Is anyone else cooking for Thanksgiving? Do you have a menu planned yet? I love to hear what others are making, get ideas, and swap recipes! I don't have a final menu yet as I have a lot of dietary restrictions to deal with this year.... my FIL is doing Atkins & is allergic to yeast, my DS is allergic to dairy, BIL is allergic to nuts (but not peanuts), and MIL is allergic to chocolate & eats sort of Atkins-ish due to FIL. :shock: Whew!
Planning stages of my menu:
Mashed potatoes or sweet potato souffle (DH loves mashed pot. but is the only one who will be eating them due to diet restrictions)
Broccoli with cheese sauce (steamed for DS)
Relish tray (carrots, celery, pickles, olives, etc)
Cherry & pumpkin pies... unless I can find another interesting dessert before then
I usually make a sage & grape wild rice dish, but I don't know if FIL & MIL will eat it due to the Atkins thing. I also usually make an apple-pecan stuffing but can't do that this year. I feel like I need a few more Atkin's friendly side dishes... Will probably also have some wheat rolls for those who can eat them, although I won't be making them from scratch due to the yeast & possible cross contamination.
Or maybe we'll just go out for Chinese!
