At 9:30 The Night Before Thanksgiving

I thought I'd post my menu for tomorrow -- and I'm having 5-count-'em-5 last minute guests! (FUN!)

Roast turkey with giblet gravy, thickened with xanthan
Apple-Walnut Dressing (see my most recent podcast transcript at Dana's Low Carb For Life.com)
Green Beans Almandine
Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Fauxtatoes
Mashed Rutabaga (in the slow cooker as I keyboard this -- rutabaga takes a heap of cooking to get soft.)
Pumpkin Pie with a Pecan Praline Crust
Whipped Cream

I should be baking the pie right now, but I'm wiped. I'll do it in the morning. I have to have the turkey in at 9:30, but fortunately I am the proud owner of a tabletop convection oven. The pie can bake in that.
