I thought it might be fun to share my Thanksgiving menu, since so many clients and friends ask what I make. And I thought it would be even more fun to let you vote on which recipe(s) you'd like me to share in future newsletters. Vote in the Comments section below. You may vote for more than one recipe, but please, one vote per recipe per person.
First, what you won't see in my menu: no dairy products or ingredients (dietary restrictions), no stuffing (none of my guests like it and I don't want to be tempted with an entire batch for myself). Also, missing are dinner rolls and gravy (we just don't eat rolls and don't like gravy smothering the turkey). We are all health-conscious and weight-conscious, but we love food. You might even say that for some of us, eating is our hobby.
