Many delightful recipes here. Love thick soup as well. However, why the turkey meatballs? Seriously, if one is going to have turkey on a holiday, I would have roasted turkey and not meatballs made from turkey made earlier on. Wait til the vegans see the corn with bacon on top. However, since Care2 is a site used by both omnivores, vegetarians and vegans, there should be something for everyone.

Cynthia B says to "Go vegan." No thanks. I don't tell you to go meat, so don't ask me to go vegan. Will certainly try vegan and vegetarian recipes quite often but have no intention of going vegan since organic non-factory farm eggs, milk, cheese and even local raw honey are on the vegan no no list.

I thought there was a limit on how much you could take of this, but I'll look into it more.
