    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

      Do bears shit in the woods?

        Try the Enjoy Life brand. A little more primal/paleo friendly than some of the other stuff out there. I really like Scharffenberger, too

          Adding chocolate chips would mean an extra trip to the grocery store. I have everything else. I might just get Trader Joe's brand since I will be there. Trying to keep shopping to a minimum since I'm sure it'll be crazy with last minute shoppers over the next couple of days, but I have to go out tonight anyway.

            Going to relatives, and hoping for turkey, greenbean casserole and maybe a nother veggie choice. I have made being vegetaran work on get togethers...being primal I can only hope for the best. Eat what I will let myself and be grateful for the time with family and the food.

            Kid of considering fasting the day after, but haven't set that in stone.

              Whatever we're all eating, let's give thanks we're not vegetarians.

                What I'm making and what I'm eating are two different things. Making:

                Brined turkey
                mushroom/proscuitto stuffing (with gluten bread)- not eating
                mashed sweet potato bake
                triple cranberry sauce
                good old fashioned green bean casserole! Fun family tradition
                canned jellied cranberry lump for my brother who won't grow up
                mashed baby red potatoes- won't eat
                carrot souffle
                salad
                pumpkin pie- won't eat
                pumpkin bars- won't eat
                something chocolate- won't eat
                Paleo chocolate fudge coconut bars
                cheese/cracker plate- eating cheeses
                parmesan artichoke dip- not eating
                wine- I really don't drink anymore

                20+ people coming to my house. Two of them are actually gluten free, but will dump it all by the wayside on holidays, weekends, and other special occasions.

                    Thanks for the recipe links. I think I will be trying more than one just in case! Apparent;y, stuffing is critical and I screwed it up last year. We are having Turkey, gravy (flourless), a type of stuffing or two, mashed potatoes (for my daughter), cranberry jelly for my husband, in addition to cut up butternut squash, apple, cranberry, pecan or walnut and maple syrup and nutmeg roasted in the oven. And three people want three different types of pie so I am flipping a coin so we don't end up od'ing on pie. Whatever pie I choose will have a crust made from almonds and pecans ground up with some cinnamon, maple sugar, and melted butter ( yum!) I may possibly make Elana's pantry grain free rolls but not sold on that idea yet. We will be going for a long walk in the am and hopefully, weather permitting a bike ride at some point in the day.

                        Since Thanksgiving was started as a harvest festival to celebrate putting away food for the winter, and it's spring in New Zealand... no wonder.

                        I haven't decided whether to have my own pre-made lunch of chicken soup or to go to the local church and help out.

                              I'm basing it on this recipe, but I'm melting down some ghiradelli egg nog chocolate squares
                              White Chocolate Peanut, Pretzel, & Chocolate Chip Fudge

                              I'll be replacing the 4c of powdered sugar obviously, and probably cutting the recipe in 1/2 (oh and omitting the peanuts and replacing them with dried cranberries, and using gluten free pretzels)

                                So, the day has come.

                                Today, Groks all over America will sit down, with families and friends by their sides. They will face the heathen of carbs, starch, and disgusting oils processed from the most vile processes imaginable. They will watch their friends and family fall, one by one, into the temptation of those disgusting monsters. Then their time will come, will they be able to handle it, or will they fall, on this tragic day
