In the Dining Room
The Thanksgiving feast begins with a choice of Butternut Squash Soup or Seasonal Organic Mixed Green Salad, followed by Oven Roasted Turkey with all of the delicious and hearty traditional accompaniments: mashed potatoes and gravy, apple chestnut stuffing, sweet potato and butternut squash gratin with marshmallow topping, fresh vegetable and cranberry sauce. Dessert choices include the luscious Pumpkin Pie, delectable Pecan Pie and mouth-watering Double Chocolate Cake. Fish entrees will be available for those who would prefer an alternative to turkey.

Your family and friends will be delighted with the juicy Roasted Turkey with Gravy (whole services 10-14 people, $110; half serves 5-7 people, $60); Apple Sage Stuffing (quart serving 4-6 servings, $14); and homemade Sausage and Giblet Stuffing (quart serving 4-6 people, $24).
