What a meal for Grace looks like

Grace's Thanksgiving Meal pre-blend

As you know, Grace's food is provided through her g-tube via the Vitamix. We have been really recipe-bound on occasion. And at times we've treated Grace as the person who eats the leftovers.

This year, we wanted Grace to partake of a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Here is her blend for the day. It includes mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole with the marshmallows removed, spinach, apple crisp, cranberry relish, a french roll, turkey and a slice of pumpkin pie.

This is the blend mid-blend. You can see that the cranberries and the pumpkin/sweet potato combo looks like it might make the blend orange.

The spinach beat the cranberries

In the end, the spinach wins.

Katie says that it smells bad. But it tasted like cinnamon and sweet potatoes.

For those of you who think this looks gross, I assure you it's grosser in YOUR own tummy than it is in this blend.

I think I might make a pumpkin pie milkshake for me later!
