Happy holidays, everybody!
Do you guys ever feel an obligation to make food for big family holidays? I've had that mindset for this past Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners with my family (~15-20 people), which can be a bit exhausting when it comes to testing recipes during the days leading up to the event and day-of preparation, but is, I think, one of the best ways to expose my family to parts of veganism. Does anyone else have a similar or different take on these sorts of things?
Also, if you do make things for large gatherings, what do you make? I found my family likes my garlic mac and cheese the most, but I'm likely ganna start baking more in the future.
Here's what I made yesterday:
