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.
Eggnog cranberry fudge?! Are you willing to share this recipe?
My Paleo dessert: chocolate fudge coconut bars!
Just what the Pilgrims ate.

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
I'm definitely gonna be destroying these marshmallow candied sweet potatoes though!!
broccoli and carrots with butter
Ham (later on in the week but meant for turkey day)
I knew I was going to be a horrible little Grokette today, and I had a pumpkin spice cake pop and later I will have more sweet potatoes. I also had a literal spoonfull of stuffing. Wasn't as good as it used to be but those sweet potatoes man. They are hard to not eat.
Cornish Game Hen
Mashed Sweet Potato
All for me yay.
Except for that half cup of soy bean oil mayo my green bean casserole recipe called for (I was too lazy and busy to make home made mayo for just that, and one serving has probably less than a Tb Sp.) my Thanksgiving diner was all Primal. Can't go wrong with fresh organic, young roasted turkey and mashed cauliflower. Yum!
I didn't get home cooked food, I had to work, but luckily I work in a restaurant. I had turkey, ham, potatoes, and green beans. And, yes... I had a piece of pumpkin pie. I haven't had sugar in quite some time so I don't feel bad about it at all. Happy Thanksgiving primal friends :)
