Thanksgiving Recipe Ideas...

The past week or so I've been thinking of adding some Thanksgiving appropriate posts to the sidebar, or somewhere on my homepage. I wanted them to be easy to access when people are in the planning stages of their holiday menus. But, I was having trouble getting it all to fit & work the way I wanted. Then, while visiting a blogger friend's site {Hi Winnie!}, I noticed she had done a round-up type of post, showcasing everything she had that would be Thanksgiving friendly. I thought...that's what I was looking for!
So, here are some recipes from over the past several years, which would work well for your Thanksgiving feast. Some are traditional, some are not. Some would be great as side dishes, some as a main course option for any vegetarians out there. Then, of course, some desserts!

Fall Bruschetta,
Roasted Shrimp Cocktail, Grilled Baba Ghanoush, Mini Crab Cakes, Harvest Pumpkin Soup & Crudités with Ranch Dip

Main Course & Sides:
Mashed Sweet Potatoes, Chestnut Stuffing with Leeks & Apples, Shallot & Goat Cheese Tart, Ham & Asparagus Strata, Garlic Roasted Cauliflower, Buttermilk Biscuits, Roasted Caprese Salad, Warm Orzo Salad with Beets & Greens, Fennel & Orange Salad, Creamed Spinach, Wheat Berry, Date & Walnut Salad, Yukon Gold & Sweet Potato Gratin,
Arugula Salad with Lemon-Parmesan Dressing,
Bulgur Salad with Wilted Chard & Green Olives & Caesar Salad

Guinness Stout Ginger Cake, Apple Crisp, Pumpkin Purée {to make your Pumpkin Pie from scratch}, Rustic Apple Crostata, Red Wine Cake & Pineapple Upside Down Cake

I hope to cram in a few final recipes this week...
Have a great Thanksgiving!
