You know all those pictures of Adam and Eve where they have belly button? Think about it..................... take as long as you need........................
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.

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.
