I've been an avid reader of Allie Brosh's blog Hyperbole and a Half since the inception and was one of those things that I also wished I thought of making silly drawings of my family.
As I was driving home from work, I heard a story on NPR with new suggestions for Thanksgiving dishes from The Bitten Word.
My mom had this rule, "I'll only make chili with month's containing the letter R" because June, July & August were off limits because chili is such a hearty dish.

Meatless Monday: Lentil Curry
from Everyday Food
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons curry powder
1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
1 head cauliflower (2 1/2 pounds), stemmed and separated into florets
1 cup brown lentils, picked over, well rinsed, and drained
2 cans (14.5 ounces each) diced tomatoes with juice
Plain low-fat yogurt, for serving (optional)
In a nonstick Dutch oven (5-quart pot with a tight-fitting lid), heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 7 minutes.
Add curry powder; cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Stir in sweet potatoes, cauliflower, lentils, tomatoes and their juice, and 1 1/2 cups water; season with salt.
Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer; cover, and cook until lentils and sweet potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes. Serve immediately with yogurt, if desired.
