Thanksgiving 2016 Style – Succulent Chicken, No Turkey

Even as a vegan I have never imagined preparing Thanksgiving Dinner for my meat-eating family with no turkey! Like seriously, my family is from the ole' school. They could care less that I chose the vegan lifestyle. Literally, they could care less. 

So this year I was looking for a way to show everyone you could have an inexpensive dinner, and not have to buy a turkey. I know it sounds insane, but I wanted to try something different and see if anyone would miss turkey!

Taco Tuesday

Who wouldn't want tacos on Tuesday?

Seriously, after a great weekend, you have to come face to face with Monday (grrrrr), leaving you physically drained and waiting for the weekend to come back around again. Then, Taco Tuesday arrives and it gives you the boost you need, because you know...a fresh, savory taste is coming...wrapped in a warm tortilla and topped with all the fixings - fresh lettuce, tomato, salsa, and guacamole!!! #BlessGod!! Mexican Black beans topped with sriracha (I’m hungry right now!!)

I was trying to figure out the best way to kick off The Cooking with Que blog, but it had to be simple...and incorporate something that everyone loves. #TACOS!!!! (Come on saints… I know your mouths are watering right now lol!!!!) The #TacoTuesday hashtag has taken over the web and I make a pretty tasty Taco (let’s be honest) soooo……. WHY NOT #CookingWithQue for #TacoTuesday?

I’m Vegan …….. but…. LET’S TALK CHICKEN!!!!!

Who knew shopping for chicken to feed my family would be such a big deal!

I mean seriously. Once you figure out what you’re cooking for dinner you should be able to just go to the grocery store, grab what you need and get out right?
I feel like you need to be a certified nutritionist to even go to the grocery store! It’s ridiculous. I already have to read packages, because I’m the vegan of the family and allergic to dairy!!! (sometimes people think I’m saying “lactose intolerant”….. NO!! THERE IS A DIFFERENCE) Sigh!!!
Have you ever read the back of packaged chicken? I thought it would just say - Ingredients - chicken? Ha! A joke!
Each package had different verbiage. I’m going to give you the basics of what to look for and how it reads.
THE BASICS ... what to look for while you’re shopping.
