Thanksgiving Menu

I love big family meal get togethers. I cherish holidays with meaning. It is truly a blessing to be able to gather together and enjoy good, nourishing food with a family.

This year, I will be using (and some re-using) the following recipes for our day of Thanks:

Pear Cider Herbed Stuffing (using sprouted bread)

Garlic Parmesan Mashed Potatoes

Spice Brined Turkey

Green Italian Salad

Garlicy Green Beans

Praline Topped Squash (using this recipe for inspiration, but using sucanat, sprouted flour, and pastured dairy and eggs)

Orange Cranberry Sauce

Deviled Eggs

And for dessert my mom is bringing:

Pumpkin Pie

Vanilla Trifle Cake (coconut flour cake – using honey instead of agave, with pudding layered in with fresh berries and dark chocolate chunks)

Chocolate Truffle Cake

On Friday, we will be making canolis, an Italian family tradition. This will be my first time making them. My sweet Sicilian grandmother usually makes them. We also usually had lasagna with our Thanksgiving meal; but I think we will have to make that tradition for the day after from now on; to be enjoyed more fully.

Happy Thanksgiving! We have so much to be grateful for.
