This is my first year diagnosed as a celiac. So at first I was in a ba-humbug mood about it and just thought ill just eat my usual boring food.  But then I got into spirit I, would like to go to town like the pilgrims and Indians did. So what are you guy's feasts like? Oh and brands for everything that's not fresh fruit veggies and meats I need product names😋 thanks everyone!

Check back on the post from the past, I did one 1-2 years ago with the recipes for my dressings etc I think. I use Riverside turkey says no gluten...I do not eat it but I know I can cook it for the family safely. I use Authentic Foods Potato starch for dusting the pans, thickening gravies, dusting the turkey bag (a turkey bag can be used in the oven to cook the bird and you do not have to baste it). I also used to use authentic foods garfava flour to make a cornbread/dressing bread knock off. Using my keto bread this year. I am also making keto diner rolls this year. Delmonte makes safe green beans, I am cooking with a local gluten-free store brand of bacon in the pot and I use either pacific brand or kitchen basics stocks. Big Tree Farms coconut sugar is used to fix stuff for the family desserts, use my own pie crust (recipe in the recipe section) I have used libby pumpkin but am using a local HEB organics version this year for making they pie. Most everything else is whole fresh foods. OH and spicely organics poultry seasoning, along with some of the the original liquid smoke on the turkey. Nutivia Butter Flavored Coconut oil is used under the skin and over the breast, and for cooking everywhere in the kitchen.

I would be happy to email you all of my recipes that I've collected over the last 5 years for Thanksgiving (and my Christmas recipes if needed). I have some super easy (i.e make ahead and crockpot friendly) and tasty recipes for everything: turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, etc. 

Product specific, I do like the Udi's classic French dinner rolls.

This year I have to go easy. So I'm cooking a turkey thigh (assuming they sell those at the store), zucchini cooked with olive oil and salt, and homemade gravy. Etalia artisan style bread (boule), and pumpkin pie. Will space these things throughout the day as I can only eat small amounts at a time.

Gravy:

2Tbsp butter

2Tbsp Pamelas flour

2 cups homemade chicken broth

salt to taste

Stir butter and flour with a whisk in a fry pan with heat on. Slowly add broth while stirring, salt to taste. It's done when it thickens a tad.

 

Pumpkin pie recipe off the Libbys canned pumpkin label.

Don't forget it's not about the food.  It's about being with your people. 

We've had good luck with Kroger's gluten-free turkey dinner from the deli area, if you don't care to cook.  I didn't care for their sides, but the turkey was good.

We now save turkey for Christmas and have brisket for Thanksgiving. A good BBQ place will offer it gluten-free on their catering menu with gluten-free and gluten condiments available.

    • Thanks for the tips about lactose, cyclinglady. I will try using lactose enzymes and reduce her intake of milk just to be safe. Can't hurt. Ando yes, as far as I understand, the rest of the children will eventually get screened, I will ask for it for sure. I guess my husband and I should request screening too if she's diagnosed. I must say it's a rather mysterious disease, in how it manifests, if that is in fact what she has. She had just had almost 3 good weeks with only minor symptoms (pain and mild occasional nausea). Could "flare ups" be stress related? I have no idea why these symptoms started up to begin with, but it coincided with starting kindergarten and some stressful adjustment issues for her, so we actually believed her symptoms were caused by anxiety. That's why we consulted her pediatrician in the first place, and he ordered the celiac test so we could rule out all physical causes. In the past few weeks, we have set up a number of things to help her cope with stress better, and the GI symptoms also improved.  In last night's episode, she woke up apparently from a food related nightmare, probably because she was feeling ill, and she became so worked up and afraid that she was going to vomit, shaking and sobbing, screaming and talking about hating herself and feeling like she were dead. It was very bad. We finally managed to calm her with soothing songs and lullabies, making her laugh and generally distracting her from her discomfort, and finally the whole thing resolved itself without any vomiting. She also seemed to get a lot of relief from learning the acupressure technique, which I think has to do with the placebo effect and the feeling of having some control over her symptoms, more so than with the effectiveness of the technique. So, I am beginning to think there is a psychological component to this and that even if she does have celiac, she is not very symptomatic unless she is under stress. Does that sound like something you experienced prior to being diagnosed and eliminating gluten? PS, I am grateful that you folks have been so supportive and forthcoming with your advice and I am glad to know that I can find help here if she is diagnosed. 
    • Thanks for the replies! yeah, the doctor was also betting that it was likely a gluten reaction. Im currently on week 3 with legs improving a lot but hands getting much worse, so not sure where I stand haha. The doctor said if there isn't an improvement in 3 weeks to seek a rheumatologistt, so heres hoping xmas season ends well...   Thanks for all the replies!  
    • As was explained to me - Your gut heals and yes, you probably could eat gluten again and not feel any ill affect, for a while.  However....!  The damage is starting all over again.  Like picking a scab off of a sore.  Sort of a nasty comparison but accurate.  Celiac never goes away.    Google the banana babies.  Very interesting as it fully explains why celiac was once thought to be a childhood disease, 
    • I take Slice of Life gummy multivitamins. I think it's free of all that stuff.  
    • I wouldn't worry about the oven.  We moved in a rental house short term while waiting for our current home to go through and  I wiped out the oven and then used it.  No problems.  When visiting a friend who cooks pies all the time  I just pop a loose piece of tin foil over my stuff.  I think covering the stuff is more for my mental health than anything else!
