Almost Vegetarian, Nowhere Near Thanksgiving

I had a craving. No, I’m not expecting. Not expecting anything but more fresh hell in the news.

So anyway, I wanted Thanksgivingy stuff.

I didn’t want a big hunk of meat, though, so we had this, which isn’t vegetarian, but isn’t a carnivore’s delight, either.

Baby spinach, pan-fried in vegan margarine with bacon bits. Instant cornbread stuffing. Cranberry sauce a la Bart with pecans on.

It satisfied.

I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies about salmon patties smothered in white sauce.

    Finished off the last of our spring spinach and added parmesan to top it off. Soooo good! But you can never have enough bacon 😉

      I’m looking forward to someday finding a plant-based or no-harm bacon that’s almost as good as the real thing. I want to be vegan, but DAMN.

        I have never made cornbread ever, but have enjoyed the storebought kind. Now I am curious to try, as inspired by you.

          I’ll be honest: This was storebought Stovetop Stuffing cornbread variety. I do make home-made cornbread, but I usually make it in cakes, like pancakes, and we eat it with bean soup or chili.
