So after a terrible run this morning (headed out for 6 miles, came back after 2... no energy left after doing 400m repeats last night)... I headed over to my friend John's house for a little potluck with just three of us here in Columbus. John made most of the food; I brought the potatoes and apple pie, and Adam brought the cranberries, pickles, and wine.
Starting with the potatoes and moving counterclockwise: roasted garlic parsnip/potatoes, homemade seitan roast with cashew gravy, chickpea tart (with spinach and walnuts), bourbon cranberry sauce, homemade garlic dill pickles, and hiding in the back, some raw green bean casserole (which was awesome). There was also bread with seasoned dipping oil (always my favorite!)
I also made Melissa's raw apple pie (oops, forgot the photos).
I am so... so... stuffed. I ate like two plates like that one. Haha. John did an awesome job with the cooking... and it was nice to have a holiday meal with lots of things to eat, instead of the usual family affair where there's like one vegan thing for me to eat and lots of judgy/aggressive comments.
Yay for holidays with friends and good food! Hope you all had a good one.
