Overall I was pretty pleased with the Thanksgiving Menu.
I think that next year I will add a soup and remove the generic salad (since no one touched a single bite!).
Otherwise, I think it was pretty successful.
Our dinner included:
Butternut squash and roasted onion phyllo tartlets
Cranberry Challah Stuffing
Cranberry & Apple Chutney
Green Beans with roasted shallots & fennel
Mustard & Cumin Roasted Potatoes
Sweet Potato Casserole
Green salad with walnuts and cranberries
Butternut squash ravioli w/ sage ‘butter’ sauce
Pareve Pumpkin Pie
Mexican Apple Pie
If it sounds like a lot of food..well that’s because it was!
I also apparently went on a huge cranberry kick! Gotta love those antioxidants!
We had a ton of leftovers, which I turned into 2 pot pies.
I used the same pie crust recipe that I had used for the pumpkin pie, and it tastes great with either savory or sweet fillings.
Pictures and a few recipes to come!
