Our Thanksgiving Menu

It might be old news, but Matt and I each have a brother that’s vegan. I’ve mentioned before that I grew up vegetarian – so, it stands to reason that my brother and I took 2 different directions: I went with humanely raised meat, he went with none at all. We believe we have more in common than not.  However, coming up with a menu to please everyone when you’re not able to access anything other than nuts and veggies, can be tricky.  Here’s what we’re planning… if you ever want to know what recipes we like, check out our pintrest boards!
