In the early days, since becoming vegetarian  and now vegan I have always referred to my Thanksgiving menu as a Harvest Day Celebration or Harvest Menu, it is the term I began using when printing out the menus for the big feast. Being the planner that I am, our menu is developed and printed about a month or two in advance. Even though the gathering is small there is always plenty of amazing compassionate dishes to share with anyone that would like to join us, along with good company and loads of laughs. Some years it is simply Justin and I with family joining us for dessert, other times a few adventurous family members who soon realize after one thanksgiving meal at our house you can have a pretty amazing feast without the turkey.


Today I would love to share with you our menu for the big day

"Harvest Day Celebration"

Farm house rolls with maple herb "butter" {variation of this}
 Butternut squash & apple bisque {link}
Acorn squash & quinoa stuffing {link}
Field Roast & wild mushroom bread stuffing
Brown sugar chipotle roasted root vegetables
Traditional mashed potatoes
Garlicky Green Beans
Herb Gravy
Cranberry Chutney
Assorted mini pies & desserts {variations of this, this, this & this
Farnum Hills extra dry hard apple cider

It may seem like a lot for a few guests, however Thanksgiving leftovers are also a pretty big deal around our house; you can never have too much of a good thing.
