HI all, I am invited to a Thanksgiving party, and I will have to "bring my own" because there is no way I can make my friends redesign the whole menu around my diet. I usually bring something, and normally I would have baked a gluten-free desset, because desserts are my specialty.

BUT!

My stove and oven have been kaputt for weeks and the company says it won't be ready by Thanksgiving. So all I have is a small electric camp stoves.

Is there any Thanksgiving recipe that I can make in absence of a proper stove, and that would survive 6 hours of travelling? I am a foreigner, so I am a bit at a loss when it comes to typical recipes for Thanksgiving, beyond turkey and pumpkin pie... :P

Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Grave's disease (2011). It must have been a Black Friday.
Intestinal dysbiosis. Suspected damage to my vili (2012). NCGS according to my dermatologist upon seeing my post-wheat rash.

Gluten-free. Sept 2012.
Canola, almonds, soy = evil.

Grain-free, legume-free. December 2012.
No peanuts and tree nuts. February 2013.
Erb-Duchenne palsy from birth trauma.

My body is trying to kill me.

I think you could be forgiven for not cooking with a broken stove! How about bring drinks? Sodas or wine or cider?

ooh, THAT's smart! I can bring drinks! Thanks! I think a fancy dessert wine is always a good bet...

If you really felt the need to cook something you could do a cranberry sauce.

Yes we will cook most of this. What usually happens when we cook (every Sunday) I make my plate before we start dinner. So on thanksgiving I would do my plate like normal and do an extra for the Dec 1. Both would be plated before guests arrive.

Here is an idea:

layered pudding and sugared fresh fruit... topped with cool whip and dusted with cinnamon or nutmeg.

It would transport well in a cooler and you could assemble at your destination in wine glasses or similar.
