Cranberry sauce tops my list of favorite foods. Last year I made this:


And I've made this one for a couple years:

I finely chop brussel sprouts, squash, zucchini into little chunks and then I toss in some olive oil with just a VERY little bit of sea salt. Put it in the oven at 400 degrees, roast for about 20-30 minutes, check on them, flip them, and then roast for another 20 minutes until your desired degree of doneness. I like them a little crunchy and crispy. And they are so good!

This year I may even try Mashed Cauliflower but I'll probably have a baked potatoe instead. I love baked potatoes with sour cream & chives.
emoticon I still haven't developed a taste for sweet potato.

Amber has chosen ham for this Thanksgiving. Last year it was BBQ'd ribs for Thanksgiving AND Christmas. I don't eat meat so it didn't really make a difference to me one way or another. And she loves pumpkin pie.

I make a small 'tart size' rhubarb pie for myself. Amber doesn't like it and I certainly don't need to eat a whole pie.

Anyway, that seems to be the menu:

Baked Potato & Mashed Cauliflower
Green Salad with cranberries & apple chunks
Cranberry Sauce
Stuffing--can't forget that!
Pumpkin Pie
Rhubarb Tart

    I love cranberry anything! Hagen Daz used to sell a cranberry sorbet during the holidays that was amazing but I haven't been able to find it the last few years.

    I hope you and Amber have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    Your meal sounds fantastic. I'm a huge rhubarb fan. We like mashed cauliflower, especially with a little goat cheese to add some flavor. The additions to blueberries to the cranberries also sounds delicious. Now I'm getting hungry!

    I'm not a meat either either, but the rest of it all sounds really good!

    It all sounds so yummy! My grandma used to make the grandkids tiny pies because so many of us couldn't agree on what we liked!

    Sounds delishhhhhhhhhhh emoticon

    I love the idea of adding blueberries to the traditional sauce, might try that for Christmas as we don't have Thanksgiving here in the UK. Thanks for the tip

    Have a great day Michele emoticon
