It's another year my husband is working the holidays at the fire station. We are lucky he doesn't have to work them every year, but it does happen. I admit it was hard to get used to, at first, and I felt very sorry for myself. But now it's just another day, and the kids and I go to other family for dinner, or to friends.

Still, it's another year I'm not cooking Thanksgiving dinner, and that always makes me a little sad. So instead of posting my holiday delicacies here, I thought I'd share with you some links to recipes I think look tasty.

 Eating Well has a whole vegetarian menu, and I think the Savory Bread Pudding with Spinach and Mushrooms looks delightful, don't you?

Or how about the Spinach tartlets?

Though I have to say, that this dish is probably what I'm going to make to share: Sweet potato, red onion and fontina tart. I love making dishes with this rustic feel to them, and the same idea can be used to make sweet tarts like pear or apple. You simply fold the edges of your pasty up and over to create it's own "dish" and bake on a cookie sheet.

Of course, mashed potatoes aren't so exciting without gravy, and Martha Stewart has a nice recipe here for it.

And then of course, Cooking Light has a whole vegetarian menu ready for you here.

So there you have it. Lots of options to choose from.

Happy Turkey Free Thanksgiving, friends!
