My family agreed to a gluten-free thanksgiving this year!! (Of course since I'm cooking it they didn't have to MUCH choice)
So here's my menu so far...

Turkey
Ham
Corn
Carrots
gluten-free Pasta Salad
Peas

(we have odd foods for turkey day)

So here's my question!
Any ideas on easy to make foods for a family of 6?
Anyone else doing a gluten-free thanksgiving?
How do you handle the holidays?

My Christmas will probably NOT be gluten-free as I'll be home home and no one in my extended family understands Celiac, and most of them think I'm just spoiled....

Thanks everyone!!

What about gluten-free corn bread? There are mixes that are good and easy?

Baked yams/sweet potatoes? I do mine with ginger, but you could do the traditional-ish marshmallow thing.

Black bean mango salad?

brazillian cheese rolls?

There is a FANTASTIC gluten free pumpkin pie recipe on the Betty Crocker gluten free page. I made it yesterday. It's amazing!

I love this recipe: also doing Libbys pumpkin pie with Wholefoods gluten-free crust.




Sour Cream Cornbread

Gluten free

1 small can creamed corn (8 oz.)

(Libbys uses no wheat starch)

1-cup sour cream

1/2-cup canola oil

2 eggs

1 cup yellow cornmeal

2 tsp. baking powder

2 tbsp. Sugar

Mix all ingredients together. Pour into and 8X8 oiled square baking pan. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.





**Check labels carefully because companies may change ingredients.

I'm so excited for you - it is nice to have everything gluten-free and not worry.

You have a great menu and others have given great ideas. Our Thanksgiving
dinner wouldn't be complete without cranberry sauce, pumpkin pies and turkey and
stuffing w/ gravy. All new gluten-free this year of course. I'm hoping it will be just
as yummy!

Have a great time cooking and showing off for your family. I hope they come
around and see you aren't spoiled.

Diagnosed with Lymphoma March 2010. After surgery doctors said "Oops!"
Diagnosed with Celiac Disease April 2010. After endoscopy doc said "Aren't you glad?"
Uhhh.....yeah!
DD #1 ('99) tested negative on bloodwork but positive on 2 genetic markers. Went gluten free in July 2010 and has been symptom-free ever since!
DD #2 ('98) tested negative and has no symptoms. Didn't fork out money for genetic testing. Will watch and test regularly.
Husband tested positive in July 2010 and has refused to go gluten free. Uh huh, that's gonna bite him in the a** one day! (Pun intended!)

Here's an article in today's NYTimes about gluten-free Thanksgiving. There are some pretty decent looking recipes.
