The soup menu changes at the McClelland's but Thanksgiving always begins with a big pot of something seasonal and delicious. Butternut-Citrus Soup with Bay Scallops and Mushrooms is a rich squash soup offering.
Frank McClelland sister Cathy's Pecan Pie is a holiday favorite and a delicious way to end the meal.
Thanksgiving sides include Pommes Purees, Braised Red Cabbage with Apples, Apple Street Farm Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Shallots and Bacon.
