Come On Out Turkeys… It’s Safe Now!
Today is Thanksgiving so I want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving Day! Since this is a holiday, and I certainly hope you are relaxing and enjoying your day with family and friends. And now, the turkeys can come out from hiding and enjoy tomorrow, which is truly their day to give thanks!
For as long as I can remember growing up, Thanksgiving Day was full of family, relatives and friends getting together to play games, watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, football and getting even more stuffed than the turkey!
Well, times for us have changed and our families are spread out, grown up, married or passed-on in some cases. So, now it is just the two of us enjoying a nice quiet Thanksgiving together. Some things don’t change however as we will still be watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, then football and a low(er)-carb Thanksgiving Turkey dinner, followed by dessert and a holiday movie! No more over-stuffing us as well as the turkey, those days are gone!
Here’s our menu:
- Natural organic turkey
- Mashed Potatoes (red potatoes, no salt)
- Gravy (homemade low-sodium, low-carb)
- Stuffing (low-carb made with pork rinds)
- Scandinavian Cranberry Chutney (blogged the recipe yesterday)
- Pumpkin Pie (homemade with crushed pecans low-carb crust and stevia)
We are very blessed and could not for a moment fit into this blog all that we are grateful for. For starters, we are very grateful for our health, our family, our friends, the roof over our heads, the food on the table, for me to have found my passion and a business I truly love, and for all of you! We are grateful for you!!!
So what was your favorite part of the meal, or the day?
