Vegan feast

Okay, I'm finally posting about the vegan feast. The feast is in celebration of my, and two other friend's vegan anniversary. This is our second year.

We had ten people, I think. Four vegans, two pescatarians, three omnivores, and a LOT of food.

And I actually didn't take any pictures there... But, I have a couple pictures from before and after....

I made some roasted veggies, this is them before baking. They're in a nice autumny marinade. It's made of balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, garlic, plenty of sage, thyme, oregano, cinnamon and olive oil. It might make a nice autumny balsamic salad dressing...
The roasting veggies in question are yams, carrots, parsnips, turnips, rutabagas, zucchini, onion, and red bell pepper.

I also brought some stuffed acorn squash. (Yes, this is the same photo I used before)

Some mushroom gravy. (Same photo again)

And a pumpkin cheesecake! The whole thing was devoured.

Other foods were mushroom soup, onion bread, chocolate bread, two Tofurkeys, stuffing (Which was actually really good! I usually don't like bread stuffing because it's usually like bread glop, but this wasn't at all gloppy, and really good!), mashed potatoes, homemade zucchini and onion pickles, (Which were good, but were a frightening yellow color. I think they used a bit of turmeric), pumpkin cookies, pecan pie, apple pie, and that is probably it. Oh my goodness there was a lot of food.
