Busy day!!! [Nov. 22nd, 2004|06:13 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
A busy day of running errands - wow!

We went to Sears (I had some gift certificates there!!!) and we got some tools for the workshop, and I bought a bunch of jeans and shorts and stuff like that. My only pair of shorts was one I'd had since I was 11 years old, lol, so it's about time!

Then we went to Whole Foods and bought a giant UnTurkey for Thanksgiving! We already have a Tofurky in the freezer, but since we are thoroughly spoiled and eat them on such a regular basis (our freezer is always chock full of fake veggie meats), I thought we'd get the UnTurkey since we usually only see those around Thanksgiving. And then we bought tons more food - a bunch of different wines, cheeses, olives, raw vegetables, mashed potatoes, fresh cranberries, green beans (going to try to make a greenbean casserole using broccoli cheese soup instead of cream of mushroom, to see if Matt will like it better.....), key lime pie, pumpkin pie, carrots, corn, rolls, and who knows what else - our fridge is STUFFED!

I'm glad we have everything all ready now - I hate doing last minute Thanksgiving shopping =P

We ran some other errands too, and now we're finally home! Whew! And of course, I'm ready to paint - you can watch me HERE! I finished the custom painting last night, and now I'm working on a kind of odalisque scene with a strange girl reclining on a bunch of big goblinny-frogs. It's a weird painting, and will probably scare the non-frog-lovers out there, but I don't care, lol! ;) =P

i once bought this hideous ruse of a turkey and it was some sort of compressed tofu crap in the shape of half a chicken and it smelled like hot wet garbage on a sunny day.

i have no idea where im going with this but i had the urge to share the pain of my faketurkey experience.

Lol!!! Sounds appetizing! I like Tofurkys and UnTurkeys - there was another one I tried once that wasn't that great - I forget what it was called (it didn't sound as bad as the one you had though, hehe).

You have so many great vege-meats there!! The stores around here are pretty much various different sizes of tofu blocks- and the odd canned delicacy such as nutmeat which more closely resembles dog food.

Very awesome painting by the way!!

at leat where you live they seem to try. here-if you ask for something without meat they take off the bacon. ergh-not that i am a vegetarian but i do like options.

that tofurkey really freaks hilda out i think. i remember her being quite confused and disturbed last year when she told me about it. I cracked up personally. thought it was a riot.

hope you have a lovely day.

Thanks for telling me what a bratwurst is lol! I was always curious about that word!
That Unturkey sounds like a good idea, I find it difficult to find things I can eat for xmas dinner as my family has meat and I now have a Linda Mcartney Cottage Pie with veggies and stuff, its very yummy and of course vegetarian yay!
