Pat On The Back...

Recommended Posts

I expected me to have some major meltdown today as I sat starting at my mother's pies and delt with my pumkin custard in a bowl... but I didn't. I wasn't even tempted, I didn't even get glutened with CC! I am very happy with my frist gluten-free thanksgiving and not feeling deprived or isolated from my family by my food.

I am giving myself a pat on the back. A Hurrah for my willpower and nod to me putting my health before my cravings!

Good for you. Actually pumpkin custard sounds good to me. I think I did okay today eating at the family's house. I had limited choices because they werent' cooking for me. I did make a gluten free turkey dinner here yesterday. I had to come home to eat turkey and gravy. I took a waldorf salad with me which I ate the most of.

I agree--you deserve a big pat on the back! :D

We had Thanksgiving dinner at my son's home, along with about 10 people. I made a small turkey last Sunday, along with several side dishes, which I froze, so I'd have a dinner to take for myself.

That worked out great--until desert :lol: I brought some gluten-free cookies because I was too lazy to make a pie....but seeing the assorted pies and the cheesecake made me wish I had made a gluten-free pie!

But, it really wasn't so bad, and I plan to make a gluten-free pumpkin pie today because I can't stop thinking about it :D

Good to hear!!! The first year was the hardest for me. Thankfully we don't do stuffing in our Capon or things like that so a lot of our stuff is naturally gluten free.

I didn't have any CC either. I did have a full stomach the rest of the day though.

--The trek to NEPA was "fun" on Weds too--

Glad you had a good day!!! Are you back at work today? I am...but no one is here....quiet day at HMC!!!


~~~~Gluten Free since 9/2004~~~~~~

Friends may come and go but Sillies are Forever!!!!!!!

I have always made dinner at my home every year since moving out on my own. Married with kids. Diagnosed just about two years ago and this would be the second year that the turkey was made without stuffing which the family would rather have, stuffing made on stove, made baked beans, corn, mashed potatoes, all of which except for stuffing is gluten-free. Made a Srar Lee pie for the family and made a perfect pie crust and over the fall when apples first came out peeled, sliced and made up freezer bags of apple mixes for apple pies. Made one gluten-free and it tassted great. Even attempted the gluten-free bisciuts this year, not too bad. Hope others had a great day. Went shopping this morning......Should have stayed in bed where it was warm. Have a nice Holiday season Everyone! :rolleyes:

I had a mini meltdown and a couple times I wanted to cheat. Part of the problem was I didn't get to go to Whole Foods the other day but I'll start picking stuff up now for Christmas. I got a little CC yesterday only because I had to cook in a house that wasn't mine. I almost gave in to the cornbread and pumkin pie. I guess I'll make my own pumkin pie when I have a chance. I'll do better with Christmas.
