thanksgiving ~ american

what's everyone planning for the holiday? or what do you cook for your country's thanksgiving/independence day?

we don't do the typical holiday food here. even when the entire family is together. (the closest is 8 hrs away). this year, it's my kids and myself. possibly roommate and my best friend&his hubs.
i refuse to cook a turkey. sorry but just can't. it's disgusting. the oldest wanted pork loin. not my thing. I'm a side eater on holidays. making "cheesy" popovers, steamed broccoli, green bean casserole, garlic mashed potatoes and  apple berry crumble. sounds good to me.

roasted peppers

i got lucky at the grocery store. a mixed 2lb bag of fingerling, Peru purple and redskin "petite" potatoes for $2. roasted them simply with olive oil, pepper, dried minced garlic and (A TON) of parsley. just slice the larger potatoes in half and coat with a mix of above. place on a baking sheet pan. cook at 425 for 30-40 minutes.

riceworks sweet chili chips

these are brown rice chips and taste just as good as they sound, sweet chili. a different texture than a potato chip or tortilla chip. thicker. very crunchy. starts sweet but ends with a bite. my kids love these. I've had to hide bags before. sad eh?
i know they sell these at target and publix.
~wheat and gluten free
~vegan and celiac friendly

other flavors available.
