So to report on Thanksgiving:
The cabbage/onion/apple slaw was tasty but it wasn't what I wanted. It was difficult to pick out the apple and onion to keep it more keto and (read the directions next time, Steve) the cabbage was supposed to be cooked enough to wilt. Not the raw crunch and tartness I wanted. Delete that recipe -- or just make my own version of it.
The broccoli in cheese sauce, however, was a hit with everyone. Amazing what a cheese sauce made of real cheese and heavy whipping cream can do for broccoli. The recipe (from a fancy New York City restaurant) called for garnishing the dish with crushed-up orange cheese puffs. I put those on the side figuring I'd never get them out of my portion; next time I'll just remove my portion early and decorate decorate decorate. The cheese puff bits apparently were the gateway for everyone else to try it. They liked it. Keeper.
I successfully navigated past the mashed potatoes, the dressing, the green bean/carrot casserole, the dinner rolls, and all the pies. Probably too much turkey (and no skin for fat). I had one bite of the pumpkin pie on recommendation. It was good but it's amazing how sweet some foods seem after you haven't eaten sweet items for a while... My BG the next morning? In my normal range. I'm happy.
