    Do mashed califlower instead of potatos. We actually like that a lot here.

    Livin, I talked to a friend of mine that is diabetic and he says that Thanksgiving used to be very hard for him, but now, his wife makes fresh green beans and a healthy salad and he will eat a good size helping of those and turkey and then eat much smaller portions of stuffing, mashed potatos, etc.
    Says he can still eat the good stuff, just not as much of it and balances it out by eating more of the healthy foods. And she makes a sugar free pumpkin pie.

    Being diabetic myself, I make a sugar free pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving, too. This way, you feel like you aren't totally deprived and get to have dessert, too. I've found the more spices (cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, cloves) you use in this pie, the better. It masks the Splenda in it real well.

    Gosh, we haven't cooked for Thanksgiving in several years. We go out to eat, because it saves us the hassle, and the last few years I had to open on Black Friday. Everyone gets what they want, and we can be relaxed-my mum doesn't have to slave in the kitchen all day, because we did holidays with my dad's parents (my dad does not get along with my mum's family) and she had to do all the cooking. Usually someone gets the "traditional turkey dinner", my brother gets prime rib, someone gets steak, and then I get a pasta dish. Also fried mozzarella and so forth.

    The one thing I used to love was stuffing, but I've kind of gotten over that. I never really liked turkey (and now I don't eat meat) so we would do rotisserie chicken for me (when I ate meat) and then in later years it became just loading up on side dishes and what not.

    Re: Let's Talk Turkey-Thanksgiving

    We had decided that this year because everyone is so loaded down with school and work, that we are going to buy our dinner from a resturant we like. They have a package with a small turkey, mashed potatos, dressing, green beans, rolls and pie. I may add a couple things, but not much. AND I figured out it's going to be cheaper than what I usually spend and save me tons of cooking time. And this way, we will still have the traditional dinner, still have leftovers and I don't have to spend days. Yes, days, cooking.

    Re: Let's Talk Turkey-Thanksgiving

    Not sure what we're doing this year, but I assume we'll be making dinner at home as usual. The only part of the meal that I have really missed when we've traveled is dessert. I could take or leave the rest. I'm working the day after Thanksgiving, which I don't mind too much as its a half day for us.

    I do always look forward to the Parade (for me, the Christmas season starts when Santa comes down Broadway in his sleigh), and the dog show they televise after, and the football games. Especially with my Giants playing this year.

    And the weekend afterward is great, when we start to decorate for Christmas, and Dad and I put up the outdoor lights as has become tradition.

    I love the parade too. But my favorite part is the Rockettes and I just found out they are coming here in Dec. I am going to check on ticket prices.
