i promised another giveaway this month. i really had fun reading all of your responses to last month's question about halloween. this month i'll ask the obvious... "what are you doing, or what do you usually do for thanksgiving?" maybe you'll give me ideas! i need some ways to make thanksgiving a little more special. as vegetarians we can't make it all about the turkey, but haven't really settled on a special dish yet. the first thanksgiving i spent with my husband we made pumpkin lasagna! one year we made a delicious vegetable pie, but it was really complicated. i did find a recipe for a swiss chard and gruyere gratin that is cooked in mini pumpkins (i saw it in living etc. magazine, but this is the same recipe). i'd like to try it this year... other than that we have no idea what we are doing!
so, leave me a comment and tell me what you are doing. also leave your email so i can get a hold of you. you can win one of my mini pumpkins... i think they would be cute for thanksgiving... a nice decoration or hostess gift. i only have two left, a creamy colored one, made from a hand dyed wool with a green polka dot stem (just slightly different than the one above), and an orange cashmere (same material i use for my orange kitties). you can pick which color you want. everyone is eligible, regardless of where you live. i promise to send it out quickly since thanksgiving is so soon, and because of that let's make this a quick one. post your comment by weds. the 19th at midnight (eastern standard time). good luck!
** i just realized that since this is open to international readers as well, not everyone can share a thanksgiving story! please feel free to leave a comment letting me know you'd like to be entered. thanks!
