Black Friday!Today -- the day after Thanksgiving is known as "Black Friday, but it's also a day for leftovers!! I actually had to go to work so I brought my leftovers with me. Today, in my Tupperware, I brought my leftover "Meatless Meatloaf" and my "Individual Vegan Orange Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes with Candied Maple Pecans". When I linked this recipe to my Thanksgiving post, it was for a casserole. I decided to to make these as individual servings where I can put them out on a platter and have people grab their own portion. It looked like this when I pulled it out of the oven . . .

Here's a blurry photo of it. [caption id="attachment_555" align="aligncenter" width="150"] Lemon Garlic Stringbeans[/caption]
They were delicious and went quickly. Next time I make this -- I will double the recipe.
I also figured that there would be plenty of desserts on hand at our Thanksgiving feast, but none that would be good for my gluten-free/dairy-free daughter, so I whipped up a batch of my favorite Double Chocolate Cherry Chip Cookies by Elena's Pantry. However, I didn't have cherries on hand, so I made it with cranberries. Delish. Here's a photo of them cooling on a wire rack.[caption id="attachment_556" align="aligncenter" width="150"] Double Chocolate Cranberry Cookies[/caption]
All in all, dinner was delicious and I love spending it with friends and family (and dogs -- lots of dogs)! I hope that everyone had a Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving and that you come up with wonderful recipes for your leftovers! Now -- off to Black Friday Shopping!!!
