VeganMoFo: Fall Dinner Party
A couple weekends ago, I was invited to an incredible fall-themed dinner party with friends. We all got together to prepare the meal, having a blast cooking, laughing, and eating in the kitchen. My plate, at top, featured a spicy and delicious mug of chili, roasted acorn and butternut squash, rice crackers dipped in the most wonderful homemade tahini sauce, and roasted beets and Brussels sprouts.
Appetizers, including two varieties of homemade hummus and homemade dolmas.
Homemade tahini sauce.
Roasted squash right out of the oven.
Fruity chocolate truffles.
I brought the crustless Chocolate Pumpkin Pie I make annually for Thanksgiving.
Dessert was S'mores with Dandies marshmallows roasted over the fire pit, Endangered Species Dark Chocolate Halloween Treats, and Health Valley amaranth graham crackers.
I can't imagine a better way to spend a Friday night in autumn.
