What's is your biggest Thanksgiving challenge (the food, travel etc)? How are you going to handle it?

Mine are food (mainly stuffing and desserts). Travelling to friends and being away from my basics (homemade almond milk etc).

Any one have a good stuffing recipe?

It is going to limp to the finish line. Try spatchcocking the bird, basically cutting out the back bone and lying the bird flat on a rack in a pan. Makes it much easier to get a properly cooked bird. Also since you are missing parts, you might just cut the Turkey up into parts first and go that method. Google for instructions on either method.

I'm looking forward to eating a butt-load of food and it's at my house, with family who's great at respecting my dietary choices anyway, so we'll probably have a blast. Paleolithic style.

Also, I need some fricking cranberry sauce. And I never liked stuffing,t hough we may figure out a gluten free version in case anyone else wants any! :)

My big challenge this year will be to find the appetite to eat all that food. I'm just not able to pack it away like I used to (good thing). So actually more turkey will be as leftovers, and we make a big pot of Turkey soup which everyone loves for the next few days. I'm glad I don't have to make or eat any stuffing - waste of calories and space, although I have fond memories of the flavors.

Thanksgiving is great. My turkey is still alive on a pasture, going under in the afternoon of Nov. 26. It will never freeze. I love squash dishes, and my wife makes a great stuffing with our onions, our celery, our smoked sausage, dried cherries, and corn bread that she makes. The radicchio salads and sorrel potato soup (all from the garden) also are wonderful. Easy to be paleo on that day.

i don't find thanksgiving challenging. i get excited to see all my family!! we are having it at my house this year- first time ever. i'm making butternut squash, pumpkin pie, and crab stuffed mushrooms. mother is making a turkey that we ordered from a farm. should be a very nice meal.

i just need to avoid getting stuffed because i hate feeling like i'm gonna explode.
