Need dinner ideas for Sunday before Thanksgiving!
Friends from out of town are coming for dinner Sunday night. Their restrictions are no pork or shellfish, low carb, high protein, lots of vegetables. Ordinarily, I would make roast chicken and some vegetable side dishes (I've decided to make Alice Medrich's apple crisp for dessert.), but it's so close to Thanksgiving--is poultry over the top? I'd like to avoid fish because I like to visit with my guests. And I don't eat much beef (I was also considering bourguignon.) so I was hoping to do something else (but it's not about me so…). Anyone have any fabulous ideas?

Thanks everyone! XO
It is simple, easy, delicious, low carb (except for 2 TBLs. of flour), and it cooks itself. You don't really need to cook a carb with it, although quinoa would be divine to soak up the sauce, and it goes really well with additionally roasted vegetables and a salad.

I've also really been into beef stew lately. I use butternut squash instead of potatoes, I have been using Marcellas tomato sauce instead of canned tomatoes (because I made gallons of it over the summer and froze it). I stir a concoction of dijon mustard, Worcestershire and hoisin in and everyone comments on the depth of flavor, but they can't put their finger on it. I serve it over mashed cauliflower.
