An Alternative Menu for Thanksgiving

green — by Johanna

The other day I put together an alternative Thanksgiving menu together with Anna Brones, just because we like to share great recipes from some of our favorite food sites (check out the links below). I also suggest you read the story about Anna’s turkey struggles last year over at Foodie Underground.

Blini with Cranberry Orange Salsa
Bite-sized Porcini Tarts
Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Dried Figs and Thyme
Fennel and Celery Root Soup

Happy Thanksgiving!

    We made the apple gingerbread cake and it is delicious!! (Although I’d probably call it a ginger molasses brownie) :) thanks for the ideas!

  3. Johanna:

    Great to hear you liked the cake Pamela!

  4. Sara @ The Cozy Herbivore:

    Good gracious, the combination of roasted fingerling potatoes and dried figs made me smack my lips with glee. I really can’t wait to give that dish a whirl! This whole menu really sounds delicious.
