Hi, Gigi here. Thursday is Thanksgiving, and I’m really looking forward to it. Sienna and Oliver have invited me and Bill Mertz for dinner. Sienna is doing the turkey, and I’m doing some of the sides. Even though I deliver gourmet diet meals to my clients, I don’t believe in dieting on special days like Thanksgiving and Christmas. I’m not saying to go ahead and stuff yourself, but enjoy your food, take a nice long walk after the meal and then the next day you can go back to sensible eating.We’ll be having the turkey with gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce and green bean casserole. I found an interesting recipe that offers a twist on the usual cranberry sauce—you start with a basic recipe then add one diced chipotle pepper in adobo sauce and some chopped cilantro. Of course we’ll have the regular kind, too. And pie! There has to be pumpkin pie, and I’ve also made a pumpkin roll.
I think my favorite part though is having the leftovers on Friday! Sienna got a huge fresh turkey and has promised that we’ll all go home with more than enough for another meal!
What is the one thing that your family has to have to make your Thanksgiving complete? Other than the turkey of course!
Happy Thanksgiving to All!
