Lunch turned out great and I only had one helping of everything.Some were small helpings. The oyster dressing was yucky but I always wanted to make it.Now I know.I love oysters but not in dressing.I only had one bite of it.The other dressing was good but it wasn't cornbread dressing but I ate it. Decided to make gravy from pan drippings. The turkey was moist and falling a part. made all sides much smaller than I use to. Candy yams were just one small can and I only took a small taste. Made it mostly for hubby. Also only took a heaping tablespoon of mashed potatos. Those were also for hubby. I have no idea of calorie count, But know it is half what I would have usually had. The gravy was worse as it was only salty side which I don't know why. I used just a little on turkey with spices.But I did use some garlic powder so all in all I guess thats where salt came from. I used extra milk to cut the salt. But everything was good and I didn't stuff myself senseless. I also had fresh sliced tomatoes which helped to fill me up and not eat so much of other stuff. We will eat it again tonight and then I will wrap the meat and freeze it.I may leave some as hubby loves turkey sandwiches. Any leftover gravy will be thrown away. There isn't a lot of sides left so I should be ok.
