Fall Feast

Like every holiday with the Ferrara’s, this Thursday we had a feast… for seven people.  I don’t mind though, since I am taking all of the leftovers back with me, if they last.  This year was a little bit different though, because about half of our offerings were completely vegan.  Although I do not live that lifestyle, it was interesting how we made most common Thanksgiving recipes totally vegan friendly.  This is our menu and some of my favorite pictures of the day.


  • Cream cheese and olive stuffed celery (my favorite)
  • Antipasto Course:
    • Lettuce, olive medley,  pickled vegetables, meats and cheese (vegan cheese too)

Main Course:

  • Smashed whipped potatoes (therefore vegan)
