Then basted with some soy sauce, ketchup, maple syrup, and warm water.
