Blog Remodel

It's time for a little cleanup and reorganizing on Vegan Footprints. It will happen over time, so pardon the "dust." It will have a fresh new look and be even easier to find what you need.

I've recently looked at my original focus for this blog and feel that although I have written about those things, I want to take a different direction now. I've been writing this blog for two years and I've gotten a better feel for what I want to focus on.

The recipes will stay! That is the main subject of this blog and I continue to look for more healthy vegan recipes. I am looking for more raw recipes and ideas to include, so look for more of those forth coming.

I will still include ideas that I think would interest others. You will notice links on the side that will take you to other websites that I've learned from. With all internet viewing, please take cautions when needed. People are writing from their perspective only. I write from mine.

My love for vegan food will still be a focus here. As a courtesy, I wanted to let you know things will look different and there will be some "cleaning up." Some things may not be available anymore, but all recipes will stay.

Thanks for your interest in the Vegan Footprints blog. Keep reading! =)

Thanksgiving Menu with Recipes

Songs we sing this time of year remind us to be thankful. We should sing them year 'round, not only when Thanksgiving is near. Gratefulness is something we should practice with every breath.

I was telling our son just yesterday that although I like that we have a special time to remember our American history with a Thanksgiving meal once a year, we should remember to be grateful every day of our life. Our life here on earth is short and we have just a glimpse of eternity from this side. Let us also be thankful for the life that Jesus gave so we could join Him for eternity in heaven. Hallelujah!

Pick from these items for your Thanksgiving menu:

Salads: Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato, Caesar, Green Pea (these also includes dressing recipes)

Other Salad Dressings: Creamy Salad Dressing, Catalina (Red French)

Breads & Spreads : Old World Black Bread (great with Spinach Dip), Raw Flax Bread, Better Butter

Main Dishes: Universal Meatless Burger (made into loaf), Pumpkin Soup

Vegetable Sides: Skillet Brussel Sprouts, mashed potatoes, assorted raw veggies

Sides: Brown Gravy, Vegetarian Stuffing, Blender Cranberry Sauce

Desserts: Applesauce Quick Bread, Ginger Cinnamon Cookies, Basic Honey Vanilla Ice Cream

Another helpful basic recipe: Seasoned Salt

Certainly you can search through the list on the right sidebar of recipe categories, or further down, you can see the list of recipes by name.

From our house to yours, have a blessed Thanksgiving!
