It was a long day cooking but now it's over and it was a success, for me and the family. I made:
- mashed potato
- roasted yams
- cranberry sauce
- steamed broccoli & cauliflower
- acorn & butternut squash soup
- pumpkin pie brownie bites with light whipped cream
I modified the soup. I added greek yogurt instead of cream cheese.
We started with the soup and I had about 1 tablespoon but I used a teaspoon to eat it so I was able to have a few small spoonfuls. For the main dinner, I had a couple of small pieces of turkey, I smeared a titch of cranberry sauce on the turkey, and about a teaspoon of gravy. I had a stewed carrot (I make a stock with the turkey neck and I eat the carrots) piece, a piece of broccoli, and some yams. For dessert, I had about a tablespoon of the light whipped cream only (4 tbsp = 30 cal).
I don't feel deprived at all. It's amazing.
