This Christmas vegans will be mostly eating...
"...Tofurky, cranberry sauce, yummy pies, mashed potatoes, stuffing, vegetables... did I mention yummy pies..."
"...probably some over-cooked veggies @ parents"
"...stuffed mushrooms with wild rice, roast potatoes with thyme, brussel sprouts, peas with mint, gravy, christmas pudding and soya cream, mince pies, vegan wine"
"...whatever I fancy at the time! I won't be dictated to!"
"...something wrapped in pastry as a centre piece. The main problem being that non-veg*ans seem to like what I prepare more than their usual!"
