Feeding the Active Writer

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving.  Today I being a bit of preparation work for the holiday cooking.

So, here's the menu:

Roast Turkey with Low-Carb Sausage Stuffing
Mashed Cauliflower and Gravy
Green Beans Sauteed with Bacon and Garlic
Port Wine Cranberry Sauce
Pumpkin Pudding with homemade whipped cream
No-Carb flaxmeal muffins (with butter)

And for my wife, candied sweet potatoes with marshmallows.

The night before, I make the stuffing and the turkey broth (using the giblets) for the gravy.

An additional bit, I cut the meat from the neck bone after making the broth and chop that, the gizzard, and the heart into fine bits which I mix into the gravy.

This has been our traditional Thanksgiving meal for years.  And while I like variety in what I eat, there's something to be said for tradition as well.

In any case, should you use any of these in your own celebrations, enjoy.

And here are the results:
