So what's on your table this year?
I am going to my lovely sister in law's house, so most of my meal will be out of my control. How to handle that? Luckily my clean eating is not a secret to them, and in the recent past my sister in law has started cleaning up what and how they eat. But they still have a long way to go...and...she works full-time. So what will that mean for me? A yummy meal with family. And a no thank you to most of the leftovers.
My contribution to the feast are the appetizers and the desserts. Nice healthy, clean appetizers and desserts.
Did I mention that my sister in law's husband is Jewish? In case you haven't heard, the first night of Hanukkah is also Thanksgiving. So we are blending the two traditions for a unique meal this year.
Being raised Christian, I don't know too much about Hanukkah traditions, so I hit the internet to see what traditional foods are served for the holiday, so I could plan something fun. I found out it's all about oil and cheese. Deep fried foods, especially. Well...my gallbladder does not agree with fried foods in general. Soooooooo...a challenge was to be had here!!
I've got some ideas, working on ways to clean them up. Come back tomorrow to see what I came up with!!
