YCEW Thanksgiving Round-Up 2011

It's that time again!  Thanksgiving is around the corner, and boy am I excited.  I've been cooking up delicious fall meals for weeks in anticipation of my favorite holiday table, and now it's time to share possible recipes with you.  In this year's round-up you'll find many vegetarian/vegan items for your specialty guests as well.

Please be safe whether you're dining at family member's and friends' homes or eating out at your favorite restaurant.  Remember, if you've been invited somewhere, make sure that the host knows what your concerns are.  If you feel hesitant about the kitchen or the food then bring your own Thanksgiving meal packaged for yourself.  They invited you because they love your company, not because of what you eat!

Enjoy any one of these easy recipes and add them to your GF, allergy-friendly Turkey Day table.  You'll stuff yourself more than the turkey!

First Course:
Butternut Squash Soup with Leeks

Quick Bread:
Savory Biscuits

Alternative Main (for veggies)
Spaghetti Squash "Pasta" Bake


Sides:
Thanksgiving Fruit & Vegetable Medley
Parmesan Mashed Cauliflower (within post)
Butternut Squash Fries
Cranberry-Apple Chutney

Desserts:
Cranberry Tart
Pumpkin Applesauce Bundt Cake

Drink:
Spiced, mulled wine (within post)

Leftover Ideas:
Chicken & Biscuits (sub turkey)
Turkey with Snow Peas & Pickled Ginger

So what am I cooking this year?  Many of my past favorites and two new vegan desserts; if they succeed, they'll be up on the blog soon after.  

A very hearty Thanksgiving to all my wonderful readers!
