    I'm making all my primal favorites:
    -turkey, of course
    -sweet potato, diced, roasted in coconut oil with pumpkin pie spice and salt
    -cauliflower, shredded, sauteed till golden in coconut oil and some salt
    -a whole onion, head of garlic, and acorn squash roasted, then blended with bone broth for soup
    -roasted brussels sprouts with almonds and mushrooms

    Not sure what my dessert will be yet. But, I'm making bacon-wrapped, bleu cheese-stuff dates for an appetizer. Maybe I'll have one or two...

    I will probably stay away from the most egregious offenders such as corn pudding and bread/rolls if they make an appearance, but otherwise, I plan not to be too anal about it.

    I will be cooking an amazing primal feast. There will be no wheat but there will be dairy, primal pumpkin pie, haven't decided yet if I'll make mashed sweet potatoes or white potatoes. The gravy is always the biggest hit. I always debone the turkey before cooking and use the bones to make stock a day or 2 in advance, that way we have plenty of flavorful stock to deglaze the roasting pan and make the delicious gravy.

    My family doesn't do Thanksgiving and holidays. I've never had a Thanksgiving or holiday dinner in my life. I'm going to hit the gym early before it closes for the day, then spend the rest of the Thanksgiving sleeping/reading books/eating my usual dinner.

    Yeah, I'll probably eat anything and everything on the fourth Thursday and count it against my 20% (which for me is generally only 10% anyway, so what the hell).

    We always have a veggie platter to munch on up until dinner (even pre-primal), but last year we discovered some killer paleo stuffing, and this year I'm going to have it with roast root vegetables from everyday paleo, and parsnip turnip mash from make it paleo (or is it paleo comfort foods? I forget). Dessert may be gluten free pies, cuz the men folk want it or my favorite: dates stuffed with mascarpone and candied pecans. Hubby typically cooks the Thanksgiving meal. I buy the groceries. Don't try to come between the man and his bird. He gets cranky. I'm allowed to take care of the desserts & side dishes

    I'm going to buy or make a gluten-free breakfast bread to eat with cream cheese (like banana bread) so I can partake in our breakfast tradition without eating cinnamon rolls. I'll probably eat mashed white potatoes, if they are available. I might make a veggie-side of some kind. I'm making my own pie to share. Other than that, it should all be primal friendly (turkey & veggies) so I'm really not worried.
