Thanksgiving Menu

Okay here we are once again getting ready for Thanksgiving and I am looking forward to every minute of it. I know most think it is crazy to even think about cooking so much but I really love the look on everyone's face when they see all the food. In my family we have big eaters, and girls who love to help in the kitchen so we have a blast! It becomes more of a family binding time for us and a learning processes for the little ones. This year will look a little different than last year's Thanksgiving I like add new things and change things up a little. We will still keep my husband's top choices of course. a few.

Thanksgiving Menu 2012


Swirly crustless quiche - taken from the Practical Paleo cookbook, just a fabulous book if you enjoy eating well.

Fresh Strawberries and Oranges with coffee or tea

Now not everything can be to healthy on Thanksgiving so the rest of the menu has a little of everything.


Mixed olives, Brie cheese with cranberries, and crackers ( some gluten Free some not)

Red Pepper, Carrots, and Cucumber tray, with our favorite dip

Main dishes

Turkey with Gravy

Spiced lamb meatballs with balsamic-fig compote - taken from the Practical Paleo cookbook.
