For me Thanksgiving dinner always had the best food.
And, as a B, I've considered myself lucky to see B-feasts published in such great number every November.
It was as if the names "Thanksgiving Dinner" and "Ideal B Feast" were interchangeable.
Did any other Bs feel that way?

I remember reading ER4YT for the first time - at the end of 1996.
I remember immediately looking up the B chapter, there in the new Whole Foods Store's book department, and noticing immediately that type B's beneficials were skewed toward a typical Thanksgiving spread.
This month's issue of Sunset typifies those offerings, as an example. Its Thanksgiving dinner this year features the following "sides": Cabbage, squash soup, broccoli, sweet potatoes, mixed roasted onions... And other recipes are sent in for brussels sprouts and cauliflower...

Not to mention the standard cranberry dishes.
And during my childhood you were likely to find bits of pineapple and those of walnut here and there...

If you're a B, what menus/ ideas does this drum up for you?
I invite you to draft your menu for the Perfect B Feast, around the roasted turkey centerpiece.

I usually make a turkey stuffed with brown rice stuffing. I also have some celery, ginger, and some fruit (such as raisins and apples- whatever's readily available) as well. Whole baked sweet potatoes on the side (plus a white potato for my B son who doesn't like sweet potatoes.) Green beans (cooked in just oil and salt) on the side, plus pumpkin, squash or sweet potato pie. I'll probably use real pumpkin on Thanksgiving day, as we'll be using sweet potato and/or squash the rest of the month. Oh, plus homemade cranberry sauce (cranberries and pineapple juice) and some "canned berry sauce" (cranberries and sugar) for my daughter who prefers the canned stuff.

Dream up your Ideal B Thanksgiving Feast - that's the question.  
I guess you're not into it.

I'm assuming no one will be actually making the Dream Holiday Dinner I'm asking to be shared, however.

OK, dream feast...

I sleep late, watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and somebody else does the cooking (kids? the magic Thanksgiving fairy?". Meanwhile, everything is 100% compliant for me so I can eat everything on the table without worry.

Turkey, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, some kind of gooey walnut pie in a crispy rice flour crust, green bean casserole that tastes sort of like that green bean/cream of mushroom soup/canned onions on top, except that it's 100% kosher and compliant, doesn't have that "chemical after taste", and I didn't have to personally come up with complicated substitutions for everything.

Ooh, and some kind of "cornbread muffins" made from rice and millet flours that, again, I didn't have to personally bake. That's the key to this whole "dream meal" thingie, the "not having to do it myself" part, in case you hadn't noticed.

Darlin' - I read you loud and clear!  
I just wanted to make sure you hadn't forgotten how to dream, lovey.
That's what this is about.
If I were next door to you, I'd come over and make you Queen for a Day, but, alas...

There's another thread for the other blood types.
For us B's, Thanksgiving is already the Dream Holiday, and there's not much we have to do differently from the Standard Menu but, like you say, a few technical substitutions.
We can use wheat in our stuffings, we can include all the brassicas and nightshades (exc. tomato)... we can go for cream and cheeses and even wine...

May your Thanksgiving be yummy and, okay, not too much of a strain, friend.
