Hi all!

Today is moving day for me, and boy am I nervous about it! On moving days, typically I get donuts in the AM for my volunteer helpers and pizza after as a thank you! That's out! I suppose I can still get the little devilish gluten filled monstrosities, but I fear even touching them will make me sick!

Is it rude to just offer coffee and sandwich bread (I'd have my pwm gluten-free bread) for my helpers? I just really don't want to start out my first day in my new house looking at, and/or feeling sick because someone left their pizza/donut on my new counter-top and I CC'd myself!

For myself, I have gluten-free bread, "safe" lunch meat, "safe" mustard and "safe" mayo for the sandwiches. I also have regular loaf bread for others. I hope my friends and family understand. I can always ask my bf to get some poison...I mean gluten-free foods to share. What-chu think?

Thanks for the advice! Moving van is getting picked up at 10am Pacific time! Guess I should have posted this earlier?! Thank goodness for the IPhone, so I can be checking responses/suggestions while we are mid-move!

Happy Saturday all! Thanks!

How 'bout fixing them a professional looking lunch tray with your gluten-free deli meats and cheese on it? And, even sneak in the gluten-free bread (Udi's looks most like regular bread to me). Have all your gluten-free fixings (mayo, catsup, mustard)? Have lotsa fresh fruit (apples, bananas, grapes). Cheese and gluten-free crackers, beer and water, iced tea, coffee.

Have plenty on hand so you won't have to go out shopping for a coupla days while getting set-up in your kitchen and the rest of your house.

Don't even tell them (not that you're trying to fool anyone). But, I think if you have a nice spread they won't even notice.

Gee, it's 7:30 now. Do you have time? Good luck to you! You get a new beginning in a new house!

Whenever I have guests that bring over food with gluten, they aren't allowed to bring it in my kitchen... they have to prepare it/eat it at a table in my dining room (which is wiped clean thoroughly after). Can you do the same..quarantine the gluteny food to a specific location, like a card table away from the kitchen or something? If the weather is nice, you could even do a set-up outside somewhere and make like a picnic. Then make them take any leftovers home. That way, you're not left with food you can't eat contaminating your kitchen, and your helpers will have a "thank you" meal they really enjoy.

LOL! Yeah, I probably should have ran to the grocery store last night, but I've been so busy! I have time to run today while "the men" load the heavy stuff into the UHaul. Great ideas friends! Thanks! :0)

Can you just make a meat and cheese "Party Tray"...use Udis bread (looks the most normal to me) and all the condiments (mayo, mustard, tomatoes, onions) basically make it look like a tray you bought at Safeway. Open the packages of gluten-free lunch meat, roll them, lay the cheese down in a pattern, arrange the bread in a basket with a cloth or paper napkin. Put mayo/mustard/relish in little bowls or plastic cups. Fresh fruit (apples, babanas, grapes).....it seems like a lot of work. Get enough so you won't have to go shopping for a couple of days. I'm not sure what your goal is. Or, just have plenty of beverages and offer to take them out to eat after or set another date to all get together for dinner.

What a wonderfully thoughtful person you are. Whenever I have helped anyone move all I got was a thank you and sometimes a six pack. LOL.
I think your idea to give them coldcuts and cheese is a good one as is the idea to restrict where they eat the gluten bread if you have it. Got a porch? If there is a store nearby maybe you could call the deli and have them do up a platter for the helpers since you have your own for sure gluten free stuff. That way you don't have to worry about putting stuff together while you have so much to do.
Have a great move and enjoy the new home.
