How Much F'ing Turkey Did You Make Anyways?

Vegetarian Plus Whole Vegan Turkey (Complete with a butthole for stuffing!)

So, seriously, for the week after Thanksgiving all you see on the news, and in pop-up ads all over the interwebs, are ways to use your leftover Turkey.  And all I kept thinking was, "Seriously?  How big of a f*ing turkey did you make that you need a butt ton of recipes to use up the leftovers?"  It's one of the amazing things about being vegan, you know?  Our food is so delicious, we don't have many leftovers, and when we do, we just eat them as, I dunno, leftovers!

So it was with much chagrin that I had to come up with a way to use up the majority of this impulse buy I made for a day after Thanksgiving celebration at my mommy's house.

Now I am not going to say that it tasted bad because it was fine, and I really do think that it is a great transition food for those looking to make the switch to a vegan lifestyle, but a slice or two at the most was more than plenty for me.  And since there was still pretty much the whole thing leftover I am now the one sitting here thinking what on earth am I going to do with all of this leftover vegan turkey?

So I made this...

Vegan Turkey Macaroni Salad 
Here's what's in it:
prepared salad macaroni
chopped up pieces of said vegan turkey
chopped celery
diced white onion
fresh chopped parsley

For the dressing:
sesame oil
dried dill
red chili flakes
black sesame seeds
salt and pepper
