Happy Thanksgiving/Hanukkah

Thanksgiving Turkey Leg

Hope you are all enjoying your Thanksgiving Holiday however you’re spending it. Or perhaps you are starting by celebrating Hanukkah. For the first time in 113 years these two holidays are joining forces. So either way I know you are giving thanks. If you ask me this makes for one power packed day. So share the miracles you’ve had in your life, the blessings with one another. I say celebrate, come together and be grateful and give thanks.

Me I plan to be up to my eyeballs with friends and potluck Thanksgiving dinner. Now mind you other than the Turkey I have to make special dishes to fill in the gaps on my plate. You know by now I have ridiculous dietary restrictions. First on the list of okay to eat is the Turkey. So munch munch munch. But beyond that it’s time to get cracking. I must keep myself distracted from the other forbidden temptations like Bacon and Bourbon Pecan Pie. Yes you heard right. Pecan pie with strips of bacon laced on top.

I never did manage to completely  a Hanukkah drawing so I am lighting a visual candle instead.

Here are some of the recipes I tried making to fill up the rest of my palate.

Mashed Garlic (Parmesan) Cauliflower ~I am adding Parmesan to mine
OR Roasted Garlic Autumn Mash

Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Bacon 
OR Kale and Pomegranate Salad 

Pumpkin, Coconut Maple Custard Cups or Apple Crumble perhaps a pumpkin smoothie

Lastly but not leastly Gravy
