Does everyone have their Thanksgiving plans all set? Anybody stuck hosting a house full of people you despise? Sucks to be you.
We’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving at my in-laws’ yearly potluck. I haven’t finalized what I’m bringing but I think I’ll make endive spears stuffed with crab salad and garlic cauliflower mashed potatoes.
On Black Friday, we’re hosting a small party with friends and I’ll serve a Paleo-style Turducken Junior along with Paleo-friendly sides and chicharrones.
I thank my lucky stars that I won’t be slaving in the kitchen this year. If I was, I’d peruse these recipes:
- Russ Parson’s Dry-Brined Turkey (Do it TODAY!)
- Dr. Eades’s Sous Vide Turkey
- Cook’s Illustrated Roasted Brined Turkey
- Easy Paleo Gravy (Better yet, make some Slow Cooker Roast Chicken and save the extra gravy for Thursday)
- Bill & Hayley’s Paleo Stuffing
- Charles & Julie’s Paleo Stuffing
- Jan’s Sushi Bar’s Spicy Cranberry Wine Sauce
- Carrot Parsnip Puree
- Roasted Kabocha Squash
- Roasted Broccoli with Crispy Prosciutto
- Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Bacon
- Baked Yams/Sweet Potatoes
- World’s Best Braised Cabbage
- Melicious’s Velvety Butternut Squash
- Mark Sisson’s Pumpkin Pie
- Pumpkin, Coconut, & Maple Custard Cups
