A Paleo Thanksgiving (revisited)

This was our 2010 Menu (2011 is being planned this weekend, as I have been ridiculously busy with our new "child"...CrossFit Oregon City):

The Starters

The Main Course

The Sides
Mixed Greens w/Orange, Dried Figs, and Walnuts**

The Desserts

*I add whole sprigs of rosemary to the oil, to infuse, and then 1T. of additional whole rosemary leaves to the nuts before cooking. I also substitute pure maple syrup for the sugar and actually like the flavor and texture a lot better than the white sugar.

**Cut out orange sections from 1-2 Oranges (do this over a bowl, so that the juices are reserved for the vinaigrette) and set aside. Squeeze all of the juice from the skins and membrane of the orange into the vinaigrette bowl. Add the juice of 1 Lemon to the bowl. Add equal parts Walnut Oil to citrus juice. Add Sea Salt and Black Pepper, to taste. Whisk to combine.

Toss Vinaigrette with Mixed GreensOrange SegmentsWalnuts, and Dried FigsPomegranate Seeds add a nice splash of red to this salad. And, Fresh Mint would add a nice freshness.

What's on your Thanksgiving menu?

Hey Jen,

Could you fix the link for the Bacon-Wrapped Turkey Breast w/ Sausage Stuffing? It goes to the smokey Sweet potatoes recipe. Thanks! Going to get the ingredients for the Moroccan meatbeals!
