But if you can’t wait (there’s only one day ’til Thanksgiving!), Mark’s Daily Apple posted a roast duck recipe yesterday.

Tom Denham of Whole Life Eating, a Whole30 devotee, has a recipe for Sweet Potato Fries, as does another favorite site of mine, Simply Recipes. If you can wait ’til this evening, I’ll post my Sweet Potato Plan of Action®, which involves smushing together a bunch of recipes and winging it a little bit to make what I predict will be crispy, flavorful, spicy sweet potato fries. Exciting, right?!
