...but all who attended Vegan Thanksgiving cine-dips were born to sweet delight.
There were black bean and yam sliders, baked squash and Brussel sprouts in a balsamic glaze, homemade chocolate mint soy ice cream, apples and walnuts in a cinnamon-y sauce, pumpkin pie, boozey silk nog, and wild turkey.

It's a fantastic film. We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do.
To further subvert this Thanksgiving themed cine-dips, I thought we'd try making the dips and drinks all vegan.

Ban made Shrimp and Sesame Sticks with Apricot Dipping Sauce. Check out the recipe here. They were delicious! He also made Roasted Red Pepper, Almond, and Garlic Dip that he served with fresh cut veggies. This dip was excellent too. Here's the recipe for it if you want to try it out.
The rest of the gang rounded out the spread with asiago dip & pita chips, chocolate stout cheese, and fig spread with crostini, chocolate chip cookies and cupcakes. Sadly, I forgot to photograph all this deliciousness. So, you'll have to take my word for it.
Everyone seemed to enjoy the movie, The Man Who Planted Trees, and a great conversation ensued.
Afterward, we took to the basement and played Rockband, Rockband 2, and Beatles Rockband. We'll get Manna up to speed on those Beatles songs if it kills me. Love you, Manna :)

Saturday night Cine-Dips will be infiltrated by two new members who'll be hosting the prestigious gathering this month. The most notable round up of this group held here previously was the night that Barack Obama was elected President. That night was characterized by hope and inspiration.
We'd like to continue that theme with our movie selection, The Man Who Planted Trees which won the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film in 1987. You can read up on the movie at IMDB here or Wikipedia here. You can bet that we'll be serving up food and drinks that are awe-inspiring (couldn't resist, sorry). Cine-Dips...Yes.We.Can

Jason and Yvonne had some things come up this month, so the June Cine-Dips will be at Steven and Stephanie's house, Saturday, June 27 at 8PM. We'll be watching Dirty Dancing, a study of class and gender in the 1960s, wrapped up in a coming-of-age love story, and topped off with a very, very awesome soundtrack.
