Thanksgiving Dinner Menu

Thanksgiving is a time for family, good home-cooked food and remembering all we have to be thankful for. This year my family has much to be thankful for. As with every year, we will extend our gratitude and thanks to the One who provides our needs.
Give thanks to the LORD for he is good—his faithful love endures forever. Psalm 107:1
Here is my menu for Thanksgiving Day. Letting you know helps me wrap my head around exactly what I'll be doing.
  • Meatless Stuffed "Turkey"—Since I don't eat meat. May sound strange, but it's really very tasty. Stuffed with brown rice and spices. Trader Joe's and Tofurkey (including vegan gravy) are two brands I've prepared.
  • Steamed Blue Lake Green Beans—KISS certified. Always good on the holiday table.
  • Shallot and Goat Cheese Mashed Potatoes—This is one my husband modified from a recipe to make it my version of vegan (using goat cheese). Isn't he wonderful?
  • Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges—I like to prepare sweet potatoes/yams differently each year so I'm roasting them this year.
  • Mixed greens with Dried Cranberries & Pecans—Tossed with a homemade apple cider vinegar and olive oil dressing.
  • Orange Zest Cranberry Sauce—The meal is not complete without this yummy addition to Thanksgiving.
  • Vegan Pumpkin "Cheesecake"—A return from last year by popular demand.
  • Vegan Chocolate Pudding—I just posted this recipe. With the ingredients being on hand, I thought I'd add some chocolate for dessert.
What's on the menu for your Thanksgiving?
