You are still saying that

You are still saying that coconut meat is unhealthy! Come on, that viewpoint has been disproved a while ago and we need to start giving credit where it is due.

As someone who has dealt with

As someone who has dealt with an eating disorder my whole life, I can't say there's any food I look forward to eating. I am in recovery, but it's still one day at a time. Thanksgiving dinner only brings up awful memories for me, and I always felt so out of place living in a world where people live to eat.

That being said, the food that feels safest to me would have to be green beans, and I'd love to fix the recipe as presented in your magazine! Maybe it'll help me segue into the Thanksgiving dinner tradition without panic.

I love to add dried "grown

I love to add dried "grown in the USA" cherries, dark dark brown sugar, pecans, with a little half and half cream with my oatmeal.
All natural, but you need to watch the portion. Reason for buying cherries grown in he USA. California, and washington. is because I cooked up a bunch of oatmeal with a cheaper inported cherries, set this out overnight. In the morning when I raised the lid of the pan, I had an enormous amount of hatched small little flies. ALL OVER. That made me think what other imported dried fruits, nuts and food are also infested with flies that are dorment until you wake them up. Dont know how they got through the cooking faze. I tried this same thing using USA grown cherries and have never had a problem.
That taught me a big lesson when buying dried fruit...

Mostly, having all of my children together again is what I'm looking forward to. But food-wise...a special family apple pie recipe that I usually only makle 1-2x/year (Thanksgiving and maybe Christmas). I also make a light custard-style pumpkin pie and chocolate pecan pie. Nobody seems able to decide which is the favorite so they ask for thin slices of each. But the apple pie is my favorite, served warm with vanilla ice cream!
