Our 'Turkey Torture' wasn't low fat either:
Deep fried (cajun spiced) Turkey
Candied Sweet Potatos (my recipe, by my sister's special request instead of the usual praline topped dish. )
Asparagus with a mock hollandaise
Green Bean Casserole (yes, THAT one, left out most of the fried onions called for, still was too much. )
Cranberry compote (cranberries, an orange, sugar, pecans)
I did about five of the casseroles, the cheesecake and the cranberry compote and reduced fat amounts when/where possible, and used fat free sour cream in the squash casserole and the cheesecake.
A fruit is a vegetable with looks and money.
Plus, if you let fruit rot, it turns into wine,
something Brussels sprouts never do.
