TWO Party Vegan Giveaway Winners Announced

What an amazing variety of great comments we got for the two Party Vegan Giveaways!  Thanks you so much for all who entered — there are so many great ideas for Thanksgiving food (and “etiquette”!).

The winner of the first giveaway is: Dawn, who shared her holiday tips:

My best holiday tip is to plan your menu and then make as much ahead as possible. If you are also having overnight guests, make breakfast items ahead of time and then freeze! Here’s a link to my feast from last year, I made the omelette burgers and pancakes ahead and froze them. Just had to reheat when needed (toaster oven for the pancakes, cast iron skillet for the breakfast burgers): http://veganfazool.blogspot.com/2011/11/feast-photos-thanksgiving-2011.html  Thanks for a great giveaway! I don’t have this book but it’s been on my wishlist a while!

 The winner of the second giveaway is Deborah, who had great suggestions on what to bring to an omni Thanksgiving dinner:

I would not ask a hostess to accommodate my special dietary requirements. I would, however, offer to bring one (or more) side dishes that I would be able to eat and would be happy to share them with others. Bringing a visually appealing and delicious dish to a non-vegan event is the best way I know of to introduce great-tasting plant-based foods to those who might not normally build their meals around them. If, for some reason, the hostess wasn’t keen on the idea of a guest bringing some dishes to share (some people are pretty particular about their holiday menus), then I might casually ask what was on the menu. If there were at least a few things I could nibble on, I would do the best I could. But if it sounded like there was nothing I would be able to eat, I would simply have a light supper (i.e. salad or bowl of soup) before going to the event and then enjoy a glass of wine and the company of others while there.

CONGRATULATIONS to Dawn and Deborah!  Please e-mail me with your mailing addresses so that we can get a copy of Party Vegan out to you  both.  If I don’t hear from you in 48 hours, new winners will be chosen.

I know everyone’s busy getting ready for the holiday weekend next week, but be sure to check back on Monday for another great giveaway (I’ll give you a hint…it contains 1,000 recipes)!!

P.S. Shown at the top of this post is a gratuitous photo of pumpkin cheesecake with streuselly topping.  Happy Thanksgiving!
