So Excited!

Recommended Posts

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!!

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'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!)
