kenny i rock out

(no subject)

this thanksgiving i was just planning on basically rocking some vegan stuffing, vegan mashed potatoes, and a vegan pumpkin pie for major dishes. those are really the only things i ever ate at thankgiving. and me not being too much of a fan of fake meat and the failure i have heard that tofurkey is makes me not want to try it. last year my mom made me a vegeterian stuffing but since last year i have went vegan so i was curious on a vegan stuffing recipe. it would be really great if you had one you shared. thank you.

i have a question about trans fat.

i was looking at the peanut butter labels today at work and it said 0 grams of trans fat yet had hydrogenated oils in the ingredients. im just very confused. how is this. does anyone have an explanation for this?
thank you.

With Thanksgiving rolling around...

I checked the memories and couldn't find any UnTurkey specific entries so I just had to ask.

Has anyone had UnTurkey?
Is it good, bad, downright disgusting???

I think Tofurky is adequate and my dad loves eating all the leftovers so I wouldn't mind going with yet another one this year but I saw an UnTurkey floating around a local health food store and wanted to know if it is any good/better than Tofurky.
