      Current plan (could change):

      Duck leg confit
      Oyster "stuffing" (oysters, rice, pecans, onions, mushrooms)
      Strawberry/orange 'sauce'
      Duck fat french fries
      Cheese plate w/pepperoncini
      Salted nuts w/cayenne (pistachios, cashews, pecans)
      Campari

      I'm missing a green veggie, so I might ditch the rice stuffing and roast something. OTOH, it's a holiday, so I might not.

        All you guys not being the lone primal in a house of CW worshipers have it easy. I'm jealous that you can plan a fully primal feast like that. I made the mere suggestion and got resoudly "booed."

        Some of us don't have it so easy.

The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

            I offered to do all the cooking myself. They KNOW I'm capable. But pooed the idea anyway. *sigh*

                Those making a paleo stuffing would you share your recipes. I am stuck trying to decide between conventional corn bread stuffing or a faileo version of cornbread stuffing. But perhaps there is a better way. My dh really can't have any grains and I would hate to end the day on a terrible note if I poison him with grain. Is there a non grain option?

                    I've made this and its good.... Low carb stuffing. Seriously. ~ Stuff I Make My Husband

                    But if you have your own corn bread stuffing recipe you could just use the "corn bread" part of this recipe and combine it with yours

                      Just as much turkey and potatoes as I can cram down my throat. And probably some vegetables to keep it interesting.

                      Screw elaborate recipes

                          nothing, as we are in NZ and they don't do that here, so neither do we. Also, a turkey costs something like $80 or more, and that's just silly.

                            Nothing than my usual dinner because my family doesn't do thanksgiving. Can't miss what you never had. I might just buy a roast chicken and eat the entire thing by myself in the spirit of the season though.

                              It is silly indeed for a rather dry and tasteless bird. Money better spent on bacon. Or roast pig. I'm partial to pork, in case you can't tell.
