All the recipes we followed this year were from PaleOMG’s Thanksgiving . Thanks, Juli, all of the recipe’s were wonderful!

We made a turkey with giblet gravy and FODMAPless Sausage Stuffing and we added oysters, the turkey’s liver, some white wine. By far my favorite part of the meal!

It didn’t last long – we finished it off for breakfast!

We made the Bacon and Chive Sweet Potato Biscuits, but used Japanese sweet potatoes (the purple Ipomoea batatas) instead because their so bready already. They turned out really mushy, somewhere between bread and mashed potatoes. We just peeled, boiled, and mashed them rather than follow the strange ritual the recipe described, but maybe we should have…

We made mashed sweet potatoes and I attempted to make marshmallow cream, but that didn’t turn out so well. (It turned into the thickest jello I’ve ever seen.

The greatest success of the meal, though, was the Pumpkin Cheesecake. I didn’t dare put 3 tbsps of lemon juice and I’m so glad I didn’t cause 1 was plenty. I used maple syrup instead of honey. Maranatha No-Stir Crunchy Almond Butter tastes like Reese’s peanut butter, making the crust even more amazing.

I’ve never eaten so much food at Thanksgiving and not felt tired and woozy. I was tingly stuffed, but none of the grain-carb-induced coma. So thankful for that!

Happy Thanksgiving!
