I hope you all had a relaxing, tasty Thanksgiving!
We have two Thanksgiving get togethers over here. On Wednesday we go visit one big group of family, and then on Thanksgiving we visit another group. Being a vegetarian among a bunch of meat-eaters, and people who like to cook their veggies with bacon, I brought a yummy veg-friendly dish to both places.
This year I decided to try something new, the Festive Chickpea Tart from Let Them Eat Vegan by Dreena Burton. The one I made Wednesday was kind of dry and crumbly. But the one I made this morning turned out great and I thought it was quite tasty.
I also made Dreena's Artichoke and White Bean Dip, also from Let Them Eat Vegan. Zoey and I thought it was pretty good. Make sure to let it sit a little bit before eating it. I tasted it right after making it, and it was much better by the time it was actually being served.
For Christmas, which will be at our house, I think I'll try a couple of her other holiday meal ideas.
Now as for the last part of the title... You see, Ben is a University of Texas grad. And yours truly went to Texas Christian University. And at the moment, we're watching a TCU vs. UT football game. So, definitely a big Go Frogs. Otherwise, Ben and his brother (who is also a UT grad) will never let me hear the end of it.
