I know Thanksgiving is only a month a way, but I'm already becoming anxious. I have gluten-free since my celiac diagnosis in January. I have never had meals at other family/friends home since becoming gluten-free. That is mainly because my immediate family on my side just refuses to get it. Only my husband and teenage daughter get how serious it is and have seen how sick contamination makes me.
This year we were invited to my husbands brother's home for Thanksgiving. My husband immediately volunteered to cook the turkey so he knows it will be gluten-free. His niece graduated from culinary school in NYC last year and took a semester in gluten-free baking, cross contaminiation, and all other aspects. Her bff was diagnosed Celiac while they were in culinary class together. So, in a sense I do feel safer with them as I feel they will take my condition seriously and not treat me as if I'm doing this on purpose like my side of the family does.
My question, do any gluten-free vets out there have any suggestions of how to enjoy the holiday without making myself sick?
