Fall Eats & Treats for Thanksgiving Dinner

With Thanksgiving coming up this weekend, all I can think about (besides pacing the 10k) is all the yummy food we’ll be eating. Turkey, ham, sour cream potatoes, sweet potato bake, veggies galore and special family recipes that we *hope* the person brings to meal.

My aunt always makes these amazing chocolate coconut {Queen Anne Squares} that are to die for – I’m holding out that she’s making this. I’m on the sweet potato bake (mashed potatoes with peanut butter and maple syrup on top) and of course a few vegan treats!

Last night instead of running *gasp*, don’t worry I went to a great yoga class at lunch time 🙂 Last night I did a little baking…muffins, cookies and pie crusts for the weekend.

Since we went apple picking last weekend we have a bag full of apples to use up: apple pie, apple crisp and I might even make some apple muffins this week too! Since Saï is a vegan, I do all my baking vegan so he can enjoy it. Okay, that’s a lie, I do 90% of my baking vegan.

Some of what I made last night and still to come…..

Vegan Apple Pie


Pumpkin Muffins


Pumpkin Pie (maybe)


I’m not sure if I’ll get to the pumpkin pie but I’m pretty sure I’ll be hungry {or should I say “rungry”} after my 10k on Sunday. I’m a few days and a 1 hour drive with the girls and Saï away from Thanksgiving dinner!

What’s your favourite part of Thanksgiving dinner?

Do you make a secret family recipe to bring to your family dinner?

  1. I am sooo jealous that Thanksgiving is this weekend for you! We have to wait until the end of NOVEMBER!! I love all of the food, but especially the stuffing and the sweet potatoes. I do make a secret family recipe – a sweet potato souffle – but it isn’t so secret. I end up making it at my parents house while my mom and I cook! My favorite part of fall…the foliage and the weather…the cozy food…all of it!

  2. I love Thanksgiving. Being as far from family as we are, it has become one of my favorite holidays, and one that I completely cherish every year. And this year I am hosing again! I’ll likely do something similar as I did the first year, but you know that I’ll step it up a bit!

  3. I do love pumpkin too! And so looking forward to turkey dinner on Monday! Enjoy your family dinner… hey, just a p.s…. those shoe lights you reviewed… they look awesome. Would love to try them!
