Thanksgiving’s Here Again!

That means for all intensive purposes, 2012 is a wrap. Already!

My 2011 post featured 11th hour preparation, Last Minute Thanksgiving Dinner Prep and is worth the review.

I’m currently deciding between quinoa dishes.

Quinoa with Pine Nuts & Raisins

Lemony Quinoa with Butternut Squash

Quinoa Pilaf with Cranberries & Pecans

Quinoa is a gluten-free, high density protein that works as a very complimentary side to accompany turkey or duck. It will also serve as a hearty main for those who eschew animal protein and meat.

Whatever you’re doing this year (and I offer a belated gobble gobble to my Canadian readers who celebrated last month), may you have a relaxing time with friends and loved ones.
