I am so thankful for our community of plant-based food lovers. This has been a great project launch this year, and that is all because of you! It’s exciting to watch our readership become more engaged every week. Thank you!
We begin today with an overview of the menu. Use the green button to go directly to the recipe. After that is a link to a complete shopping list for the whole meal. Finally, I am posting my cooking plan, if you would find it helpful to see my approach to Feast Day. Enjoy your time in the kitchen! And enjoy breaking bread as you love on the important people in your life.
To your health! Chef Leander
Classic Waldorf Salad
Apples, celery and walnuts make a great appetizer or desert.
Beets à l’ Orange
Simple, earthy beets poached in orange juice. Yummy!
Garlic Mushroom Scalloped Potatoes
Classic comfort food. Easy to make, and well worth the extra effort.

Mormor’s Authentic Swedish Meatballs
Just like granny’s! …except from the freezer…shhh!
Simon and Garfunkel Mushroom Gravy

NEW! Chef Leander’s Cooking Plan
One of the best ways to relieve stress on a big meal is to have a “countdown” plan for the meal. I’ve made one for you and you can find it at this link: 2021 Kitchen Countdown
It lists the dishes that can be made in advance, and then gives you a Thursday countdown for all the prep and cook times. I hope you find it helpful.
