Frugal Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup -- Mostly Gluten Free, Vegan, and Healthy

Thanksgiving is almost here! Some of you may have prepared your menu and did all your shopping already, while others of you more last minute types may not have your menu together yet. So for those of you who haven't already prepared, I've put together a round up of Thanksgiving dinner type recipes from my blog throughout the years. Nearly all of them are healthy recipes, without processed ingredients. They're all frugal. Most are gluten free, and a good chunk of them are vegan too.

Hopefully you'll like them as much as my family did!

I want to apologize for the bad pictures. Over the years I've learned how to photograph better, but when I started, the pictures were pretty awful to be honest. In addition to that, a website I used to use to host my photos for free then started charging, I paid them, then they started charging an exorbitant amount, which I refused to pay, so they're holding my pictures hostage. So I apologize in advance. If I had the time and the energy and the desire to, I could go back and take my photos that I took over the years off that site and put them here instead, but honestly, that's never gonna happen, I have better things to do with my life.
