    Yup! Last night I had a dream that I got to hold her. She looked like a tiny newborn mini-Grace! Only she wasn't ornery all the time like Grace was (poor thing had gnarly reflux).
    Due date is Jan 13 and OB said my blood sugar/diabetes is under such good control that they shouldn't need to take her before 39 weeks (I had Grace at 37/38 wks).

    Anyway, back to cooking! Who else needs help?

    *NOM* I'm actually not sure about the bacon... and the way I love bacon, that's saying something! I agree with others that you might need some additional liquid for the right texture... yum!

    really? a culinary genius such as yourself has not heard of the wondrous garam masala!? It's an Indian spice... kind of exotic and delicious... I LOVE it on roasted veggies... maybe with some sea salt and a spicy pepper tossed in. mmmmm.

    ^ This!

    Oh I'm aware of it, I've just never used it before. We don't do a whole lot of Indian cooking in our house. And, I know, shame on me after all the bragging I do about how proud I am to have such a well stocked spice cabinet!

    fwiw, bacon, apples, squash, and onion is pretty much a bomb-proof combination. GET SOME PIGGY IN THAT SOUP!

    take my word for it - it's amazeballs... I was ALL about garam masala brussels sprouts recently (and I will admit to seasoning decidedly unprimal stove-popped popcorn with it previously)...
    I'm guessing you have the ingredients for it - cumin pepper cinnamon, cardamom, cloves and mace (says my bottle of garam masala, anyway)
    and... bacon apples squash onion... *NOM* I think it's the garam masala that threw off the bacon for me. hmmm...

    I have everything except the mace. I always chuckle when I pass by it in the store. It's not exactly something I would think to put in my food.

    I'm currently working my way through the garam masala that I brought back from India. It is the bomb.

    Sooooo... coordinating our side dishes is going to be interesting. The bird takes up our whole oven, and we still need to cook our mash, roast root veggies, corn bread, and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies (and/or loaf). Oh and pie. The man says the bird can be taken out and rest an hour before dinner and everything else can be cooked at that time.
    Me being the eager beaver made the corn bread batter, but it won't be able to go in to the oven for another 2 hours. Genius. Trying to figure out how to keep it moist. Hmmm... I might add some applesauce before going in if it needs it.

    Big thank you to everyone for their input!

    Thanks to the great recipes on theclothesmakethegirl/, Paleo Diet Lifestyle | paleo diet tips and recipes, http://nomnompaleo.com/, and the wonderful input of everyone here....Turkey Day was a success!

    My non-Primal family and I had a delicious dinner of Bacon Butternut Squash Soup (with a touch of garam masala. so freaking good despite being nearly mashed-potato-like in consistency.), goat-cheese-stuffed-mushrooms, coconut flour cheddar biscuits, roast sweet potatoes, the bird (of course), cranberry sauce, various odds and ends, and, to top it off, pumpkin spice cake rolls.

    Thank you!
