LOL... Yes, we do have Amish North of our community. And yes there are hitching posts at Ben's grocer just north of us. My brother got the turkey from his employer, which is very south of us.

Amish chicken is chicken raised by the Amish community - the ultimate in organic. There is a large Amish population in northern Michigan where Jean lives. My daughter lives there, too; she buys produce and chicken from them - she's finally found a farm willing to sell her raw milk.

At her local Walmart, there are hitching posts in the parking lot!

As usual I am late late late! I am still catching up on spark!

Thanks Caroline for posting this!

Onto dinner - I had a veggie tray with carrots, celery and few pickles. We had an amish turkey with homemade stuffing, gravy, canned yams, homemade mashed yams, mashed potatoes, corn, green bean casserole, homemade bread, rolls, fruit salad, and a side iceberg salad (no dressing for me).

I hate very well staying within my limits, Turkey, both mashed sweet and reg potatoes, corn, 1 roll and side salad.

For dessert I made cream cheese cookies, choc. chip cookies and sugar cookies. Mom brought two pies, one chocolate and one banana cream. I had one cream cheese cookie and one piece of choc pie.

Dinner was great, but the company of mom, dad, my 2 brothers and my hubby was better! I was so thankful to have them to my house and celebrate together.

Jean

OH and HEY I want to go too!

I believe next year im going to rent a plane and go to each of your homes for a sample of Thanksgiving Dinner. Every thing sounds so good. I usually make Peanut Butter Pie but this year i just made the Pumpkin. There is a lot i didnt cook because it was only my self and Scott. But is was so good.
I want to say i got tickled at Scott, as we were getting ready to say Grace, he looked at Lexy (dog) and said well Doggie we are thankful for every thing, i said to him did you know Dog spelled backwards is GOD. I am so glad God has a good sense of humor or a lot us would be in trouble. emoticon I always say God loves our animals. I did a blog on The little Brown dog and Jesus and i just love it. emoticon

Hello everyone! I slept most of the time but because my dad lives alone, we had already made plans to spend a few days with him and me do the cooking. My oldest son and his wife stopped by too. I managed to roast an organic turkey with a a stuffing made of corn bread, pecans, dates, spicy sausage (from Trader Joes), the usual onion, celery, etc. Potatoes mashed with broth, cornbread made with peanut oil (gave it a nutty taste); an asparagus; green bean and corn bake; sweet potatoes sweetened with dates, pecans and brown sugar; home made real macaroni and cheese (dad loves this and since he got clearance from his doctor, he really wanted this). For dessert, I had previous made a couple days before: home made pumpkin pie made from the pumpkins in my garden; a coconut cream pie (my husband's favorite) an apple pie (dad's favorite) and a batch of chocolate chip cookies.

I had part of a New York Strip steak, mashed potatoes, turkey gravy, dressing, cranberry
sauce.

I did not over eat, and I was quite happy with myself.


I would have rather had Turkey, would rather have gone out to eat, however David did
not want to so I cooked.

We "potluck" among our family each year. This year I brought the Bread (bought croissant(lower on carb than regular bread or rolls), Dessert, and Drinks. Family Friend brought - Turkey, and SiL and BIL brought Sides - Potato casserole with bacon, and onions, and mashed potatoes with onion gravy (so it had less fat)... and a Green Bean Casserole with a lot less 'soup" than the recipe calls for... to lighten it out :)

Then we had Tres Leches Cake... It had the 3 milks, Whip Cream as frosting, and we added Strawberries (with no sugar added)... to the top...

I had my usual can of Mt Dew but I limit that as always.. and went to water after the Dew was empty.

I feel OK with my choices, and my quantity. We chose 8.5 inch foam plates this year instead of 10.5 and I left white spots showing on my plate.

:) And the Cake was an extra we don't get very often so I chose to treat myself....

I will say i did very good in my eating on Thanksgiving.
Menu
Turkey Breast, the broth, no gravy, Ham, i only ate Turkey, Mashed Pot. Sweet Pot. My cranberry relish i make, Celery, with cream cheese and Pecans, Green Beans Almodine. And Pumpkin Pie. This year i did not cook all the things i usually do and it was still great, and i did eat healthy. I make the Cranberry Relish when ever i can. It is so good and good for you. Raw Cranberries, Navel Oranges, Walnuts, put in Food Processor,and grind up and then add Stevia, or sugar or both if you want, to your taste. We always have salad.
Of course every thing is Organic, and so good. emoticon
