Anyone else NOT do a traditional Thanksgiving meal/holiday? 🦃
Today I’m making Spicy Crab and Spicy Shrimp – and a beautiful spread of delicious keto friendly low carb foods to share with my daughter. 🍤
There will be sauteed broccoli slaw for my plate, cheesy cauliflower rice for my daughter’s plate, both topped with my famous Spicy Shrimp Sauce chock full of crab & shrimp. 🥰
Plus roasted asparagus, and garlic parmesan zucchini crisps. 😋
I’ll share my “recipe” for those on my blog this weekend. 🥒 I use the steamable zucchini spirals and roast them crispy in the oven. They’re SO good!! 😍❣️
📌 Here’s my Spicy Shrimp Stir Fry recipe:
– definitely save this one!! 🍤
For the spicy cream sauce (great on salmon, perfect as a dip, a delicious way to serve up shrimp!)… I simply use the butter I saute the shrimp in, plus cream cheese & spicy mayo.
My favorite spicy mayo is Primal Kitchens chipotle lime mayo but my daughter loves the Evolve cajun mayo – so that’s what I’m using today. 🙂 You could also use white Queso Dip, if you happen to have that on hand.
It’s just my daughter and I home today, and we’re going to enjoy a great meal and lots of movies in fluffy blankets on this rainy Thanksgiving. 💕
We’ve always done less traditional holidays over the years, and just made it our own – celebrating in our own way. My daughter and I stayed up last night talking about all the things we’re thankful for in our lives right now. 🥰 So many good things.
I hope you’re having a wonderful day, with many beautiful things to be grateful for – and to enjoy! I’d love to hear what you’re doing, what you’re eating – and what you’re most grateful for in life right now. 💝
It doesn’t have to be big, and it doesn’t have to look like anyone else’s, to be a happy celebration. A few years ago I was home alone, so my great dane and I went out for a Thanksgiving hike. We had a fun picnic at Lost Creek Falls, where he feasted on a big bone 🙂 then we did a night hike at Rock Island up the river trail. That was such a fun day!
I’m grateful for my health. I’m grateful both of my kids are doing well. I’m grateful my father is at rest. I’m grateful for a warm house and a delicious meal – and good company with my daughter today. I’m grateful Slim passed peacefully, and that I found Luna Rose and could give her a home, and the love she deserves. 🐾🐾 I’m grateful for you, and for our community here…
Thank you for being such a big part of my life, and for letting me be a part of yours. 💖 xo
Happy Thanksgiving, or Thankful Thursday!
It’s okay if your holidays aren’t very traditional. Mine usually aren’t. 😉 It’s okay if you choose to do a very traditional NON-KETO holiday too! Whatever you do… Make it a great day❣
