I spend Thanksgiving with family eating a meal steeped in nostalgia. While I love it, I do miss getting to share the spirit with friends... and it would be nice to prepare something besides the traditional turkey and stuffing. I'd love to gather my urban family together outside under the changing leaves for a festive harvest brunch. Here's how I'd toast to great company and Autumn's bounty:
