Today’s Forky Friday is all about getting you ready for Turkey Day!
Yes, I know Thanksgiving’s still days away, but it’s not too early to get crackin’—especially if your frozen turkey still needs to be thawed. Besides, the weekend’s the perfect time to get a head start on the ginormous feast you’ll be devouring come Thursday. Ideally, you can prep most of your sides beforehand so you can focus on the turkey on Thanksgiving.
Me? I’ll be reporting to work at the hospital on Thursday night, so I’ll miss the holiday fun—but you can still enjoy the nomtastic Turkey Day menu I put together for you!
To recap, here are the festive autumn dishes you should prepare (or strong-arm your friends and family into making for you):
Butterflied Big Bird (Spatchcocked Thanksgiving Turkey)
Warm Brussels Sprouts Slaw with Asian Citrus Dressing
Paleo Cran-Cherry Sauce
Roasted Garlic Autumn Mash
Paleo Pumpkin, Coconut, & Maple Custard Cups
