I decided to host Thanksgiving dinner this year. It will be a lot of fun; it’s the first time that all of the cousins will be together. It will also be a great kitchen challenge. I’ll be preparing a gluten-free and vegetarian meal!

Here’s the menu:

Thanksgiving Dinner for 17

Wilted Kale Salad with red onions, olive oil, walnuts, feta

Scalloped Yams

Buttercup Squash Stuffed with Wild Mushroom Dressing (I’ll use gluten-free bread)

Steamed Green Beans

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Miso-Balsamic Gravy

Cosmopolitan Cranberry Sauce

Fresh-Baked Artisan Bread (gluten-free)

Pumpkin Pie with Pecan (gluten-free crust)

Blackberry Pie
