So the faux thanksgiving was a reasonable success- a lot of work though! The menu got altered a bit, but everyone had plenty to eat regardless. So now onto the yummies!

The Cranberry soup, chestnut stuffing, pumpkin pie, and cranberry tart are all family favourites that have been made several times so I highly recommend them if you are looking for omnivore approved dishes. The stuffed squash was also excellent and definitely a recipe I would make again, but it is more of a full meal dish rather than a side dish (even my bottomliss pit brother wasn’t too hungry for other food after eating one stuffed half)
