    What are you cooking for Thanksgiving?

    Hi All,

    It is the Grand Prix of all cooking days and a chance for us all to show off to our friends and loved ones.

    What are you cooking?

    I don't do the big stinking bird. Instead I cook up a (saute) pan full of Turkey Thighs in butter, onion, garlic, parsley, basil, rosemary, thyme.

    I am going to cook the thighs on top of mushrooms as a mock stuffing, then make a cream cause out of the mushrooms and dripping. Couldn't find any asparagus this year, so I will be sauteing green beans in butter and garlic a a mock asparagus.

    For desert, I am thinking of coconut pancakes with a butter, blueberry topping.

    Happy Thanksgiving all!

    Whole turkey breast (pasture raised), cornbread (gluten free) stuffing with sausage and cranberries, slow cooker green bean casserole (no soup or goofy onions, uses cream and some parmesan), baked sweet potatoes with butter and pecans, cranberry sauce ( yeah, organic) crust less pumpkin pie. Yum!

    Sound very traditional! Yum! Love the sound of the slow cooked green beans.

    Got some Organic Blackberries from Trader Joe's last week with eyes on a butter and fruit spread (cook the berries in the butter). Only problem was that Trader Joe's like to pick their Organic produce way too green. Although the berries "looked" good, they tasted like "cough drops". YUK!

    Remember to show off a bit! This is the day!

    Spatchcocked turkey, Cran-cherry sauce, Mac and cheese, coconut flour stuffing with bacon, Brussels sprouts with bacon, paleo dinner rolls, banana pudding, and pecan pie. I think that's everything.

    I prepped most of it today. I'm beat!

    Everything is gluten free and only high quality milk, cream, and cheese.

    Too much! Others are covering bird and beverages.

    • cranberries (squeezed/zested valencia orange for sweetener)
    • root roast (beet, turnip, rutabaga in duck fat and ACV)
    • mashed chestnuts (w/ stock, butter, fresh sage)
    • pumpkin pie (arrowroot crust, maple crystals for sweetener)
    • quince ice cream
