I’m with you, David. I plan to make my absolutely sinful sweet potatoes (complete with marshmallows but probably compromising with sugar-free syrup). And then there’s my mom’s infamous stuffing I can’t live with out. It’s not a high-carb day - it’s a HELLA-carb day. But frequent testing and lots of bolus stacking are certainly in store for me. I will have my new Navigator CGMS running - poor thing, probably going to bust a spring in it.
There are also a lot of foods on the table that I skip in order to work in what I want. I am so into my favorite carb-y side dishes at Thanksgiving that I will often save a slice or two of pie for myself and eat it a week later rather than throw dessert on top of a high-density meal.
I like the idea of an extended temp basal, especially during the morning and the day before when I am doing so much food preparation. We have to remember, cooks among us, that all of that food prep can cause contact highs from absorption through the skin. I am a dig-my-hands in kind of cook and will pay for it.
