Begin the Thanksgiving celebration with a choice of appetizer: warm Butternut Squash Soup or Organic Mixed Green Salad with Pumpkin Seeds, Parmesan, and Pomegranate and Balsamic Dressing. Highlighting seasonal produce, the salad offers a fresh taste of fall’s bounty.
Then, enjoy Prairie Grass Cafe’s classic Oven Roasted Turkey served with Mashed Potatoes and Homemade Gravy. Simple and straightforward, this traditional dish is great on its own and absolutely heavenly when paired with the four available sides. The Apple Chestnut Stuffing is a flavorful blend of savory and sweet tastes, while the creamy Sweet Potato and Butternut Squash topped with homemade marshmallow is the ultimate indulgence for those with a sweet tooth. Other sides include Fresh Vegetables and Cranberry Sauce.
End Thanksgiving festivities on a sweet note with a choice of dessert: Mom’s Pumpkin Pie, Pecan Pie or the decadent Double Chocolate Cake. Made in-house and inspired by a family recipe from Chef Sarah Stegner’s mother, Elizabeth, the transcendent pies make the dessert course truly special.
