What did you eat for Thanksgiving dinner?
I ate 8 cheese sticks from Costco. Yup that's it.

I indulged in a forum favorite: CheezIts.

No nineteen course gluttony exhibition here, but we kept it traditional:
Turkey (free range, recipe from, carved by me using Alton Brown's instructions, for which I am forever grateful)
Mashed potatoes (requested/demanded by the company, I'd have gone with rice, it's easier)
Whipped cauliflower (mashed potato equivalent for Mrs. A)
Green Beans w/toasted almonds
Other Vegetables: carrots, onion, celery were cooked inside the turkey

Then there was dessert (all SCD-compliant):
Apple Crisp
Pumpkin Pie
Pumpkin cupcakes
(we have a ton of pumpkin in the house right now... Mrs. A went a little overboard with the 'pumpkins as decoration' theme, and we have to do SOMETHING with them...)

We also had pumpkin pancakes for breakfast.

^^It's no CheezIts, but it'll do.

It was just me this year (suprisingly) so a whole roasted lemon-garlic hen (from Kroger of course), baked potatoe and a pecan pie with ice cream.

I have always had a firm take-your-own-damn-crusts-off-if-you-don't-want-them policy w/ the kids' lunches, but the last couple weeks I've just been saving them all to make stuffing. So last weekend I bought a stewing chicken, made stock, yesterday toasted the crusts and added some other stuff and then that chicken stock and baked it up into stuffing. In the past I've gone bonkers w/ sausage, oyster, or both in the stuffing. This was very satisfying, and made the kids happier w/ their sandwiches at school in the meantime.

Turkey, cranberry-blueberry sauce, sweet potatoes and marshmallows, and some pumpkin pie for dessert. Then I had a turkey sandwich for lunch today with the cranberry sauce and some sweet potatoes and pan fried it with our Thanksgiving tradition sweet-butter (which came from one year when my brother let the whipping cream go a little too long in the mixer.)

Usual TG day fare. Since both my parents and both my in laws died over the last year and a half, my wife and I went to a restaurant for a very deluxe buffet. Very nice except we could not take care packages home.

Morningstar chik patties, mashed potatoes, yams, stuffing, carbonated apple cider, cranberries, blueberry pie with full fat real whip cream, and an IPA.
We ran a 5k in the morning and had no desire to cook too much food.

Turkey and mashed potatoes. GF cooked, it was delicious.

Yams and pizza! :) Oh, and chocolate milk.
