Speaking of Thanksgiving menu, what are all of you going to do for dressing? It's one of our favorite parts of the Thanksgiving meal, and I know we're really going to miss it. I don't usually stuff the bird with it (I usually put onions, garlic, lemon, celery, and herbs in there). I usually put it in a pan and bake it. I know that some people make a (probably very yummy) mushroom stuffing, but ds can't eat mushrooms. Any other ideas??
And what about gravy?? How does one make a good SCD gravy.
I really want this to be a good meal. Ds looks forward to it all year. Besides, I'd like to invite another family over, but I want to be able to serve food that will seem at least a bit traditional. And those are my two stumbling blocks.
Any other ideas (about any of the traditional dishes served) are also welcome. We should be sharing, since multiple heads are better than one.
And in the spirit of sharing, here's the cranberry relish I'll be making. I've made it for years, so that's one thing that won't change. I know that cranberry relish isn't difficult to make SCD legal, but I thought I'd share anyway.Cranberry Relish
1 bag cranberries
1/2 bag frozen raspberries
1 tangerine (or orange), including peel (I usually try to remove any seeds)
honey to taste
2 handfuls of chopped nuts (or to taste)
Put cranberries, raspberries, and tangerine or orange into the food processor and pulse, until chopped to the right consistency. This could also be done with food grinder, if you have one. Add honey and nuts to taste. Don't be tempted to use tangerines, since they're smaller than oranges, becuase they're a stronger flavor, so you only need one. Or you could just stick to the traditional orange (I can eat tangerines, but not oranges, so that's why I use the tangerine).
