I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful day full of family, food and fun...Mamacado-style! As I said in my last blog post, I decided to keep the Thanksgiving meal simple and no-fuss. Everyone brought side dishes, and we stuck with the basics which still made for a wonderful and filling meal!
Below is a photo of the great meal....we had everything I listed on the menu in my last post.
Here is my son's plate - filled with everything that was allergy-friendly for him. He didn't care for the cranberry sauce or stuffing - of course the two things that he usually doesn't eat. But he enjoyed everything else (and has been eating those leftovers for the past few days too!).
I also tried a new recipe listed on my last blog post: Sweet potato truffles. I changed it just a bit to make it allergy-friendly by substituting gluten-free oats for the pecans. I'm guessing the pecans add a nice flavor and texture to this dessert that I think it was missing. These tasted like sweet potato pie, which was definitely a good thing. But they were a little too soft for my liking - they needed some sort of crust or nut filling. I froze the leftovers and may try them on top of vanilla ice cream as they'd probably be very tasty that way!
Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!
