A Thanksgiving meal is a perfect occasion to showcase the variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables available at this time of the year, including winter squashes, cabbage, pomegranates, mandarin oranges, and cranberries. There are so many ways to present these foods in a meal! For example, the salad in this sumptuous spread brings together both sweet and sour fruits. This bounteous Thanksgiving menu combines two traditional dishes (Mashed Potatoes and Gravy and Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf) and three newcomers (Autumn Vegetable Stew, Rice Casserole with Lentils and Sauteed Vegetables, and Radicchio Salad with Cranberry Orange Dressing), to create an all-around hearty meal that should please everyone at the table. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
