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

    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.
