(The reason this site is called "Tragedy and Triumph" is that when I first founded this site, my husband, Dan, had been in a horrible accident, and he recovered. His recovery was a miracle!

Thanksgiving 2015 Photos and Memories

The Cohen Family Surprised Us With a Special Thanksgiving 2015 Skating Cake!

Dan, Annabelle, and I, and my dad celebrated a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner today with Hellene Orenstein Anderson and her dad Leo and our friends Karen, Gary, and Sabrina Cohen.

We missed Joel and Rebekah so much.  (Joel is with Disney On Ice Frozen and the tour was in Vancouver, Canada on Thanksgiving Day 2015 and Rebekah has moved to southern California.)

The Cohens suprised us with a custom made skating Thanksgiving cake!

Our Thanksgiving 2015 menu included the following:
  • Turkey
  • Turkey-less Stuffed Loaf
  • Stuffing (vegan and traditional)
  • Cranberry Celebration
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Gravy (vegan gravy and turkey gravy)
  • Mashed Sweet Potatoes
  • Whole Green Beans
  • Carrots (cooked and raw)
  • Green Salad topped with cherry tomatoes and carrots
  • Cut Fresh Fruit platter (watermelon, pineapple, berries, strawberries, etc!)
  • Quinoa and Kale vegetable dishes
  • Pea and Garbanzo bean veggie casserole
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Thanksgiving Cake
  • Fruit Tarts
  • Rolls
  • Blue Corn Chips and Veggie Flaxseed Chips
  • Hummus
  • Pineapple and Mango Salsa
  • Frogs Eye Salad
  • Pistachio Salad
  • Lemonade, Cider, and Sparkling Cider

We had REAL TURKEY, but we also had Turkey-Less stuffed roast since Annabelle is a vegetarian and I try to eat vegan (in honor of Rebekah) when I can...
Doesn't My Dad Look GREAT!?
Five years ago, we spent Thanksgiving 2010 with my friend Hellene's family and today we spent Thanksgiving 2015 with Hellene and her father Leo again.

I decided to use our Chanukah napkins...why not?
