My Non Traditional Thanksgiving!
Updated: Aug 27, 2019
Anyone who really knows me, knows that I really enjoy healthy food. So the thought of the Holidays stresses me out. The heavy food twice a year, back to back, a month apart. Mixed with heavy desserts, umm No Thank You!! Now I know what you're saying, “it’s twice a year” yeah but.. "it’s a month apart". So no thank you again!!
So this year I decided to have the heavy foolishness at Christmas.
And for our Thanksgiving, to keep it light with homemade
Chicken and Dumplings
Fresh Green Beans
7-up Pound Cake with Fresh Berries & Cream
Now I know your thinking “Berries are a summer fruit” But it was 92 degrees in Los Angeles today, so it was a “Summer” day!!
Doesn’t this look yummy, comfort food with summer sunshine!!
Here is the recipes I used “HERE“
I just baked my chicken and rolled out my dumplings
For the Green beans;
Fresh Green beans with the ends cut off
Coconut oil (some oil)
Sweat down the onions in the oil, then add the garlic then the green beans. Then cook to your desired tenderness. I like mine a little crunchy.
Now the “POUND CAKE’!!!
So I let this sit in the pan all night and had to figure out a way to get it out. So remove your within 30 min so it doesn’t get stuck. Also I tried coconut spray oil that I don’t think really worked because I couldn’t get my muffins out of the pan. But whatever they were still really good!!
