I am very much looking forward to cooking turkey this year!
I won't be doing it until after the actual day, though; this year, we'll be spending Thanksgiving in Disneyland. I may call ahead and ask them to make us some turkey that Clark and I can eat, but I'm not sure yet.
In case you are not aware, Disneyland and Disney World can handle pretty much any food allergy/intolerance situation, as long as you give them a little bit of notice. Heck, they can deal with it at their sit-down restaurants with no notice. So Disney gets high marks in my book!
Also, this year I am going to indulge in some Meyenberg goat butter! I asked my local Henry's Market to order some for me, and they said yes!
I have heard from other SCDers that Meyenberg goat butter is legal. It does have "natural flavoring" listed on the package, but another SCDer cleared this with a rep. I do not remember all of the details, so please use with caution if there's any doubt in your mind.
I am going to be paying $5.99 for 8 oz of goat butter. I thought that was kind of high, but then again, the holidays are coming. It will be nice to have something special, I thought.
But then, I happened to drop by Whole Foods to get a bag of almond flour (my son wants pizza for his birthday). They had a different brand of goat butter in their dairy case -- $9.99 for 8 oz! So I guess I'm getting a deal!
I also have a link to share with you. If you're wondering why your turkey is dry and tasteless, blame the bird. Mark's Daily Apple has a nice blog post on heritage turkeys but the PARSNIPS ARE ILLEGAL, OK? So just ignore that part. :)
I certainly won't miss the potatoes, and I never cared for parsnips anyway. My son and I have been snacking on butternut squash and pumpkin all week. Mmmm...
I'm also planning to make some pumpkin cheesecake bars with dripped yogurt. Stay tuned. If it works, I will post the recipe.
Oh! And if you are looking for a great SCD dairy free pumpkin pie recipe, head on over to Beth's Blog. I purchased her Turtle Soup cookbook. I really enjoyed the simple recipes, and the pie is just GREAT!
Have a great holiday, guys and gals!
