No One Will Come Over To Eat At My House

Recommended Posts

Bring the most amazingly tasty looking food you can come up with - including some luscious desert. Then sigh while you're chowing down and say "yep..... gluten-free food......"

I intend to!

I am bringing meatloaf, fresh green beans with mushrooms - with forbidden olive oil...lol - and a small salad - for dessert. My gluten free dairy free pumpkin pie with a chocolate sauce and homemade raspberry sorbet. :) :)

OK.....does your sister live 45 minutes closer to me or farther? I might need an extra hour to get there? Bring some of that homemade strawberry soda from the soda pop thread! And bring enough for my son M. He will love it! :D

Thanks everyone! We've decided to go to my sisters house and I am going to bring my own food. She said that she didn't invite us at first because she feels bad eating in front of me. Thats awful.

Anyway..thanks!!

I had the same problems with friends. I met new friends when I moved shortly after being diagnosed. They didn't invite me to hang out when they knew they were going to eat because they didn't want to eat in front of me. I had to address it with them since I knew that they were going out and not inviting me. I think a lot of people do this because they are afraid of offending us by eating in front of us, but then don't invite us which actually hurts more. They think they are sparing us when really they are making us feel left out.

Have you read Elisabeths hasselbeck book "The gluten-free Diet: A gluten free Survial Guide. It provides a alot of really good tips and what to do in every situation. It has really helped me with everything I have done.

I would highly recommend buying it. http://www.(Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned)/gluten-free-Diet-Gluten-Free-Survival-Guide/dp/1599951886

My favorite thing is to make something and not tell people its gluten free. So when they rave about it being really good. I just smile because they would not have thought so if I had told them it was glutne free.

I am frustrated with you. :angry: Take a look at this wonderful layer cake. It is easy to make and tastes divine. Very moist AND meets all your requirements. It calls for either olive or veg oil (you'd think in a cake she wouldn't notice!), no dairy, no corn, no soy... I have made it many times for guests who would not have known it was gluten free but for my celiac. Believe me - I am an avid baker and this one is a winner. The buttercream is awesome (does not even use butter!). Just look at the picture - who could resist THAT?

Would you like some dairy, soy, corn, gluten free-meal ideas? I literally spend most of my time in the kitchen. :)

OMG....Thankyou for turning us on to "the glutenfree goddess" link It's wonderful... the recipies are GREAT !!!! :D:D:D

I just finished printing out recipes for Brownies..pizza... and Karinas gluten free pumkin pie with praline and coconut-pecan crust!!!! Why go crustless if you can have that for a sub!!! :P

Oh...and a question for love to travel...what is the picture on your avitar? it looks like desert?!

My guess is a close up of some kind of diped cherry? looks yummy... whatever it is!

Great! I have made about 20 of her recipes and so far they are definitely amongst my favourites. The brownies are very good.

I agree about scratch baking and cooking - I very rarely go out because the stuff we can make is so amazing that there is no need. Although you CAN make your own sub buns! Do you have a French bread loaf pan? You can make them on that.

The photo is of grilled spider crabs with shaved truffles and dots of aged (the real thing) balsamic. It is from Croatia where the food is spectacular.

Why can't you make 'some of each type of food?'. Tell your mom there will be 'regular' foods. Then send those foods home with the visitors when they leave so you won't be tempted to eat it!

I agree your mom is being a princess, but nothing you can do about that...kill her with kindness...

I do agree- so far, I DO think some of the gluten-free foods taste unfamiliar- 'grainy'.

PS You don't have to tell her EVERYTHING....:)

Hope all goes well.
