We are having: Turkey for the hoipoloi, I have a Quorn roast with celery, turnips and onions; Cauli mash, mushroom sour cream gravy for me, turkey gravy likely for the rest, peas, brussels sprouts, and Mrs. Shottlebop's famous pumpkin pie, with eryth and coconut milk, one with pecans on top, one without, and of course whipped cream!

We'll be having prime rib & cauli mashies in a coupla/three hours, but I've already gotten in trouble . . . Chloe's mama gave her a snack (a banana) between breakfast & dinner - I happened to be whipping cream at the moment & Chloe asked if it was yogurt. I explained what it was & offered her a taste which she approved heartily. I then gave her a coupla spoonfuls & told her dunk her banana in the whipped cream. Unfortunately for me, she ate the whipped cream & left the banana. I later overheard her mama telling her she must eat the banana - that the intent was that she have something 'good' to eat, not whipped cream. But I held my tongue like any good mother-in-law . . .

I know Shanny. I have 3 sons and 1 daughter-in-law, and I always said I would make a concerted effort to get on with the girls. My tongue is sore from all the biting:rolleyes.

What can I say when the one brings me carrot cake. Thankyou?

Da bird is in da oven - fixing it a bit differently this year - what is IN the cavity is onion, celery, apple, orange and all the kewl spices. Just remembered I "forgot" to include carrot in there. Poured chicken broth over and Diet Ginger Ale as well inside. Recipe called for champagne. My choice will work fine. Tucked fresh sage, rosemary, and thyme and butter under the skin on breast. Oh well. I did make Pepperidge Farm stuff(ing) for guests. Made a fruit salad last night - fresh pineapple, papaya, raspberries - no sweetener needed. Needs to sit over night in fridge. Also made cranberry sauce w/ sweetener added after cooking. Didn't do yams - did get some ready made smashed taters. Purchased pumpkin pie and whipped cream.

Guest is bringing green bean casserole. I will be nice and have a teeny tiny bit.

I will enjoy every morsel of that bird!!!!!! Oh yeah!!!!!!!!!

It's over. Hubby and I were on our own today, but we had a real treat. We had sliced turkey breast from Whole Foods (why cook a bird when there's only two to eat). I had some turkey broth that I spooned over it. We also had green beans and stuffing* and SF cranberry relish.

*Homemade LC stuffing: I'm so happy with my experiment. I took my faux cornbread recipe and added stuffing type seasonings to the dough - boy did it smell good baking. Then crumbled it up and dried it out in the toaster oven, added broth and margarine (can't have butter) and put it in the toaster over to heat up. (This was a small amount 'cause it was an experiment). Turned out really good. Wish I had made more (wish I could remember exactly what I did!!)

Made Shanny's pumpkin pie and a SF LC pecan pie (from a post DF).

We are stuffed!

Counting blessings..... Diabetes Forum comes to mind.

Husband stuffed the 16 lb turkey with apples and lemon slices and was quite pleased with how it came out.

My son liked eating the pieces apple after dinner. He also liked the turnips I roasted with curry spices, with my Quorn roast! I used celery, turnip and onion wedges, made a marinade of ginger, garlic, olive oil, lime juice, curry powder, extra cayenne, coriander, turmeric ... it came out lovely!

I may have just enjoyed the best part of the rib roast . . . a big ol' rib to gnaw on! OWC caught me at it & now he's grawing one too!

Sorry, MCS...I had a wonderful meal of moist fried turkey, perfectly cooked green beans w/bacon, salad with tiny chopped apple, and more bacon crumbled up dressed with I know not what, a big spoon of chicken and bread/cornbread dressing w/gravy and some of all of the goodies like ham, a taste of a decent tasting cranberry relish and 3 glasses of wine over 4 hours and even just a touch of a Paula Deen recipe for peach cobbler and at about 1/2 hr after eating BG was 103 and still is at 3 hrs, so maybe I got away with it! I'll check before I go to bed and in the morning I'll just see, but I was thrilled at how it went. I wish I could have tested at 30 min. because I hear that flour peaks after 15 min. The only thing I passed on were the wonderful homemade rolls, but I did eat some of a 'pizza' bread dipped in marinara sauce. It had pepperoni and mozz. cheese baked inside little biscuit balls baked like monkey bread. Sure was good!
