This recipe is for people who cannot have grains, avoiding rice or just want to increase their vegetable consumption! Cauliflower rice can be made very simply or can be purchased in the freezer or produce aisle. Thanks to my Ninja blender I can make it myself in just minutes.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday! I love being with my family and going to the Macy’s Day parade and not worrying about all the gifts that the next holiday brings. The weather is crisp but we can still go for a walk after the big meal. Of course, there is the delicious foods and the memories about the foods or recipes that come with all holidays. One of our family traditions is that we eat grapefruit before the meal (thanks Grandma for starting this). We peel  ~12-14 grapefruits this is a task in and of itself, my husband calls it torture. We sit for about an hour with newspaper out on the kitchen table and peel the skin and then all the white pith and membrane off each individual piece. It’s a lot of work but so delicious! I love sitting around the table, talking, and always accidentally squirting someone in the eye with grapefruit juice as we are peeling. Sounds terrible when I am writing it but something I was not willing to give up when my Grandma was no longer at our table....
