Instead of eating all day I read recipe books

I'm planning a big Thanksgiving dinner. I'll be in P3 and I am having many of my neighbors over. I am planning on offering buffet style healthy options. Not everything is completely carb-free. Here is the menu. If you want me any of the recipes, let me know. (So far none of my guests want turkey or stuffing, so I won't be making it, but if you want my recipe for an easy no-fail turkey or my fruit & nut stuffing, I am willing to share.)
Three sisters soup (black bean, butternut squash & corn)
Spinach Strawberry Banana Salad
Caramelized tofu w/ shredded brussels sprouts
Twice Stuffed Baked Sweet Potatoes
Garlic haricots verts amandine
Party Popping Trail Mix
Caramel Pumpkin Pudding Cupcakes
i am also having a spritzer bar. I'll have plenty of seltzer (club soda) on hand. The kids are going to skewer berries, grapes and citrus wedges onto toothpicks.
For centerpieces, I am going to get some trays of wheat grass and insert wedges of apple, melon, etc sticking up out of the grass.
Am I forgetting anything?
