This year I’ve found a number of recipes you’ll love and that I can’t wait to try for my own personal vegan Thanksgiving (I’ll be with lots of family and I’m sure they’ll eat what I make, but no one else in my group will be skipping the turkey, which is fine). I don’t have to work on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving so I’m not feeling much like keeping it simple! But if you are… see my previous plant-based Thanksgiving blogs at the bottom of this post.

The way Shavuot falls this year (10 days from now) we are looking at a three day yuntov. Because of the length and because it starts with Shabbat, I really have to keep my menus simple to maintain my sanity. I encourage you to do the same! You’ll also want to do as much prep ahead of time as possible.

I have two suggestions to simplify your menu.
