Thanksgiving Recipes & Such

It's getting kind of late, but there's still time for the store.

Incidentally, it's very easy to make a very low carb pumpkin pie. It's like 3.5 g per slice.

That recipe calls for molasses, which I've never used, and tells you what spices to use. It's easier to just use "Pumpkin Pie Spice" from McCormick, if you have it. The recipe doesn't mention vanilla, which I thought was generally in the recipe (I use it).

I also never bothered with this "2/3 cup of soy milk & 1/3 cup of cream" business. Just do a full cup of cream or half cup cream and half cup Half & Half.

Oh, and I don't get the "food processor" thing. You mix the stuff. It's dead simple. You take a spoon and you mix the stuff for like five minutes. Not that hard.

This pie doesn't have any crust but if you must have a crust you can make one from almond powder, held together by butter, smeared on the tin.

The pie serves 8, or as I call it, "one."

Oh: You can order, online, a splenda syrup from DaVinci in Egg Nog flavor. I've also seen it in some specialty stores. It's fantastic. Throw it in a glass half milk half Half & Half, pour in some egg nog syrup, and you're drinking some lower-carb egg nog.

One thing: Milk has carbs and if you do what I do, which I finish every night with a big glass of Egg Nog or three for a month, you're probably going to notice Atkins has stopped working.

So, don't be me. But you already knew better than that.

There's another flavor that has nothing to do with the holidays in particular but it's good: "Salted Caramel." You may think, "Eh, doesn't grab me." It'll grab ya when you're drinking it.

Stay away from Chocolate. No one can fake Chocolate. The chemistry just isn't there. Fake chocolate is just "Brown Crayon with Sugar and Chemicals."
