Before writing this post, I did a little Google search just to see how other people serve their Tofurkey. One particularly thrilling recipe suggested marinating it in whiskey. Because YES.
While on the search, one of the first links that popped up was of this book:
After which I yelled through the house, "Honey? Did you get any yams?"
This photo made me laugh so hard because I'd never considered Tofurkey romantic before. I just love that there is vegetarian erotica. And the Santa hat takes it over the top. Being the intrepid reporter that I am, I delved further into the Amazon link to find out that people who bought this book also bought:
Oh my god. I LOVE it when I'm doing an innocent search for fake meat and end up finding beefcake. Now, I'm sure that you think that you already know what this book is about (and I did too after reading the first page online) but no. Here is the description:
Since moving to Boston, Kyle Slidell has met only a few of his neighbors, including Tobias Rogan. Kyle is very interested in Tobias, and is ecstatic to learn that Tobias wants him too. But his neighbors have a secret: They're werewolves, and Tobias is the pack Alpha. When one of the wolves attacks Kyle in the neighborhood garden one night, Kyle learns the truth in a hurry. Now he's a werewolf too-and since he's vegan, he refuses to eat meat. With Tobias's help and love, Kyle must adjust to his new life and protect himself and his friends from a neighboring pack.
Vegan Werewolf Smut!
There is one more book about veggie burgers and werewolves but as I feel like they're just double-dipping in the same condiment pool, I won't dignify it by including it. That said, I am disappointed that there aren't tons more food related volumes like maybe "Manwich Night", "Porkchops and Applesauce" or a Southern themed one called "Butter My Biscuits" but alas, the world must wait.
In the meantime, here is a little something that the Mister and I made by stitching thirty seven photos together to make a mini film about Tofurkey and gravy (I know..I know...that was the most awkward transition in the history of writing but enjoy! )
Oh and there are no yams included in our film. Totally family friendly.
p.s. I only just now remembered that I'm supposed to be doing Valentine's Day related posts until Tuesday. Looks like that went out the window a couple of days ago. Long week..folks. Long week. I still wish you all hearts and flowers and flying babies with wings.
Until Next Time,
x's and o's,
