I’m currently planning out our Thanksgiving feast and creating my shopping list. Both Scott and I have work commitments the week of the official holiday so we’ll be celebrating a little early this year.
Of course there’s the basics like turkey, gravy, and mashed potatoes that we always have, but I want to try a few new dishes as well. Things we haven’t had for a while that I’m going to recreate in a more healthy and primal way.
The above picture was taken several years ago (and yes Off Her Cork was an old site of mine) and features items we don’t have at the Thanksgiving table now.
No rolls, while delightful we have found we’d rather eat more food than bread. That means stuffing is out as well. Sweet potatoes are saved for dessert in the form of pie. There’s always fresh whipped cream to go with it!
This year I’m hoping to create a more primal inspired Thanksgiving dinner. Alcohol, while not primal at all, will be around. It’s the holidays and that makes for a great time to experiment with cocktails and recipes!
Our holidays are always laid back. The table and presentation might look fancy, but I assure you we are sitting down to dinner in our PJs. Comfort is most important here at the HQ!
I’ll be sharing more about our holiday later and what was on the table. So tell me, what is your favorite dish for Thanksgiving?
