For anyone looking for the Pumpkin Gingerbread recipe, since it's not linked up properly in the article above, I googled and found it here: http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-de tail.asp?recipe=20100
I have no intention of doing any of these things but it's a nice list for those who want to. For myself, I do believe that this is a special holiday and I want to be grateful for having food but the real thing i.e., dark meat turkey, gravy, stuffing,since we are eating out. Later when I cook for the rest of the weekend at my leisure, then I will make some substitutions. I want what I really enjoy - just watch the portions and cut back from what I used to eat(which was thirds) of most things.
THANKS so much for the plethora of possibilities. I'll have to do the best I can with Thanksgiving, but I'm hosting Christmas, and I'm determined to do it as tasty and healthy as possible with LOTS of help from SP!

I love home made goodies. Hard to say no. This Thanksgiving I am buying desserts for my family that they will love and I will be out of the kitchen and away from the the hot chocolate chip cookies and all those pies.
