This post is especially for the newbie people trying to go gluten-free. I was diagnosed in December of 2002. I already was soy limited due to my long history of hypothroidism plus add gluten-free/Casein free. PHEW!!!


This past thanksgiving meal I cooked for 11 people. Nine people do not have any dietary restrictions. My husband should be gluten-free but cheats. Of course, I obstain from Gluten like the plague.

My mom brought the stuffing and pumpkin pie. I made delicious gluten-free biscuits from Pamela's pancake mix. Turkey, gluten-free gravy, very delicious. Biscuits (not gluten-free)Cranberries, mashed potatoes, sweet, sweet potatoes, asparagus with hollandaise sauce, and a green bean casserole(which was not gluten-free). Finally, I made a gluten-free apple crisp which I loved. I did put gluten-free ice cream on top!! Yummy!!

What is the most exciting is that my body is more tolerant of the casein than it has been in the past. I make a point to only eat the casein on special occasions.

It was a HAPPY THANKSGIVING THIS YEAR!

Yep, I made the whole meal gluten-free/CF/VLF (that last one is VLF), and while it was tricky and my husband still can't stand the aftertaste of gluten-free flours (hence he didn't like the pie), it was considered tasty by everyone. I only wish I could eat all the pie at once without blowing my diet! ;-)

I ate mashed potatos with butter only, sweet potatos, turkey that was the furthest from the stuffing and while everyone else was having pie, I made a desert that was sugar walnuts, ice cream, choclate syrup and whipping cream. Now I am sick but don't know why. I was so proud of myself because my mom makes the very best dinner rolls I have ever had and I picked one up when nobody was watching but put it back down. I decided cheating was not worth it. The problem is I am sick and I wonder if it was the jerkey I ate on the way down. I had read on a post in here it was ok but then after I ate it I noticed it was smoked. Could that of done it? ;)
Thanks

My bet would go on the turkey that was cooked with the stuffing. CONTAMINATION!!!! Never eat turkey that is cooked with stuffing.

Are you saying that even though the turkey I ate never touched the turkey it could still have gluten? I am so confused because I thought that as long as my food didn't touch the stuffing it would be ok?
What is the best thing to do when I go to realtives houses for dinner?

If you are eating turkey that was cooked with stuffing inside of the bird, you are asking for trouble.

Ok, Thanks Jessica
I guess it wouldn't of made a difference then if I had eaten that roll! I don't really mean that, it's just sometimes I wish I could eat all of the foods I miss most. I used to love to bake and cook and it seems that I don't have the energy for cooking anymore. When I do it never tastes the same. Guess I am just feeling sorry for myself now. :unsure:

Let's say you're stuffing a bird. You grab a handful of stuffing with one hand, and hold onto the turkey with the other, and shove it in. As the bird gets full, you may use both hands to get the stuffing inside the turkey. Then you hold the turkey again on another handful. Bingo - stuffing on the turkey, where you might eat it.
