We're having Thanksgiving dinner at our house so we can prepare the foods that I can legally eat. THEN, after the people we invite show up for dinner, we will tell them why we wanted dinner at our house...in a nice and very respectful way. (I may sin a little, I do very much enjoy cornbread oyster dressing.)

Sometimes I feel like a former smoker in smokers' lounge, a recovering alcoholic in a bar.
This chili recipe is one of several I saw when I decided to make some chili one day. I combined the different ingredients of all the recipes and what I didn't have I substituted. I didn't have pumpkin, but I had avocados, so they went in. I still haven't tried it with the pumpkin.

How did it turn out? Of course, my husband would say you didn't actually try the pumpkin recipe...

Actually, one could use any cooked and pureed vegetable in place of the pumpkin. I do this often when making soup because it will thicken up the soup. Although I've never tried avocado.

I like it with avocados, I figured pumpkin was just a thickener, and avocados have more fat.

Hi, a newbie here and I am terrified of Thanksgiving, usually my most precious holiday because of the idea of being grateful. I have been doing Keto for about 8 weeks and it is going wonderful, but I am wondering if someone could point me to there keto cheesecake and the chili recipes? Thanks for all for the positive conversation, it is inspiring.

@skypeace Our Recipe section has both these dishes. If you do a search in that section for "cheesecake" or "chili" there should be several choices for you.

Recipes Forum

Also, have you found the meal threads in the Diet and Nutrition Forum where we post what we are eating. Lots of ideas there - and many would fall into the keto category.

My wife makes this for us on special occasions...my 'adult' kids like it better than traditional cheese cake!

Cheese Cake-Low Carb Page 4
Ingredients:
24 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup extra-fine whole milk ricotta cheese (to refine, process in a food processor for 1 minute)
1/2 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cups sugar substitute (recommended: Splenda)
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon no sugar added vanilla extract
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 eggs
3 egg yolks
Special Equipment: 1 (8-inch) spring-form cake pan
Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Spray the spring-form pan with nonstick vegetable oil cooking spray. Set aside. In a shallow roasting pan big enough to fit the cake pan, pour about 1-inch of water and place it on the center rack of the oven to preheat.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat softened cream cheese, ricotta, sour cream and sugar substitute on low speed for about 1 minute until well blended.
In a separate bowl, using a wire whisk, mix heavy cream, vanilla, lemon juice, eggs, and egg yolks until blended.
Turn the mixer on medium speed, and slowly pour the egg mixture into the cream cheese mixture. Beat just until blended and then turn off; be careful not to over-whip.
Pour batter into the greased springform pan. Place pan into the heated water bath. Bake for 15 minutes, and then lower the oven temperature to 275 degrees F. Continue baking for 1 1/2 hours, or until top is light golden brown and cake is pulling away from the sides of the pan. Turn the oven off when finished cooking and leave the cake in the oven to cool for 3 more hours. (This will keep the cake nice and tall.) Then remove cake and refrigerate before serving. Serve chilled.
Total Time: 10 hr 15 min
Prep: 30 min, Inactive: 8 hr
Cook: 1 hr 45 min

@div2live
Thanks for the quick response. My daughter is going to freak out when I make this cheese cake for her and I.
