Anyone else have an organic Thanksgiving?

Our Thanksgiving feast was nearly 100% organic, and maybe 85% local. The only non-organic things I used were French's fried onions for the casserole and jet puffed marshmallows! If anyone knows of organic alternative brands, please let me know. I almost switched out the onion for organic crackers, but I so prefer those deliciously crispy onions! I've tried making them myself before but always fail. Personally I would have done without the marshmallows, but the boyfriend insisted.

The menu was:

sweet potato and acorn squash casserole w/ marshmallows
broccoli, barley, and cheese casserole w/ french's onions
local turkey legs with a maple chili glaze
mashed potatoes with garlic and dill
braised mixed greens - chard, bok choy, and spinach
pan dripping gravy

Nearly all of our veggies came from our first winter CSA pickup!

Hope everyone else's Thanksgiving was as delicious and relaxing as ours!


  • Hi Havalinaaa,

    We had an organic Thanksgiving - and also Vegan! EVERYTHING was homemade from fresh, raw ingredients.

    The menu was:

    Sweet Potato Soup
    Almond Feta Cheese with Crackers
    Roasted Vegetables
    Cranberry Sauce
    Mashed Potatoes
    Green Beans

    The desserts were Apple and Pumpkin Pie (the pumpkin pie was not vegan).

    It was delicious!
