Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. There's minimal over-commercialization - it's all about getting together with loved ones and EATING.
This year, I'm cooking Thanksgiving dinner for a bunch of lactose intolerant family members.
The Sister has it so badly, she can't even ingest pancakes with trace amounts of milk powder in them. If there's any milk around, she and the Husband are constantly running to the bathroom.
Therefore, I'll be working with soy creamer, soy butter and lots of non-dairy cream cheese.
And for dessert, we'll have plenty of Tofutti Cuties!
I don't know how I escaped the Asian curse of lactose intolerance. I'm a mutant. And honestly, I'm going to miss the dairy this year.
Just for kicks, I bought myself a pint of Haagen Dazs to eat in front of them. Yum!!
