I love Thanksgiving. Not only do I enjoy spending time with both sides of our families, but I love, love, love Thanksgiving dinner. My family has the same thing for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, and I never get tired of it. Our meal traditionally includes Worthington Turkee Slices folded up with stuffing in the middle, mashed potatoes, wild rice with vegetarian chicken, veggies and dessert. The turkee slices are a great alternative to real turkey, and they’re really pretty good.
Last night, my dad told me that Worthington has discontinued the turkee slices. With only a few days to go before Thanksgiving, we’re scrambling trying to find something to replace it. We found some kind of vegetarian turkey loaf, but I’m not really holding high hopes for it. I’m bummed because there’s really nothing else on the market to replace the turkee slices. My mom joked that Worthington officials are trying to turn us all to eating meat.
At least one member of our family will have turkee slices for the holidays. My mom sent several cans back to Taiwan with Oriona when she came to visit in September. I sure hope Ryan rations them!
