A Paleo Thanksgiving
So far the menu consists of Roasted Turkey, Paleo/Primal Mulled Cranberry sauce, Paleo/Primal Pumpkin Pie and Paleo/Primal Pecan Pie. I haven't yet decided whether to attempt a Paleo dressing or to just omit it in favor of other veggie side dishes that the guests will likely bring. I could make an almond bread then use the regular recipe full of celery, onions, mushrooms, eggs and chicken broth...but I'm not sure if I'll bother. And we'll probably have Roasted Pumpkin seeds to snack on while we sit around the table after dinner.
Although we are altering virtually every dish, I think we'll still feel like we've had a traditional Thanksgiving Feast. Bring on the Friends, Food and Fun!
Update: I did decide to make a Paleo/Primal Thanksgiving Dressing. It turned out amazing, and I'm anxious to see what the rest of our guests think! This one will definitely be a staple in our house going forward.
