There's some friends of mine who will do feasts if they know I'm cooking, 
because (even when I grumble) I make sure there is vegan food 
available.  Sometimes it just takes a different perspective on the meal 
from the one we walk in with.
I dug around, and sure enough, there's a webpage on making a vegan holiday 
meal for meat eaters. See? That could be a lot of fun, that way there's 
stuff that everybody can eat.


I'd be doing some substituting on some of those items though, as I know I 
don't have "rapadura" sugar for the spiced nuts.  The corn chowder looks 
quite awesome on it's own, and not hard to make at all.

So, good luck!!
