|Daphne ~ Isn't she beautiful?|
We are so very lucky to have open-minded families who are willing to "give up" the traditional turkey dinner to join us for a compassionate Thanksgiving. We have so much to be thankful for, and first on the list are the beautiful hearts of these wonderful people.
It's not like our guests will be suffering though! Our Compassionate Thanksgiving meal will have all the wonderful and traditional flavors that everyone so looks forward to. I am still surprised at the doubters who think that by not having animal products in a meal, all traces of a yummy Thanksgiving are lost. So not true BFF!!
So what is on the menu, you ask? Here it is...and if you want the recipes, just ask!
- Field Roast (turkey substitute made from whole grains)
- Mashed potatoes
- Mushroom gravy
- Butternut squash & apple casserole
- Roasted Brussels sprouts
- Homemade cranberry sauce
- Pumpkin cheesecake
- Pumpkin pie
