Traditional here. A little of everything, including the carby foods. We’re actually looking forward to it. Hopefully, we’ll do okay. I used to extend my bolus for Thanksgiving (and other similar types of rare events) but since I’m not using my pod to bolus, I’ll be shooting up every hour, trying to mimic (or come close to) an extended bolus.
Oh for those who might wonder what I mean by traditional … turkey (white meat person), my husband gets the dark meat, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, squash, pumpkin pie with cool whip, cranberry relish, green bean casserole, corn (which I won’t have, only because I like the stuffing and squash, potatoes, green beans more … corn is on the table to appease the appetites of some familiy members who put their nose up at squash or green beans casserole!) Then of course there is apple pie, cool whip fluff made jello and pudding.
I’ve got a fresh charge on my CGM and fresh batteries loaded in my (Edited to change CGM to PDM) … a new lancet, and a few new needles! I’m ready! Well, almost. Tomorrow I have to clean and dress our 20# Tom and set him off in the oven for a log nap. Then I’m off to clean potatoes, green beans, and squash. At some point I’ll start the gravy and get the crescent rolls in the oven too. Today I made two pumpkin pies, apple pie, orange/pineapple fluff, meatballs (little) for wedding soup on Friday! Yum! One thing for sure is, no one will walk away from the table, hungry. Wedding soup is on Friday, with cold turkey sandwiches, topped with cheese, pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, perhaps some miracle whip too
See … traditional. I must say though for the past four or so months I have been practicing with Swerve and using it in all my recipes that call for regular sugar. It measures the same and tastes the same to us and greatly lowers the carb count!
Happy Thanksgiving all!
