Autumn Wine Tasting and Plant Based Food Pairing

On this lovely, blustery fall day, we were lucky to gather with some of our closest friends and family to enjoy an afternoon of wine tasting and food pairing.

See the menu here...all plant based!

I didn't even think of it being vegan, but it was! Everything was delicious, in my opinion. Others said they liked it too and even asked for the recipes....It was great to see what pairs really well with the foods we love...

Creamy Butternut Squash Soup Shots

Roasted Fall Vegetables
Chocolate Ganache Cake

All the recipes or sources are here:

Little Ones with Mamas

I don't know about you, but I love to see baby animals with their mamas!

Look at the love in this pic! So sweet and adorable, they are just like human animals in that they feel and want love from each other.

A little reminder to me of why I eat a plant based diet and why that makes me so happy!
